Say hello to Elmo.. he’s part of my fortnightly craft group to make toys for the children’s cancer ward at Christmas… now my toy making skills are not as brilliant as my “flat work” crochet so I suggested that I wanted to make Muppet Range.. That way if they looked “freaky” it would only add to the charm of the project! A cheat I know.. but all the family as well as those who have met Elmo in person are totally in love with him…. next on my knitting needles is a Clanger!!
As you know I’ve been working on Doodly Bird Lynn’s bunting over that few weeks and really enjoying it too. I’m not going to show you any of the work yet as I’d like to make a feature of my buntings and the new techniques I’ve learned for another blog.
So, if you work hard you have to play hard right?
My day off was today and although it was a late start this morning, Richard and I drove across to Western Super Mare..
Western Super Mud as we’ used to call it as kids, is the birth place of that nice man Jeffrey Archer: author, politician and convicted perjurer, as well as John Cleese and Richie Blackmore ( Deep Purple) for those of you are old Rock chicks!
The sun was out, there were lots of happy smiling faces and the sea was the typical brown slop of the Bristol Channel.. but it was a great day out and I just had to share it with you all.
Here’s how we made the most of our new found “our time” which is a much happier place for us in the knowledge of Alex thoroughly enjoying his day at the Centre.
Heavens above… a blue sky!
Sun On Sea & Flat Holm Island
Yes, its a Purple Concrete Donkey!
Someone left behind from the weekend’s Hen Night I think!
Have a great week, full of happiness, smiles and lots of love xxxxxxxxxx
