Happy things

I thought I didn't have anything to post about today but it turns out I can think of lots of happy things to write about...

1....School is going well, it feels more normal, the children are responding well to me , all in all it's great. I am a bit stressy because I've been so busy but I'm working through it. When I'm feeling stressy I try and find time to look at the sky. It's very calming because when I am busy I look down all the time- always thinking of what I have to do next. Try it...it really works.

2...I have a lovely bunch of frilly tulips from Mr Morrison, what a lot of beauties !

3...I've got a lovely new frock from Monsoon which I wore for a Christening on Saturday, I wore it with a lilac cardi. Sorry -this is turning into a shopping blog !

4...I've been experimenting with bamboo yarn, I made this lovely lacy doily the other day, don't know what for ...yet...

(It looks a bit of a strange shape here but it is round in real life !)

5...I have a really nice piece of material and a vintage pattern, I just need a little time to make it up !

6...It's a long weekend this weekend for Mayday. It's meant to be something about Worker's Day isn't it. I like to think of girls in white dresses with wands of May blossom- do they still do that ? Anyway, I'm very happy to have a 3 day weekend to enjoy with my family.

Hope you find time to enjoy the sky as well.

Love Louise xxx

  6. Hi Louise,
    Patterns for clothes brought back so many memories for me. I did a lot of dressmaking when I was a teenager. Just loved looking through the patterns and going into Housewives Choice to find material. Ooh those were the days. But the pattern for the 'frock' is lovely. I do hope it makes up nice.
    Glad School going okay.
    I do hope you find to stop by. I spoke about your squares on my blog today.
    Love to you.

  7. Hi Louise - I am so glad it is going ok - you are so right, the sky is relaxing - just gazing up is very theraputic! I love the vintage pattern and fabric that will work a treat. Enjoy the long weekend and hope the sky stays blue! **Kim**x
