Getting there


We are getting there! It has been busy...busy...busy! An absolute hive of activity in fact! Workmen have been coming and going at an alarming rate! But ......walls have been painted, patio windows have been repaired, kitchen sink has been replaced, carpets have been laid and everything is starting to look very lovely indeed. We still have quite a bit of work to do, but our little house is almost ready to be put up for sale.



I am getting there with my very colourful crochet cushion cover too. Both sides have now been completed and I just have to join them together now which I will do by using this method here from the very lovely Lucy over at Attic 24. All going well I should be able to show you the finished cushion cover sometime very soon.


I am also almost getting there with two amigurumi figures that I have been making. A cute little pink birdie and a sweet little grey rabbit. They still need a few finishing touches done to them ~ such as sewing in of ends ~ but I am fairly pleased at how they have turned out.

I am really looking forward to this weekend as we have a Friday and Monday holiday from work and school. I am taking myself off on Saturday with my very best friend for a little Girly Shopping Trip and I really do intend to make the most of the day out. It is such a treat to be able to go out shopping without having to have eyes in the back of your head whilst keeping watch on two wandering small children. It is also such a treat to be able to stop for coffee and cakes and a lovely lunch when you want to....... instead of listening to cries of 'I'm hungry' or another favourite 'I’m bored’!!

I hope that everyone has a very lovely weekend and I will ‘see’ you all sometime next week :O)

Those 2 little amigurumi creatures are just gorgeous Jackie as is your cushion. I hope you have a wonderful day out with your friend.

Loving the crochet, the little figures are so cute.

Looks like everything is coming together for you in the house ready for selling.

And hope you have a fun time on Saturday with your friend. You really do appreciate "grown up" time all the more when you have children.

Have a lovely weekend and week.

I'm glad to hear the house news - it can be a real upheaval, but it sounds well worth it. Your craft work is lovely (as usual) and have a great day shopping in Edinburgh! I can just imagine you there...

Sounds like you have a lot going on... But I hope you're excited about Lululiz's rainbow/colour swap as I am. I would like to get in touch with you for the details... If you could spare the time, my e-mail address is juanitatortilla (at) yahoo dot com. (As seen on the sidebar of my blog.) Thanks! And can't wait to hear from you!
