May your troubles be less and blessings be more,
And nothing but happiness walk through your door.
A beautiful good morning to you ladies!! I love Sunday mornings, they seem to come around very quickly. There is no need to rush today, I’ve had a wonderful sleep in, a cup of tea at my side, and I can share some time with you this morning.
I’ve had another week of wonderful creations that I’ve made and I would love to share them with you. I'm on a bit of a campaign to use up bits of yarn to empty out my stash and Yes! ....I have been saying that for a long time. I am slowly getting there. I've stuck with it though, and it is making a difference to the stash and it is very satisfying to watch another bag being emptied out.
I have this rule now also for my fabric stash. Do you love it when someone gives you a bag of material with all sorts of good bits in it? I do! Someone had given me a bag with strips of fabric in it and it challenged me as to what I could make with it. The strips were about 3 inches wide and very long. I had the thought that I could make...
a table runner.......
I did a little bit of stitching too this week....wow!!...the world is my oyster! I made this cute little mug carrier and all I have to add is the drawstring and it’s finished.
I really love the round bottom..too cute!!As you all realise...there would be some knitting on the go around here. Lol. I cannot resist the Feather and Fan stitch. I found an old knitting book buried deep within my collection and this pattern popped out at me. The singlet is a set and has a sweet pair of pants to go with it.
I had a flick through the most wonderful magazine in the entire world...The Homespun. Awesome projects inside this issue.
My Grandfather and Grandmother
I never got to meet you but I’m sure I would have loved you.
Here is the only photograph of my Grandfather and Grandmother I have. My Grandmother died giving birth to my mother, so my Mother could not tell me stories about her, but I bet she was lovely too.
My Mother had to hold herself together when speaking of my Grandfather...he was a happy and funny man who was always full of mischief. That sounds familiar of my own mother....and perhaps...of me. lolToday I will be spending some time with my Ag. Society friends and we're off to the trots. We are holding a Paddy's Market at the trots, so really it is a work and play day. Will any of them behave themselves? I doubt it.
Wherever you are may you have a wonderful day and I think I'll just be happy today.
