I'm not ready for the weekend to end tonight. I need more time. Some days more than others.
I have a lovely crafternoon with Curlypops. She came over for a crochet lesson, coffee and chatter. I wasn't feeling particularly crafty so don't have anything to show for myself except this. There's been a little bit of other crafting going on around here too. I joined in a Cupcake and Tea Swap over at Rachel Rabbit and my goodies are almost ready to go. My swap is for Molly Cupcakes who said she likes pink, pink and pink. I think I got it covered.
Then there's this little number which is going to be a gift for my friend's daughter. I think it's pretty cute.
I'm ready for a challenge beyond the simple tote now. Perhaps a pocket or a bag with a more interesting shape. First, shopping trip to Spotlight for some solid coloured fabrics to go with all the lovely prints that Curlypops has given me.
I'm definitely in need of a full day of crafting and sewing. In fact I'm probably in need of a few of them. I'm not very good at taking time out like that. It's something I want to practice over the next little while though. Booking time for myself and treating it like any other commitment. I had a date with myself recently and took myself out for shopping and dinner. It was wonderful. It's great to spend time alone. Now I need to learn how to do it at home.
Anyway, I finished off the evening with a little bit of cooking. Ms L made a roast last night so tonight I made lamb and mushroom pie with the left overs.
