positive I hope!

I have decided not bore everyone with doom and gloom suffice to say no work yet this term. But I have sent for two application forms, apart time teaching post and a support assistant post. yes a backward step maybe but needs must and all that.

Having thought that last year I had not made an awful lot I put together a photo album and was surprised to see how much there was. There is one item missing.

This was a panel that had been in the stash for ages and I quilted it and bound it with this strip that came down the side of the panel. It was part of John's Christmas presents. Christmas seems a distant memory now.

At the week end we were visited by our usual group of sparrows and the collar doves. But there was great excitement when a robin, blackbird and thrush all appeared too.

The photos are all taken from the kitchen window so are not the best quality. its surprising how much time I can spend at the window watching the birds and it must be great to have a real back garden and a conservatory to sit and watch in.

I am supposed to thinking of a doll character to make for a challenge i should be taking part in. I have tried to draw what i want but it has not worked out so I shall have to find a pattern I.
can use as a template.

I have been X stitching and have finished and posted one of my swap squares and have almost finished another. A bear has requested a jumper, so I started that yesterday and on the table i have some paper craft stuff that I am playing around with.

The weather has warmed up but its dull and rainy. I have put the central heating back on timer and I am wearing my fingerless mittens! Oh and two jumpers! And a scarf!!

Thank you for visiting and special thanks if you comment

I love watching the birds in my garden but there doesn't seem to many around at the moment. Only seen the odd sparrow and blackbird.
