|At 90, it's taken her 3 days to put a sentence on 18 cards, but I'll address them|
Just noticed Rosie asleep on the armchair behind, with the abandoned hexie quilt on the back.
and DD2, on Saturday, practicing on her newly acquired machine
|A sneaky one from my perch on the sofa!|
They both hate their pictures taken and would kill me for doing it, let alone posting them here - heehee! But I'm just so darn proud of them both.
Meanwhile, I've been tackling the craft/spare room as I'm replacing the sofa bed with a proper, double one which will be surplus to requirements when DD1 moves house this month. The room has got so bad, due to me diving in and plundering, every time I start something new, downstairs at my sofa 'work station', and there not being a proper 'home' for everything.
'Not before time' I hear you mutter, quite rightly!

removed from the wardrobe

What a difference a day makes - and some lovely new storage boxes. I only dared show the last two shots, cos this is how the wardrobe looks now - phew!!
I don't dare show you the rest of the room at the moment, but will, when yet more storage boxes arrive and get filled with fabric. These 45L ones are a great size for the job.
Yesterday, we celebrated my friend Joyce's 87th birthday with a wreath making workshop I did for my prayer group. They all seemed to enjoy it - well, Joyce looks happy with her result.
Back at home on the sofa, I'm still surrounded by Christmas pressie project bags - the holly brooches are almost complete, there's a minion with one leg, and the cards are well underway. Just about managing to swap/hide projects, depending on who's in the room with me!

I hope you're having a good week, and keeping any festive pressure at bay. I have to say, I love Advent, and the lead up to Christmas, but then I am just a big kid at heart.
