I'm much happier than last time we chatted. Child #1 is rather happy too. Well wouldn't you be, with a week off school! He's thoroughly taking advantage of his new disability. He's got his little sister chasing back and forth after him, fetching drinks and making toast. (he says he can't spread the butter one handed.)
Now cast your mind forward to the morning of last weeks little trauma! This is the craft project I was photographing. I had some little pieces of felted woolly jumper left over from the friends challenge and the Love bag. So I thought I'd make some more heart decorations. These are a little bit smaller than the original ones I made, but they're still stuffed with cloves and smell wonderfully Christmassy. I did flirt with the idea of opening a Folksy shop and popping them up for sale, but I think it might be a bit late now.
I'm starting to catch up now. This weekend, we stayed at home, apart from a short visit to a small Christmas Craft Fayre held at Gayle Mill.
It really was far too cold
to venture very far.
At last we're up to date! This is what I've been doing today.Playing with all the squares for child #2's patchwork quilt. You remember? The one I started to plan back in erm... August. Child #2 and I randomly spread the squares out on the spare bed in the attic, and then when she wasn't looking I randomly fiddled with them a bit more! (ssh! Don't tell her.) I've just started to sew them together.
So that's me, all up to date now. Wow it feels good. I must just say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little brother, who is 40 today. x
And a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my father in law for yesterday. x
till next time.
