We have had wonderful sunshine for the last couple of days and it has been warm enough at times to sit outside and feel the sun on my face, admire the blue skies and watch the daffodils dancing in the breeze.  I have hung out washing and brought it in dry instead of the house smelling like a laundry.  There is something so lovely about clothes dried outside in the sunshine.

I have been crocheting and knitting away....simple things that don't tax my brain...easy to complete and soothing to create.  Things that have given me a real boost and make me smile every time I look at them.  Little gems of happy colour and design.

This teapot will be a leaving present for a very dear friend who is moving away.  I couldn't seem to a get a decent picture because of the strong light but you get the idea.

 A couple of these will be a birthday present for another friend...I think so anyway...but not sure that I can bear to part with them.....I love them so much.....oh bother!

And these little pots make me smile over and over.....just double crochet stitches round and round and soothing to make and so gorgeous when finished.

Things are a little calmer here now I have got used to the idea that my job has disappeared.  There are very limited possibilities within the company...another application is pending...fingers fact, what the heck, cross everything!!

Very pretty - love all your makes :)

I've just finished a new jar cover - fancied a blue/white cornishware style one :) Looks lovely against the daffs.

Although I recognise the teacosy as from Crochet with Raymond and the jars from Attic 24, could you tell me where the hangers are from?

Dear Devina,

You've been busy, indeed! I love the soft colours you use. I, too, have a hard time parting with something I've made; it's like a baby almost. :)

Here's crossing our fingers along with you, for something even better.

I LOVE everything. I want a tea cosy! Maybe in the future when you have time I could commission you to mske one for me?
Right, so sorry about emails. I have meant to sort out the probs with spam for a while now. I was alarmed by what you had been sent, no idea what it was, so have deleted my yahoo account and will set up somewhere else and keep my address private. I am so sorry and hope it will not cause problems with yours. Thanks for telling me too.

Hope you are ok and all is ticketty boo otherwise. xxx
