Normally I like to wait until stuff is finished before blogging it - it makes for better before and after photos! At the moment though, I seem to have a few projects on the go - so I've decided to a bit of an inbetween post of where I am with these things! Also just so you know I'm like.. doing stuff.. as opposed to sitting around and watching tv - which, I am doing, but I'm doing other stuff at the same time. uhuh. yep.
Anyway - firstly I'm working on a mosaic framed blackboard, to go on the outside of the house to be a sort of to-do list for garden stuff. I think it should liven up the 80s brickwork.
Secondly - I'm working on a set of the dreaded weightlifting figurines - the last set I did spent the evening toppling off the cake (it's rather top heavy as you can imagine) - I'm not sure this will be any better but at least I won't be around to witness it..
Thirdly, a few weeks ago I did the hardest gardening I have ever done and spent 2 days digging up and removing wheelbarrow load after wheelbarrow load of nasty cheap sharp-edged pebbles and replacing it all with a new lawn. At least it will be a new lawn if it keeps growing. It's only about one eighth of the total surface area of nasty pebbles in the garden but it's the most annoying. It was such backbreaking work to get it to this stage I'm not sure I'll be able to face doing any more anyway.
