Glorious weather!

 What glorious weather we've had this weekend it's been more like a June afternoon than a day in late March.Alice and Hamish have spent pratically the whole weekend in the garden.In the photo above you can see the late afternoon sun pouring through the kitchen window onto my most recent make . . . . . .yes another little hooky jar jacket,these thing's are great this will live on my craft table upstairs.I feel quite proud of myself as I've only been crocheting for a little over a year.I only wish I could say that this genius idea for old jam jar's was my own,but alas no this is from a great little blog called attic24.
The urge took me today with the weather being so nice to do a little spring cleaning.What was I thinking?I should have made the most of my time and spent it sewing or creating something,anything!But no the cleaning urge took me instead . . . . . .and believe me that doesn't happen very often.I would rather be creating,normally,but today I just wasn't normal perhaps it was all that sun got to me,yes perhaps that's it.I'm sure your wanting to know what the flower is above although you've probably already worked that one out.Well it's a lovely mohair knitted rose flower brooch corsage.If you fancy the pattern just let me know!

Mothering sunday

I had a wonderful mothering sunday.The morning started with cards from the kid's followed by a lovely large box of thorntons,which Hamish advised me not to eat too many mummy because you'll get bigger,bigger & bigger until you touch the sky!Cheeky little devil.
This was followed by some sewing time making a birthday present pictured above for one of Hamish's little friends.And then a visit from a friend from just up the road we had a good old catch up.To say she live's on the same road as me we just haven't had the time to see each other for nearly a year!Wow I can't believe how long it's been and we've promised not to leave it soo long next time.And I'm hoping to catch up with a few friend's at the local craft group next month over the easter holiday's.Yippee lots to look forward to I can't wait and spring is on the way,we've had some lovely bright weather today the kind that lifts your spirit's.And I love getting up early with the daylight and twittering bird song.Good-bye dark and dreary morning's. ;-)
