Well, its taken a while but I think my mojo is coming back! - Thank you to all who left kind messages after my last post, its nice to know that so many people care. Anyway - anyone else wish the sun would come back? - that will be all of us then! - No sooner had I got used to wearing my white linen trousers, I have had to put them back in my wardbrobe in favour of warmer gear - Oh to live in England, and our great British 'summer time'
I have been busy as you can see, making another batch of pincushions which I sell in my shop, I have also been doing a lot of crochet too, but I will save that for another post.
I also made a little purchase this week from the Charity Shop (well, I use the word 'I' loosly, in actual fact what happened was I sent darling Hubby into the charity shop to make aforementioned purchase for me!) - You can't see on the photo very well, but the dress is a really vibrant emerald green and white print with a lovely cerise sash. It cost just £4 and is 100% silk - Bargain!
Next is this lovely Aynsley posy ornament which mum found when she was sorting out my Grandmas things, and she knew I would like it, and also this lovely china posy brooch, also a gift from my mum
Finally, I know so many of you are a fan of hand embroidery, so I thought I would show you this gorgeous bolster cushion which my mum made for me a month or two ago, she has even embroidered a lovely personal message on the reverse. Isn't it pretty? It sits on my bed at the moment and I get pleasure every time I look at it.
Well, that's about it from me for the time being, the training for the half marathon is still going well and I am running about 5 miles at a time now roughly 3 or 4 times a week, I can feel myself getting fitter and that is motivating me to keep on, even though sometimes when I get in from work, running 5 miles is the last thing I want to do!
See you all again soon, and in the meantime cross your fingers for some sunshine!
