Good evening all and I hope that you've been having a good weekend? I have to confess that we haven't really done very much - packed christmas trees back in the loft, spent time cleaning bird feeders out in the garden (for which the birds - I'm assuming - were grateful, but as they empty them all so quickly I'm not sure they notice lol!) - and all the usual humdrum weekend jobs! But I did have a little visit to my local craft shop yesterday to inspire the mojo for the new year!
My youngest is back at school on Tuesday and oh boy is it going to be a shock to his system. He's been the typical 14 year old boy over the holidays, finally emerging from his pit around lunchtime (despite me hoovering, playing the radio, etc.!), grazing on all manner of foods for the day (in addition to meals) and then playing on his computer & xbox all evening! So sociable! At least I'm hoping that's typical teenage boy behaviour and it's not just my son! I can't believe how different boys are to girls - my daughter will happily sit with me with a cup of tea and chat, or go shopping. But Jack would be traumatised if I made him go to the supermarket with me! Hey ho.
Anyway, I just thought I'd share a little bit of cross stitch with you today. I made these little items just as a small gift for someone I work with
So hope you like them too!
