You don’t want to know how many times i have thought about this post over the last couple of days and every time it was titled March.
I cannot believe April has gone.
This month i finished 7 books.
The ones on the previous post and yesterday i finished this.
This is your life by Susie Martin.
77p / kindle.
I enjoyed this one and immediately went to see if she’d written more but couldn’t find any.
This was exactly the kind of story i like. A big life change with the right mix of believeable characters and romance.
In crafting i think i have been abit slow this month.
I have finished 1 sock and started sock 2 of the pattern small capitals that i started on new years eve.
I have knitted abit more on the green jumper but i am not feeling the love so much. Maybe its because its getting warmer.
I have made some pyjama bottoms from a beautiful fleecy sheet.
I love these they are so comfy.
I liked them so much i made some trousers from the same pattern just seaming up the sides.
I haven’t been brave enough yet to wear them in public.
I also attempted knickers. no photo of me wearing these.
These are great, made from old t shirts. They fit so well and look better than my old baggy, holey pairs. I just need to get some thinner elastic for the legs and i can make some more.
Quilting i have started again,
Simple 5″ squares are always satisfying when the urge to just sew is strong.
Today i backed it and basted ready for quilting.
I also cut out some more squares.
These are also 5″ and will hopefully become a baby quilt for a friends daughters baby.
We don’t know this friend well and i’ve never met her daughter but i am happy to quilt and they have to go somewhere.
Tonight Boy10 came home from school with the news he is baking tomorrow and needs an apron.
Mum to the rescue!
A few measurements and 20 minutes later we had this.
He is pleased and i am pleased.
Not bad i don’t suppose for April.
I am having alot of ideas at the moment from reading different blogs so i may be back soon to share some changes.
Tomorrow i am having a no internet day. I am turning the wifi off on the tablet and mp3 player. I am alliwing myself to access twitter and fb on my phone but thats it. As my phone is a blackberry, not touch screen any other internet useage is hard work. I am hoping this will keep me from blog reading for the day as i can lose hours there.
Its just a 24 hour personal experiment.
Thanks for reading.
