Sunday 23rd March Snow and Amigurumi

Woke up this morning to a light scattering of snow.It carried on snowing for a while, heavily at times.By the evening it was all gone. We did go out for a short drive round the countryside as it all looked so pretty.
I finished my first attempt at Amigurumi today.A little cat. I think that the head is too big and it is all a bit wonky.I also did not have the correct eyes but couldn't wait until I could get to the shops.
On the whole, for a first attempt,I am quite pleased

Good Friday Simple Pleasures

There are some things that just make you feel good.Well if not good then just a little better.My coffee machine is one of these things.Not a big thing,doesn't change my life but lifts me.
We all need things like this.However busy or skint there should always be something just for you. Its all to do with balance.I am a great advocate of having a good life balance. Over the past years it has sometimes been the only thing that has kept me sane. Just a little time, or a little something for me

Sunday 16th March

Weekend started well with 3 sales of brooches (all to same customer) on Friday .Managed to get them in the post in the afternoon and the post office excelled itself by delivering them the next morning
Haven't done an awful lot else, however have made myself a little crafting apron.Will do if I ever do a craft fair as well.
MrS (with a bit of help from his friends) has started the work on the floor of the utility room and has done loads of painting as well.
Son's birthday this week.Can't believe I am the mother of a 24 year old.Think he wants money for some car bits.I also have a trip with school to Stansted Mountfitchet castle.Could be the last one of those I go on.I have Embroiderers Guild on Monday and patchwork group on Tuesday then quiz night Wednesday.It is going to be a busy week.
