Cold, windy, sleety, then sunny windy and sleety, back to cold windy and sleety... that sums up today. Impossible to do anything outside and to top of the day I am into the 4th day od the dreaded flu. So what to do on a day like this!!
First up some nourishment - the easiest way to do this is a pot of chicken and vegie soup!
Chicken, fresh vegies, dried soup mix - I feel better just smelling it simmering away on the stove!

What to do now. My ever so slow clean up and sort out uncovered my two favourite sewing boxes which in turn uncovered several works in progress. So today just might be filled with getting them out and doing a bit more on each of them whilst sitting in front of the heater! Mind you when I say works in progress they have been on the go for about 4 years. I get bored if I only have one thing to do, and they have been forgotten for the last 12 months!

The big square one was a christmas gift from my husband which was a change from the usual gift card! and the little blue round one was from a beautiful friend who is no longer with us.

Both sewing boxes revealed a treasure trove of works ...

ahhh that is where the crinoline ladies have been hiding...

Did I say about 4 years in the making... these cows have been out to pasture for longer than that!!!

And this wool embroidered cot blanket too!
Now to work out which one I am going to do some more on today. The weekend is actually looking a little brighter now - a crafty weekend for me is something I haven't done in a long time
, always too busy making for our market stalls!!
Hope the weather is better where you are, if not I hope you are planning something fulfilling and fun inside.
