It's been a good Wednesday

We don't do it too early,
what with all those birthdays.
But secret Santa waits for no man and here is my gift.
My recipient is a wonderful lady who always thinks of others before herself.
I was thrilled to pick her out, and knowing her quite well I knew exactly what she would love.

Just a simple
jolly scarf.

Needed a nice fringy thing on the ends.

Lovely Japanese flower pattern. After much searching
 I found this one

I used a lovely soft 4ply yarn
Patons Fairytale dreamtime pure wool.

In soft sweetie pink colours.
Let me tell you.
She was thrilled with her secret Santa gift
and she guessed it was from me. LOL!
There is nothing more lovely than making something for a person you care about and knowing you've given them a little bit of love and a little bit of you.
What a lovely day.

Today was also great because,
I sold a cushion!
On Folksy
I sold my first cushion!
Very exciting, 
well I'm excited anyway.

Hope your Wednesday was great.

I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.

I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!

Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥
