Does this count as crafting?

Well time has passed somewhat fast recently and I have been up to alsorts. I dont really know if you would count these projects as an actual craft but I thought I would share a photo blog of what I have been up to this past week. After you have read this you should pop along to Wendy at 1st unique gifts and read her blog and the others that join in on hand made monday


Marking out the ground for a polly tunnel on Tuesday


Two hoops in place


4 hoops in place with support rail


all the metal work now complete and end of day one

day 2 (friday) putting up the timber door frames




all the timber work on the frame complete
I ran out of time on Friday and will have to go back on Tuesday next week to finnish the plastic and put the sliding doors in place.

On Thursday I was at my mums allotment where she had a bit of unusable ground beside the shed so she wanted decking put there.


the ground was covered to help stop weeds coming up.

Frame put together now to start leveling it before the boards go on.

Stuart cleaning the roof, he can now reach it.

all the boards nearly in place, just waiting on some more screws to arrive.

all done and this is my mum from behind looking at daniel

I drank the coke lol.


all done and tidying up to go home :)
So there you go a photo blog of what I was up to this week  maybe not crafty but i am feeling the effects of using muscles that have been dormant for about 6 months.
Hope you like the blog

  4. You've been very busy, time to relax and give the muscles a rest, I think. Fingers crossed that the weather keeps fine. Hugs Sue x

  8. Shoot, that's crafting writ large! Wow, I'm really impressed. Wish I had been doing a blog when my husband and I lived in TX and put in a little rustic garden with Koi pond. I get what you mean about using muscles you never use. So, next time you feel like doing a project like this, come here! I'll put you to work! :)
