One Very Happy Bunny....

Morning folks...I'm one very very happy bunny this morning...yes once again I'm going to bore you with my whooping and a-hollering over yet another Olympic gold for Team GB...and for me this one is very special....a huge three cheers for the wonderful GB Equestrian Team...Nick...Ben...Scott and Peter and they couldn't have done it without the real athletes in this sport...Big Star...Tripple X...Hello Sanctos and Vindicat. The two youngsters in the team like all our young athletes are great role models for the youth of this country proving that if you're passionate about what you do and are willing to work hard...your dreams really can come true.

I'm absolutely thrilled for them all and their fantastic support team who deserve a medal too for the years of hard work involved in bringing the horses to Olympic level but I'm especially elated for the indomitable Nick Skelton....
at 54 years old he's showjumping's bionic man...fighting to get back to the level of fitness you need to be a top showjumper after a hip replacement and a near fatal injury proving that he hasn't lost that old Skelly magic with his superstar horse Big Star.  He's a true sportsman in every sense of the word and has been a wonderful ambassador for the sport over the years..I'm so pleased he's finally won the accolade he's been chasing throughout his career...that elusive Olympic Gold and the icing on the cake would be if he can lift the Individual Gold on Wednesday...crikey I'd better look out the ear muffs for the Furry Boy.
But back to the crafty stuff which has been taking a bit of a back seat...sharing the rest of the makes from The Ribbon Girl's Mini Makes Kit 
I've used up all the felt in the kit...every last little bit...not one little inch went to waste making...
my new spectacle case from earlier in the week along with a cute little wall hanger
and a sewing tidy for my needles which are another item of cubbyhole kit 
that go missing on a regular basis...

and I still have oodles of ribbon and little bits and pieces left to play with on other projects...a great value for money kit...I can't wax lyrical enough about the felt...it's just so touchy feely soft and gorgeous quality...these kits are a crafty girl's version of shoes...you definitely need one in every colour.
The crafty list has been put on the back burner for the next few days...it's "have fun" with the grandkiddos time...fingers crossed the weather plays ball and we get out and about in the fresh air...I now have a valid excuse for being out here with a cuppa.
but I need to go and consult my Olympic Sofa Marathon Viewing List and co-ordinate it with the "off to the park to play football with Grandad" time. See you all tomorrow
