I am sure you know that it was Half Term last week...well that means I get days off in the week so on the Friday I went to Linda's. We both have several of those little patchwork 2 1/2" squares and didn't know what to do with them but Linda had found a pattern for a cushion.It was meant to be 5 squares by 7 squares with no border down the sides so that it resembled a photo contact sheet. However, I decided that I would take the idea and fit it to my own cushion. I chose to go with 5x5 squares.

What with all the rain and that we have had recently, I have found it quite tricky to be inspired by happy things! I have focused on the fact that I am not flooded; that I am better off than many in the UK at the moment, but these aren't things I can take a picture of! So for my week 5 I decided to take a picture of a Lego Day we had at school. In the morning the younger children spent the time learning how to build properly, by overlapping the joins, and how to construct a roof with supports. I have to confess that I was prepared to not enjoy this day as I find Lego frustrating in the extreme. However there was such a huge array of different bricks that I was able to build this church....complete with graves! Now I am converted!

My husband is a police officer and one of his colleagues is expecting her first child soon; a baby boy. Hubby asked me if I could make her a little something....well I needed no further excuse to get out my hook and order wool so a baby ripple it was to be! I bought several shades of blue and used a random stripe generator and this is it....

I don't like posting pics of myself....especially when I have no make-up on. Believe me, I have tried to photograph this hat without me in it but I just can't! The straight on views were even more awful so you get a side view. Basically it is a beret, embellished with these rather subtle flowers. Took me one evening and it is cheering me up wearing it on these dreary, wet days!

New year, new project needed! Each month, Burnice, Linda and I meet in Burnices'cabin to craft. We do a variety of things but this year I suggested that we stick to one, build it up a month at a time, type project. So we have decided to crochet a few blocks each month from this book.

Not quite sure why but I have not been able to get on Blogger to update. I expect it is a PC glitch but I think I have found a way round it so here goes with some catching up. First off the second week of happy....It was Burnices' birthday and we went to a restaurant in Brighton to eat with a live opera singer! Great fun and def made me very happy!
