Happiness is.....

A lifetime driven by passion
is far more fulfilling
than a lifetime
driven by money.
David B. Cox
A lovely good morning to you all. I have had a busy and happy week this week....I will share it with you. The busy side of the week was speeding along with work commitments and also getting baby gear ready for a special baby the stork delivered to one of my friends.
A baby sack had to be made in a hurry too! This sack will come in handy as a laundry bag. I used lovely soft cotton and in bug print to make this cute little sack.

Busily chipping away at more gifts for the tourist centre....I have embroidered the town name, lazy daisy flowers and a beautiful white swan onto this little cushion. Using folk art, I have painted the water and the inside section of the swan and stitched tiny beads to give the effect of sparkling water under the swan.
 As usual the knitting is happening as well. I was busily trying to get this finished but didn’t make it in time to send off in the baby parcel. This will be for someone else now. Lol.
Happiness is........
Being surrounded by those you love (including the photographer)
Taking in the beauty at Vatican, Italy
  Happiness is........
Listening to lovely music being played by musicians in Florence (Firenze)

   Happiness is........
The gorgeous scent of white musk drifting through the house
   Happiness is........
A friendly jab from a special friend....(Heather the feather)
How was your week? I do hope it was special. If it wasn’t, you can always make next week special.....you choose what sort of week you will have. Next week is planning lots of stitching, knitting and peace.
Cheers, Anita.

Just had a little bit of happiness here today. The family came over for lunch and we watched the Canada/Finland hockey game at Sochi.
You've got some lovely projects there.

Lovely to see all that is making you busy. Lovely baby gifts. I think the swan is a great idea for the tourist centre.
Keep having a wonderful week!

Baby Powder is not recommended as it is a carcinogenic. Best to leave it out of the parcel
