Hello...... I'm struggling to keep up with the blogging at the moment, but here are last weeks 'Three Things'
Is this beautiful Camellia, the plant is covered with blooms this year, which makes me very happy it's very close to my heart as my Dad planted it, so I always think of him when I see it's beautiful flowers. Last year it did not flower, perhaps because of the cold winter, but it sure has made up for that this Spring.
All the mandala madness in blogland at the moment, reminded me of the wonderful doilies we have that my Great Nan made.
Just look at the work in this one it astounds me how fine the cotton she crocheted with was. I never got to meet my Great Nan as she had passed away before I was born, so it lovely we have some of her wonderful crochet.
This is my favourite of her Doilies it's just so pretty
What a talent lady she must have been.
Now this is a big happy, I've finally succumbed and bought a sewing machine, I blame the 'Sewing Bee' and being it a bit of a weaken state due to feeling pretty grotty and fed up as I have yet another virus. So the maths is easy really. ME/Lyme relapse + Antiviral side effect + cold + hay fever + Special offer price = Sewing Machine cheer up treat for Clare.
I just need to find the energy to figure out how to use it. I did have a little play on Saturday just to make sure it was working OK.
So now I need to find some easy sewing patterns as I'm a complete beginner to this sewing malarkey, leave a comment if you have any easy pattern or book recommendations.
Well that about it, it's pretty hectic here at the moment with so much to prepare for Easter I just need to find some energy from somewhere.
