Learn to enjoy the little things –
there are so many of them.
A big hello to you all! This week I had a pretty good run with my craft work this week. I decided to have a toy week and work away on a couple of little projects to take to the library. Meet Jill......
Miss Jill has a felt face with button eyes, a stitched on happy smile and gold woollen hair. A cheery gold hat sits nicely on her head (to keep the sun off her face). She’s having a little time in the garden before spending lots of inside time at the library. Lol
Mr Teddy, who is about 6 inches tall is going to join Miss Jill in the library. He was made out of left over flannel that I was happy to finally use up.
Someone gave me this one ball of unusual yarn and told me to make something with it. Now....what to do???
Well. I tried knitting the yarn on its own...nope, no good. I decided if I added another yarn of similar colour that it would add volume to whatever I was going to make. Success! I added 30 stitches onto No.8 knitting needles and went for it. You guessed it.....a cowl.
I added 30 stitches onto No.8 knitting needles and went for it. You guessed it.....a cowl. The colours in the photo really don’t do it justice, because it is nicer in real life. It reminds me of lots of little marsh mellows though.....so if you see me wearing it and I’m chewing away....don’t stop me! Lol
More knitting????? Why of course!
A bit of stitching going on too. Just can’t help myself at all. I’m going to enjoy this very overcast and cold Sunday finishing off this little project.
The words in the little phrase at the start of my post is a reminder for me to never forget the small things in life add up. The people I work with are so good at complimenting and thanking each other for doing the smallest of things. I have really warmed to getting compliments for helping at different times, it makes you feel very yummy inside. I have learnt to do the same back now too. How do you feel about the little phrase I have found?
Happy sewing and knitting!
