The past two days seem to have flown by. Sunday was spent entertaining Connor and Elisha for a few hours and then we were also joined by Logan - it was lovely to have all three grandchildren together and something that doesn't happen that often. I did manage to capture a few photos of them all playing with the Thomas train track which hopefully I will get round to creating a LO at the weekend when I go to the Exeter crop. Once the invasion of grandchildren had passed I was able to enjoy a blissful couple of hours stitching - I've made a start on the birth sampler and will work on that one along with my next UFO which I have decided will be the Four Horses of Apocolypse and small stitched pieces too. I'll take a photo of the WIP's and post later in the week.
I am about a third of the way through my knitting project and so far all is going to plan - just hope the finished article looks the same in real life as it does in my head!
An early start yesterday for work but I was able to spend a pleasant afternoon with my friend Jacqueline who made me the most delicious baguettes for lunch followed later in the afternoon with a lemon curd yum yum and it was - very! That's where I was able to colour in the reindeer images and in the evening I put the assembly process into action.
Today so far has been spent taking the dog for a lovely walk along the creek and enjoying seeing the tree and flowers showing more signs that Spring has arrived.
On the way back home I called in to see my in-laws, had a nice cup of coffee and a chat. It was then time to pick my mum up and we took a trip to the local garden centre where we enjoyed lunch and then bought a few plants to go in the garden - hopefully they will survive and won't become a meal for the slugs. This was then followed by the not so thrilling food shopping. With that done and out the way I am now back home and I'm going to enjoy an hours stitching before DH comes home. After tea I will put my plants in and with any luck get some more crafting time later in the evening.
My work schedule is set to become less frantic - that is providing the new staff stay on - fingers crossed they will pick up speed soon and become more integrated with the rest of the team as it really would be nice to get back to my part time hours. We will see.
