a little post

I felt that I should be posted stuff every week and but my life is not full of exciting things like most people's. Each day is very like the one before. Three days I go to work two days and the weekend I don't. I don't have small children to regale tales about, the cat does the odd thing now and again, John goes to work and the allotment. This time of year some of my stitching and sewing is secret. However I have been busy. I am making a Christmas fairy. She has been hanging in the shower waiting for her boots to dry.

She has clothes
although her undies are inside out at the moment.
The pattern is this
I have a box of Christmas cat pieces waiting to be assembled

I am making a jumper for a little boy,

and I have a pair of fingerless mitts that need wristbands

We had three days of rain at the beginning of the week. Yesterday it brightened up considerably and I found this little chap under the birds' water dish. He curled up small when he sensed me but I managed to catch him later

The sun is shining again today and I have two weeks to sew

We don't all have exciting lives! Mine involves being a couch potato if that makes you feel any better ;o) I'm glad you didn't give up Blogging.

Can't wait to see your fairy finished. I'm SO looking forward to putting my Christmas birds up again this year :o)
