Still snowy.

Getting just a little bit bored of the snow now.  It's always lovely when it's fresh, when you look out of the window and get that little kid "Oh it's snowed!" feeling.  But after a few days it just looks messy and untidy, and its difficult even to pop out in the garden for something.  Which means I'm afraid that today's photos have been taken indoors, or from the kitchen door.  Nice sunrise yesterday though,
All right, maybe I've played around a little bit with that one.  Be lovely if skies were really that colour. 
This one is completely uneditted by me, but I think the camera does something clever when you put it on the 'sunset' setting

Still, I've got more than enough to occupy myself indoors, so I'm not complaining.  Apart from all the sorting and clearing out, I've made a couple of these -

and which fold down to this -

I first saw them here at the Knitting and Stitching Show, so I made a couple in this slightly tacky leopardskin nylon-y fabric (it was given to me, I didn't buy it!)  I think I'll refer to them as my "Bet Lynch Shoppers".  I think it's now time for a new ironing board cover though. 

I've had a lovely new one for ages (it's got pink hearts on) but I've been saving it for best. 
Oh no, it's snowing again. (I'm never going to get my room decorated)

PS  - My friend Jill told me I HAD to buy the Waitrose Food magazine this month.  I had completely forgotten why, because as you know, I'm not very experimental in the kitchen.  I just went to make myself a cuppa, and picked up the magazine, and started flicking through.

Now I remember why I had to buy it.

Great hair, nice cars, a fabulous house in Yorkshire, AND cooks puddings.  What more could you want?


  1. I'm with you on that one!

    Love your touched up sunset, also the picture of the little cakes on the side and the picture of the girls at the top!

    Just an idea ...maybe we should do a heart swap some time?

    Have a lovely weekend
    Carolyn ♥

  2. I didn't think I'd ever met someone who saved ironingboard covers for best, how wrong I was.

  3. Thank you for leaving a comment. As I only need to colour two buttons, I didnt resort to the disperse dyes this time. But Thank yoy!

  4. Oh yeah, I forgot the Strictly thing. do you think there's a possibility he has a thing for older women? Poor lad, I wonder if his ears are burning? x
