About looking forward, reading, creating…

This has been a year of settling in.
We’ve been here for over 4 years and after a three week holiday with you we came home and it didn’t feel like a home. So we decided to do something about it.

Originally this was a temporary base until we bought our own place. We made do and put up with a lot and it finally wasn’t working.

My 'new' antique hat box for the wool for my current project

So out with the old and not so old and in with the new and comfortable.
Pictures are on the walls, crockery has been replaced, a new sofa arrives this week, and our new bed is bloody marvellous! Its meant spending money on ‘things’ – but a little comfort and ‘homeliness’  has been worth it.

Its also been a year of reading good books from favourite authors I haven’t read in years

The top one will be on its way to you soon!

and re reading books I've loved.

With so many unfinished projects upstairs you’d think I would start on one of them… But no! That’s not my way at all.

I’m creating a blanket for ’67 Blankets for Madiba Day’ http://johannesburg.sapeople.com/2014/02/24/sharp-sticks-lot-balls-afraid/ doing something for someone else and hoping it then gets me back to the pile upstairs…

And of course looking forward to Spring through the eyes of these two little fella’s.

While here, spring peaks out from behind a very mild, wet winter, I hope you’re enjoying the last of your summer heat! Bye for now…
