From where I am though, I have an excellent view out of the window and I have been watching the birds. Sparrows, blackbirds, starlings , a male black-cap and a brightly coloured red-wing.
At lunch time we went in to the hospital to see Granny and had a picnic in the day room. The bairns thought it was great fun. Not too sure what the nurses made of it all though especially when I opened a small bottle of white wine for the old girl.
I have finally got a design for my Christmas table runner.
Of all things I was inspired by a pair of mittens hanging up.
I have drawn out a plan, made a template and chosen the fabrics.
This morning I cut out the paper templates and started to sew the fabrics on to them. One shoe done, three to go.
I am also making a small felt Christmas decoration in the shape of an elf shoe.I'm really enjoying making this. I have started to embroider this now and if I have time I'll make a little soul to go inside to neaten it all off.
Whilst with Granny I showed her the quilt I'm making for her and got her to choose a Baltimore pattern to go in the middle. She has chosen a lovely vase picture with mixed flowers. The main flower she wanted was a purple Iris.
The rest of the week has been quite uneventful. Work, visits to granny, youth club. You know how it is. Oh I remember .. on Friday we had a new member of staff start. Gosh she is good, and such a lovely lady. I am so lucky having such nice people to work with.
