THE YEAR TURNS ANEW,
ON THE SPINDLE OF YOUR LIFE.
I was genuinely sorry to miss posting in last week's WOYWW but I had the flu and wasn't well at all, The whole family had it over Christmas so it has been an enforced period of calm (apart from the coughing!) Anyhow, it's the New Year's Edition this week and so I'd like to wish all the Deskers and any other readers the happiest and healthiest 2018 - may you have fun and adventures :-D
Believe it or not, I have done some crafting in the past couple of days, once I started to feel less grim.
I've added to the pile of beanies that are destined for my cousin's work with homeless people in Swansea, I've used my brand new Fiskars fabric scissors which were a prezzy (and awesome!!) The Land Rover fabric is going to be a drawstring bag for my great-nephew Felix - I know, I don't look old enough to have a great-anything, do I? Lol!
Just thinking about the placement of a pocket - the same stripy fabric will be the lining of the bag as well.
I've had a little tidy of the shelves - wonder how long they'll stay that way?!
And had a first go at colouring with my Spectrum Noirs, another crafty prezzy! I've enjoyed using them a lot, such a difference from the normal felt tip pens I've had in the past. I always feel as if I'm wasting time when I sit down to colour, ridiculous really, but it's something I'm going to factor in more over the next year.
We bought some new bird feeders before Christmas, ones with cages so the jackdaws and magpies can't get at the middle. It's been a great success, we've enjoyed sitting in the kitchen watching the birds tuck in. I love all the little birds....
..but these long-tailed tits are adorable. Always in gangs, they chatter away as they attack the fat balls - so sweet!
And the robin is always around to hoover up the bits that fall to the ground! Honestly, it's better than watching tv :-)
Hope you've had a great festive season! May 2018 be a wonderful year xxxxxxx
