What a lovely day! The day began with a knock at the door as my parcel arrived from Amazon- 5 new books. Being off means I have more time to peruse different websites and bag some bargains- yes DH they were bargains! The parcel was full of lots of crafting scruminess and I had a lovely time at breakfast looking and drooling over lots of lovely things to make. It was all very exciting.
Now, I must confess to still being a bit under the weather. I think it is as a result of my operation, but I was determined today to carry on regardless.
I had arranged to meet with a friend for lunch. As you will recall I was unable to make it out of the door on Monday- well the same nearly happened today. As I am becoming absolutely stir crazy staring at the four walls of the living room it made me resolute to not miss out again. I telephoned my friend to make escape plans if I needed to, packed a bag of emergency essential, set out and paid a visit to Boots for some over the counter remedies before we met up. The cafe was close to home so I was more confident to venture forth.
I had a lovely time. A good chat, a two hour lunch and a change of scenery……fantastic! My friend is also a good source of advice about this craft fair malarkey having done a fair few herself. This sent me into todays project with renewed enthusiasm and less fear about what I have signed up for. Cheers N 🙂
I am very excited by my big reveal today. I made it for the craft stall- but I am not sure that it will make it there! See for yourself. Drum roll please…………
Can you tell I am really pleased with my efforts? I am very proud of myself too as this is all my own work. No pattern was required in the making of this tea cosy! I am not a tea drinker but this certainly makes me want to put the kettle on! Woo Hoo!
Well my lovelies I have got to go. I have already started the giant tea cosy and I have to make plans for tomorrows big make.
See you tomorrow xxxx
