I thought I'd try and show you the journal I am prepping in readiness for our trip to China next month. One of my good crafting friends bought me this beautiful journal for my birthday last year. In fact I got another lovely journal from another good crafting friend but due to its composition its heavier, so that will be saved for another time.
I decided to randomly stamp the pages with oriental script and then on some I've also stuck some oriental script paper. I'll update you with the progress asap.
The journal then had to be put on hold while I crochet myself an hawaiian garland. This is for a wedding next Friday where the theme is strictly informal and hawaiian. Its ok for the men, a pair of shorts and a hawaiian shirt and they're done. I managed to get myself a yellow grass skirt which I shall wear either over leggings or an orange skirt. I then saw a flowery blouse reduced (not my usual sort of purchase) which has both yellow and orange flowers on. Finally, today I managed to get myself a hairband with a flower on....da da!
And finally I shall leave you with yesterday's setting sun. Aren't the colours just fab. This was perfect preparation for another lovely day today made even better by #1 son and partner visiting us in the caravan and having a lazy afternoon round the BBQ. Ah bliss!
Til next time, x
