At the beginning of summer
I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with myself
so I created a board on pinterest of things that I would like to make
One of the things I pinned was a beautiful string picture
which I found on this blog
I decided that I wanted to make one for my new uni room
and used Dina's great instructions
It has taken me a VERY long time!
I’m pretty slow at making and finishing anything
and instead of using cork as Dina suggested, I decided to use MDF
which made banging in the nails hard work and noisy!
I nailed one letter a day which was quite tedious
but I kept at it, as I was desperate to start my rainbow threading!
I have finished it now and I’m so pleased!
I can’t stop looking at it!
Mum also loved it and has decided to copy me he he
she is making one for our hall
it will say 'Sweet home' once it's done!
After I finished my string picture I suddenly had lots of free time again
so I made some jamaica flower iced tea, I found the recipe here
It was delicious!!!
and to go with it, some yummy chocolate and almond fudge
I found the recipe in mum's huge pile of recipes pages
Dad was pleased and said it was the best fudge he had ever tasted!
it isn't hard to please him with food though, he likes just about everything
and lots of it.
I hope you've enjoyed my posts
I have had fun hijacking mum's blog
I think this will be my last one
I'm back off to uni at the end of September
thank you for all your lovely comments on my previous posts
