Just had a look when I last posted and it's about 10 days ago!! Where did they go??
I've struggled for a few of those days with this darn muscle I keep pulling in my lower back, or is it rheumatism, or just a big ache when I actually do more than just sit sewing or crafting or watching the 'box'??? Whichever, it pulls me down and stops me sleeping at night. Away with you, nasty pain!
So, what have I actually managed to do. Well there was this
Crafting?? Not done much. I did manage to change the colour of one of my toes however!!!
I finished my bench seat pads by the skin of my teeth - deadline was 21 March, I finished the last one on the 20th after getting my machine back from the machine doctors following its minor breakdown the Monday before.
My friend was still in hospital up to Monday this week. I haven't heard any more so just hope she can go home again soon. Thank you for the good wishes for her. They will mean a lot to her.

At Christmas I bought a lovely wreath for my front door. It doesn't actually 'say' CHRISTMAS like so many at that time of year, so instead of binning it after twelfth night, I left it up for the winter.
I made the decision to have a wreath on the door all through the year, after all, why not?
Yesterday I kept myself amused by making one for Spring, although it may become one of two or three until Summer arrives.

A week into March and I've only just managed to make my tag. I am usually that excited to see each month's tags that I jump straight in and have a go. However, I have been so busy sewing and running around here there and everywhere, today was my first opportunity. But, boy! have I enjoyed this one. Who would have thought that embossing powder on top of masking paste would turn out so spectacularly. I love that technique. Tim for another beautiful tag.
