Seven of the patches in question are from Geocaching last year. Or it might have been the year before that - I've lost track! You had to complete six challenges to get certain "souvenirs", and by completing all six, you won the seventh - the "Achiever" award. We discovered you could buy these patches and although I think you're meant to stitch them to your geocaching bag or jacket or whatever, we've opted to add them to cushions - we're likely to buy more in the future and on a cushion there won't be the faff of having to take them off when the bag breaks or the jacket wears out etc...I bought two sets - Lil Miss B has her own geocaching ID so she got her own set of souvenirs.
I'm looking forward to getting back to card making and scrapbooking though, I will admit. And some beading. There's definitely beading on the horizon...

Here's a proper shot of what's behind me while I craft. It needs a darned good sort out and tidy up!
There's a hint to one of my other hobbies, up there on the shelf.... hehehehe.

So, short and sweet this week as I'm a late-comer. Off on the hop now, to say hello to a few of you.
Ciao for now!

So no, I've not gone mad and had a stash trash or a clutter clearance. No. I've come in here, looked through my blog reading list, and had an unfollow session - clearing more than half my list and deleting a grand total of 36 blogs.
What on earth happened to everyone? All the blogs I've unfollowed have stopped running. There last post was a year ago or more. And not a word as to why...
I know I'm pretty bad at blogging regularly, but only one or two of those blogs had folks that had popped on to say "Sorry guys, last post here". It does worry me that some of our blogging buddies may have met with unfortunate ends. With that in mind, I'm going to make sure that beloved Mr B knows my logins and can at least get in here and advise you all of my demise, should that be the case. Two or three blogs had been hijacked by spammers, judging by the content!
It has made me a little more determined to keep up with my blogging, which is why I'm sat here now typing away. Can't be leaving folks without something to read!
And suggestions please, of new blogs to start following.... always welcome!

Drinking..... squash - Cherries and Berries flavour. My caffeine intake has significantly reduced these days.
Eating... Home prepped Ham & Cheese salad with black olives.
Liking.... the new me. I've lost 30lb in the last 15 months and I'm looking forward to losing more.
Hating... losing control of my eating, the days I need to binge.
Being grateful for..... my amazing 85 year old mother, we've just had her staying for the weekend and she was awesome as always. Brought with her extra crocheted granny squares for Lil Miss B's blanket, so it could be made longer.
Wishing.... for better time management skills....
