A Good Day

Ok, I have had a good day today. My daughter got into the college course she wanted. I have to admire her perseverance under seemingly impossible situations that keep throwing themselves in her path.

I started my Christmas shopping. I know its early but I have to pace myself or it becomes a horrible frenzy that ultimate ends up in buying the thing that `will have to do` at far more than you should have to pay for it. I am doing some handcrafting in the form of knitting. I cannot say what as the recipient may read this. I like a bit of clicking in the colder months in front of the telly.

Also listed two gift sets (so you guys can start your seasonal shopping-lol) which are a new design with matching wallets. I will make some more of these as I have a mini job lot of these handles. Check out the pics below. More in the shop.

Best of all, there is a glowing light in the sky and I have the patio doors open (no jumpers!!!!!!!!)

Well Maybe Not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, before I went on my hols to Egypt I posted `Summers Here`. It would seem, not so much.
I left 40 degree heat and came back to 15!!!!!!!!!!!!. Its rained virtually every day since I have been back. My six week work holiday is over bar a week and I haven't sewn a bloomin thing. I think all this cruddy rain is sapping my creative juices.
I was going to post some pictures of the garden but it just hasn't lived up to expectations this year. Every time I feed my beloved tropical beauties it rains after and washes it all away. Don't get me wrong- its not bad, its just not as good as I would like.
I have started a pictorial history of the gardens evolution on my flickr page for anyone who is interested. None of this year yet, but there will be later.

These are some custom orders I finished before I left for foreign climes. Well, I had to post some sewing didnt I?
