Well would you believe it ..... three whole days of this
and hasn't it put a spring in the step and just the simple pleasure of being able to peg washing outside on the line and putting the clothes horse down (it seems to have been a permanent fixture for months) has made me so much happier. I am not a winter person and long for lighter days .... the cold I can cope with but not dark mornings and evenings.
With the children back at school and OH back at work after six months of sick leave I am finally getting a couple of hours to myself every day. I've been out for a wander around the shops in Hitchin, visited the Barton Watermill Shopping Village for a browse and lunch and yesterday went to Laura Ashley and Dunelm to look for some bedding and fabric for my daughter's bedroom. She hasn't inherited my passion for thrifting and looks at me as though I've gone mad when I suggest budget alternatives.
I've also been catching up with UFOs ..... my vintage fabric quilts are now complete and ready for sale .... I am hoping to take them along to a craft fair in a month or two when I have a couple more completed.
I've been going round in circles again with some crochet cushion covers
I've also received some lovely orders for alphabet cushions and will be finishing another tomorrow morning.
The no strings project is coming along nicely and is now ready for edging and backing.
and this little knitted bobble tea cosy is finally finished too
It's also my first born's birthday tomorrow ..... where did the last 28 years go ???? I will be reminiscing more about this tomorrow.
Enjoy the sunshine if you are lucky enough to get some x
