Yes I have just realized that it is over a month since I last posted!
And those few weeks have gone by in a whoosh!
- new job
- making a start on sort out our house a bit
- visiting 2 sons in Sheffield (yes, still find it hard to believe that both sons are now studying at university in Sheffield)
- a half term train trip to Sweden and Denmark (for me and husband)
- and a school trip to Morocco for daughter which was a bit of "school trip from hell" with two thirds of the pupils suffering a sickness bug!!
But anyway, I have managed to squeeze in a bit of reading and a bit of crafting in the last few weeks - especially this weekend when I was particularly lazy and spent several hours crafting.
Firstly, I have at last finished the notebook cozy for my daughter - I posted about the notebook cozy I knitted for me to use here - I love it while at the same time thinking it is a crazy idea!
And I'm still loving that yarn - so no surprise that I've now added a few more balls to my collection!
I also love making Christmas decorations. I have made quite a few over the years but I give them away either as gifts or to our scout group for them to sell on their craft stall. I have kept a few for myself but realized I had several in various stages of construction so last weekend I finished the half-completed decorations and now have a reasonable selection of stockings, Christmas puddings, mittens and hearts!
And this is the very satisfying view I could see round my feet - ribbons, felt, cottons,
cross stitch charts, buttons, evenweave fabric - all waiting for me to be creative
with them - the possibilities are endless!!
Right, off to catch up on some blogs!
Hope you are all and happy crafting!
