Feeling sorry for myself.......

It's been a miserable week full of sore throat, head cold and now I'm wheezing as if I was smoking 50 a day! I don't smoke but this cold, the first I've had in a long time has taken its toll....ah! poor me!







But I have been quite busy I have a new back door and a new kitchen window. the door might not be as pretty as the old one but it makes a difference to the temperatures....no draughts! and the kitchen window lets in a lot of light on a dingy side of the house so apart from the effort needed to move all the stuff around so that the builder could get on with the job, it was a job worth doing.






















And I spent a bit of time making these for my two American friends living here in the UK, I know they miss family at Thanksgiving so this was just a little bit of something from me.

Precious presents.......

  I got presents!! I was thrilled to get the pattern I won in Sandy's giveaway, can't wait to find some time and more importantly some space in my workroom to get on and make this little lovely up.















 And then my elderly neighbour gave me this beautiful doll that was hers when she was a little girl. She said I was the only person she knew who would appreciate her (and I surely do) and that her daughter wasn't at all interested in dolls. I know she is a German doll of about 1920, will do some research and let you know more soon.


And the school photo arrived of my little girl, growing up so fast now and that's scary

Decorating done!

Hands hurt, back aches but it is done! Alice can move into her new bedroom. She wanted new carpet and curtains but that will have to wait....don't have the funds with Christmas coming up and a new back door to pay for, now we have to move yet more stuff around. When will I get to do some sewing for me??

Beautiful lillies to help cheer me up from a dear friend, thankyou Donna.
