The beautiful boy is safely and happily back at school with a lovely new teacher. Being the 'Birthday Boy' always makes for a good return!On the first day he was gone, I spent some time in my favourite Norwich coffee shop,
But I couldn't hide there all day so, eventually, I had to return to an empty and quiet house. How I hate the end of the holidays, I always feel a little bit of the blues.
So I decided to get busy doing what always cheers me up; sorting and tidying in the workroom. Nothing particularly constructive, no cutting or sewing, but just folding, sorting and enjoying my space. Reminding myself that there is a good side to having a bit of time for me.
I have plans for this basket of off-cuts and scraps. All sorts of treasures hide in there.
Great-granny's workbox needs attention!
These are looking a bit less tangled,
and these look so pretty in this vintage plastic basket, I haven't the heart to sort them into orderly rows.
I've also been having some fun on Flickr. I've joined a new group for some inspiration and have uploaded images of my own embroidery work to share.
This piece has one of my favourite buttons!
And so, quietly, slowly, the empty-ness is turning into busy-ness. All of a sudden 3.30 comes around and it's time to go and get my boy. So, no sewing being done, but time well spent and soon I shall be back in the pink!
Now I need to go and quickly make some biscuit dough so that this evening we can decorate Friday birthday treats for class. Will post pictures soon. The beautiful boy was given a wonderful new biscuit cutter as a birthday gift. Tomorrow will be baking day for the party this weekend. Thank-you for stopping by. t.x
