Sorry I’ve been away for ages …forgive me ?? so just what on earth have I been up to ?? Well funny you should ask grab yourself a cuppa and I’ll explain ~ the time was right for me to take a starring role in Gelfling Grandson’s life ..tongue in cheek quote – obviously his daddy has the starring role I’m more of your best female artist
I now do virtually all the school runs, Moo stays with Beloved & I a couple of nights a week depending on 2nd Born’s work placements from his nursing uni course and I have altered my working life to school hours during term time only ~apart from every other weekend. Now for the really important news ….I have taught myself to use dpn and have embarked on my first pair of socks !!!!
I now feel like I’m leading some sort of incredible double life, learning something new AND having a youngster around ….. which really gives you a whole new lease of life
Many thanks to ‘one creative family’ for hosting a giveaway, I’m one very excited girl to be announced the winner ..yes little old me !!! to be a recipient of such a hand crafted prize is an honour Thank you ‘one creative family’ for your generosity … why not call over & show this blog some love ..it will be a visit to be savoured
I don’t usually do ‘serious’ posts but this is an exception, I came home from ‘ The Workplace’ this afternoon, logged on, answered a few e-mails, checked a few blogs,and as I had a moment to spare thought I’d have a quick look in on FB, I knew straight away something wasn’t right by the amount of private messages awaiting me, my account has been hacked, a VERY EXPLICIT video proclaiming to feature my good self … (AS IF !!!!!!! ) has been sent to family, friends, work colleges & goodness knows who else. I’m fortunate enough to have some trustworthy friends who reported it for me, I’m absolutely gutted, what has someone gained by doing this ?? Did the person who did it feel it’s just a laugh & that no one will be hurt ? Well I am hurt, I’ve deactivated all my accounts & feel isolated & in tears, I may be missing quite a while until I come to terms with such cruelty
Everyone I have come into contact with over the last couple of weeks has had a cold, after denying all offers to succumb, last week I thought what the heck bring it on, I’ll have your germs ….BAD IDEA ..yes I know it was free, but it’s not all it’s cracked up to be- Beloved & I spend our evenings trying to outdo each other as we attempt to cough up a lung, even so I’m looking on the positive side
Of course when your awake at some unearthly hour of the morning you get to thinking, and what you may wonder crosses my mind during these times ?? for me it’s been fabric
Have you seen this beauty ?? I’m going to have to buy some even though I have no imminent need for it ..but it’s best to be prepared right ??
Now back to the title of my post, while browsing through one of my old books I came across Prayer / Church Dolls, the same day I saw one on-line, I took this as a sign so Beloved & I had an amble around our local antiques shop where I brought home half a dozen vintage handkerchiefs, and here is my first attempt at making a Hush doll
Isn’t she simply adorable, she will be right at home at the cottage .. plus I get to re purpose BONUS
After having had some quite busy days I had a demanding need to craft something… well,to be honest, I have tried to cross stitch the second cup but my two attempts turned out so very inglorious…
Quite ugly and not neat at all…. so I decided to change the subject and picked up a nice pattern among those on my Pinterest Cross stitch board… and since this is the second cross stitch project meant for Roma and since every cottage needs its own fairy…. here it is, my tiny one…
Small, neat, sweet and ready to be framed! I hope that she will be a nice cottage guardian 🙂
PS: I have forgotten the wings!!!! What fairy has no wings!!!! I’m out of my mind indeed…. so I have just embroidered them….
So yet again this morning I open up WordPress and I find that everything has changed visually. I am happy to embrace change and value the fact that I am hosted free of charge here on WordPress but I do think at times the old adage “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” comes to mind.
I am not a luddite but having battled with the new editing with its irritating boop de boop – deformating – cumbersome structure I returned to the classic mode. Suddenly menus are moved to the left and I thought I had a brain event overnight – then the dashboard changed last week and now we have icons instead of text and all without so much as a word of warning..
It is getting to the point when I dread opening up the platform and so as a simple request to make my Christmas more…
