BE WARNED...

... it has been a while.. so there are A LOT of pictures to come .. so get a brew and settle back xx I have NO excuse for not posting .. I just didn't!! lol x

We had snow most of yesterday and over night... thankfully this morning it is warmer and it is going ..



... mind you there is MORE forecast for to-night and tomorrow!

SO the tea pot and cosy are in constant use ..


 the slow cooker is bubbling away..


GOOD time to catch up x

My arm is slowly improving and the physio continues .. so much so that I have my slave/child worker back to visit..



she is getting REALLY good at the washing up !

I did my session at Sandbach ... the ladies seemed to be happy x I didn't get any Booos anyway! lol x
My block was broken dishes.. 



so I made a couple of cushions..


 then I needed a bag to carry them in ..



and then a bag for the granddaughter..



 a table runner always goes down well...


As you can see ....I had lots of suggestions of ways to use the block....!! NOW I have all the demonstration/Blue Peter pieces over so I have to decide what to do with them ...


thinking cap on xx 

I finished the BIG shawl..




.....and a smaller one while waiting for mum to finish her latest round of treatments..




then a hat for my daughter ..



she has A LOT of hair so it needed to be big to cover it all x THEN she wanted a hat for the grandson that was like a dinosaur !!!! THIS is what I came up with ...





the stuffed toy was my best way to show it off!! lol x

Well done if you got this far xx I am off now for another cuppa x 

Have a warm and productive day x

Diane xx

Love the dinosaur hat, very cute!! Your shawls are beautiful too, perfect activity for sitting waiting at the hospital. Your slave/grandchild is very cute and a great helper!! Sounds like you have had a very cold winter over there, wish I could send over some of our hot weather for you. You have been super productive with the broken dishes blocks, y I u have made great things.

Our shared grandchild (Diane's daughter is my son's partner) will love the dinosaur helmet Diane and living in a cold winter area in Australia, he will get great use of it. Love all your new bibs and bobs. I'm looking forward to cooler times here so I can wear the lovely scarf you sent me. I love it.

I was very happy to receive a well written card from your Mum last week. Very newsy and so glad she is going OK. I'll send her a postcard from here so she can see what it is like. I look forward to seeing you all next year. xxx
