It was a lovely walk around the lake on Monday - warm sunshine and pretty views of ducks, fountains and blackboy trees. It was very quiet and serene and the puppies frolicked along trying to chase the ducks.
I think I have given the wrong impression to some folks - this lake is not on our property - we are definitely in suburbia. However, we are lucky to have this lovely lake just a very short walk from our front door.
Yesterday I had my first attempt at making delightful little pincushions that I first saw on Chookyblue's blog. Now, Donna is busy doing the Secret Santa Swap and I happened across the pincushions on Darlene's blog and she kindly steered me towards a tutorial, thanks Darlene. These girls have great blogs, so do visit! I am reasonably happy with the outcome - not perfect, but cute - and easy to make - a lot of fun!
I'm still confined to quarters with the flu, so it will be a quiet week for me - not at all to my liking!
