When we are chafed and fretted by small cares, a look

At the stars will show us the littleness of our own interests.

-Maria Mitchell, Maria Mitchell, life, Letters, and Journals

A huge hello to you all, yes, I have resurfaced once again!! I have to say since taking the plunge and going to gym, my routine has certainly changed and I think I’m now getting my act into gear. If you are trying to decide whether you should go to gym for your health, I would recommend that you do it. I feel so much better in myself and my fitness is by far better now than it was. It isn’t just about losing weight but also making sure your body is in good working order. I have made sure to keep my craft work going, and what have I been up to these last couple of weeks?........

These little cuties.....

 
A cushion made from yo yo’s.....

Another one in the making......


A potato chip scarf, pattern found here....

A friend of mine put me onto this super soft yarn. Many thanks Ashlee!!

Lovely Heather shared her material find at the Op shop. Heather you are so sweet for sharing and I always say nice things about you!! Lol


And some cooking....... Little quiches that won’t last long.
 

A visit to the public library and the discovery of a fantastic cooking book. Loaded with great recipes.
 
This week I also visited the breast screening van for a mammogram. As it was my first visit I was a bit concerned as I have heard a few horror stories and a couple of positive stories. After it was over and done with I have decided there was no need to worry, it didn’t hurt. Don’t put this visit off, if you’re due for a check up......just go. I want to be healthy so I can revisit my favourite place in the world......

Italy

Cheers,  Anita.

What a great idea for the yoyos. I've inherited some that my mum made, I've never really know what to do with them, but a cushion may work
