The sun is shining, where’s the snow?

This was supposed to be posted last night but unfortunatley I lost my connection whilst uploading the pictures and by that stage I gave up and resorted to a night in front of the fire with my knitting and a hot chocolate :o)

The sun is shining today and beaming through the house, it’s just gorgeous. Randy is certainly enjoying it …

and I’ve got my washing out on the line. Look at this beautiful blue sky.

It feels like a summers day, apart from the fact that it’s still actually very cold, but that hasn’t put me off. It’s like one of those days when on a weekend break you sit in a plaza drinking coffee and eating croissants watching the world go by so I decided I can’t exactly do that at the moment so I compromised and had coffee and croissants alfresco …

Ok after the first croissant I was freezing and had to move inside but it wasn’t that bad. The sun was beaming down which made it warm … ish. Am I taking this positive thinking a bit too far?

Well apart from all that here are some of my recent makes over the last couple of evenings.

It started with this. I decided my plain cream cushions were, well exactly that, a bit plain so I added a little cupcake.

Nothing like a cupcake to brighten things up.

Now that I’m back to putting washing on the line I had to buy new pegs and with that I needed a peg bag so here’s one I made (very quickly) out of another 50c bargain buy from the charity shop. I spray painted the hanger and stamped it with ‘pegs’ and voila …

Finally, as I’m in the valentines mood, I found some scraps of heart fabric from a top I made a few years ago, which I can’t find anywhere :o( and sewed some together and made a little scarf.

Then with some other heart print material I made a new hot water bottle cover

Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend x
