Shrinking the pond

We are both aching a bit after a day making the pond a little smaller. We have taken away some of the big rocks and made a gentle slope with large pebbles into the water. It now means there is an easy way for wildlife to get a drink or get out if they fall in. We've also removed some of the plants that had filled the pond. A very smelly job!

The next thing is to lift some of the slabs and get some smaller stones delivered so it all runs into the rest of the garden.

Cards made recently

We had another wedding at work so I made the card. (Plus a couple of others).

Drawstring backpack

I made this bag for my auntie so she had a bag for dog walking. It is big enough to hold the bits she needs and it stays out of the way when she bends over to pick up the poop. Her pouch of poop bags clips onto a D ring on the side.

Birthday favour boxes

I made these boxes a few months ago. I slightly underestimated how long they would take and had to have help from hubby. He was really impressed at being in a Hotel room on a Friday night making these instead of sampling the night life of Southampton! It did take a while to get all 50 finished.

A few cards

These are some of the cards I've made this year for family and friends.
