Happiness and Freedom

I finished work on Friday. Yippee!! This means that I now have a week off before I start my new job at the Abbotsford Convent. I am so looking forward to it even though I am nervous too.

I have a little bit of work to do this week on a paid project that I am finishing up. Hopefully though there will be lots of time for crafting, blogging and catching up with myself. I have a couple of scarves I want to finish off for gifts in readiness for starting on my first large knitting project in a very long time.


How beautiful is it. My best friend bought the pattern from Woolly Thoughts on Etsy and we are both going to knit it. We have an outing planned on Friday to purchase wool and she even bought me some Lincraft vouchers for my birthday to put towards the wool.

Apart from those things I am going to do some reorganising of my craft room. It is a constant process of trying to maximise the space to accommodate the multitude of projects that I seem to have on the go and the assorted supplies I keep adding to the collection. I know that they will all come in handy at some point but I think I am rapidly reaching capacity. In fact, I may already be there.


My last desire for my week of freedom is to do some blogging. I feel like I haven't been visiting friends much at all lately and I want to catch up on everyone, and discover some new fav's. Maybe work out how to make a new banner for my blog and see what other tricks I can get up to. Here's to happiness and freedom wherever you can get them.

Hello. Thanks for visiting my blog. I like to hear that you like to creations. To be honest I must say that not all of them are mine. I have copied from books. But anyway, they look good, don't they?. I speak a little bit of english so if you need something just let me know. Regards from Spain. I will add you to my favourites.
