For once I wasnt the designated driver - I rarely drink alcohol so dont mind staying tea-total & driving. Im such a lightweight these days - I didnt drink at all while having the children & breastfeeding... that was a fair few years ago, now I have a glass of wine very occasionally with a meal. We had a very nice bottle of merlo on the tablet... a glass & a bit later (it really WAS very nice) I was feeling distinctly mellow.
The children were back to school on the Monday - little rascals tried very hard to convince me that it was infact a teacher training day & they didnt have to go to school. Unfortunately for them - I can vividly remember being young & at school myself, so Im not the easiest person to get one over on :o)
This meant I had Monday to play with my felt. I experimented with texture & colours, and felting a cape seamlessly. The cape experiment was less than successfull, but it was a good learning curve. Plus the felt itself is lovely & shall be used elsewhere. By the way, Im definately obsessing over purple & green... the colour/texture experiment was inspired by a photograph of lavender, grass & poppies in France... rather predictably its mostly purple & green - but I LIKE it! :o)
Tue, Wed & Thu were given over to work & waiting in a garage while my car was tested - passed easily thank goodness.Friday my lovely husband suprised me with a day off, we mooched around Ikea - I got some very cool hangers that I think will be great for displaying scarves at craft fayres (will take pics soon), had lunch & big messy cream cakes - it was nice.
This week is pretty much open for me to do as I wish (I think) apart from Friday, when my son has his first appointment to see an Orthodontist. So Im hopeing to do lots of fun felt/fibre stuff. I cant get onto my bigger projects for a while yet though - I must order more fibre... I hate waiting.
ooo yes, I was awarded a Sunshine Blog award by www.woollylakes.blogspot.com . Thank you so much for that! I enjoyed looking at the other blogs that she gave the award to & have started following a couple of them myself. I started making a list of my 12 favourite blogs this morning... my problem is that most of them have already received one of these awards & I dont want to send something theyve already done - it may not be welcome. Anyway, well worth having a peek at the Woollylakes blog (sorry, I dont know her name) & also checking out the other blogs she listed (especially the felt blogs)... think the post was on the 26/2 if you are checking back
Ah well, my tummy is telling me its lunch time so I shall love & leave you - have a wonderfull week whatever you are doing :o) xxx
