Some times I feel I work so hard but don't seem to have much to show for it.

Part of the problem being I have poorly staff at work so I'm covering their shifts and the bairns have been under the weather , but thankfully are improving now. So all in all I feel like I've been running just to stand still. But big sigh, I seem to have caught up with most things and finally my neck, which I hurt before my trip to Birmingham, is now pain free so you'll be pleased to know I'm not so grumpy now and feel I can start writing my blog again.
|My girls.... well some of them.|
I had a lovely Mother's day and was thoroughly spoilt with chocolate , flowers , a Mary Berry cookbook and a trip to the Chinese with Granny. I love Chinese food, although I wish you could get a decent pudding there. Are there any Chinese restaurants where you can get a good pudding ?
My boys would like to say a big THANK YOU.
|Thank you |
This was a lovely gift we unexpectedly recieved from a very dear friend of ours.
We got this lovely soft linen mix in to the shop last week and it reminded me of the soft linens me Nana used to have around her house. I'm sure when she made them they would have had quite vibrant colours, but when I knew them they were faded and soft. That was what I was trying to recreate with this lavender cushion for Daisy. It's not quite finished as I'm needing to sew some buttons along one side before stuffing. Oops, I tried to center the heart but forgot that my 6" square was infact 61/2" D'oh ! The other one is for Emily. She decided she didn't want any of this wishy washy stuff and chose her own colours. I did make and finish a needle case in the same style for a friend, but I forgot to take a photo. So that was my random act of kindness for March.
I hope you have had a good productive week.
