Sorry to offload here but I need to do something as it's going round and round in my head, I'm so angry and hurt. This week is the 2nd most hardest week of the year with regards my Mum's death, I've finally been to the doctors this week to sort out my anxiety/depression so I don't need it anymore from him. Doesn't he realise? Actually, no, he's never realised where I'm concerned. Never was that precious to him.
Started the penguins.

My MIL was sorting through her stash of magazines and asked if I wanted to look at them first. So here's a years worth of Country Homes and Interiors from 1998! I'm hoping to find some different inspiration in them.
Last, but by no means least (and the reason for my tired, tired person), are my charity shop bargains. My sister and I spent an hour browsing the 2 in my local town and I came home with a few things - buttons (of course), an embroidery hoop, pure wool (for penguins), tape measure, press studs, and a straw bag for carrying wool projects.
There were a couple of other things too, one being a must have book for me, no the kids, oh alright me, on Ivor the Engine (blushing). I'm sure this is the reason I love trains .... right, that's enough confessions, I'm off to bed.

And from the postie today, from another lovely mama who make it herself, was this wonderful bracelet (which is a birthday present for someone) and and this gorgeous picture for me from her lovely daughter. It's amazing how nice people are even though we've never met, so thank you so much Claire and Phoebe.
And lastly is a book, The Children's Year. I've heard so much about it, and seen many things made from it, so I thought I would get it. I know, I know, spending again.....but it is an investment isn't it ;-).

This afternoon I've been looking for small cotton labels so I can stitch them onto the fabric items that I make. The ones I went for are here. I have to say that price was a factor in my decision as I would have prefered some organic cotton ones but they would have had to have from the US at $350/1000 plus postage. Anyway, we shall see what they look like when they arrive.

I have fallen down on my buying nothing this month (how many blogs do you read that say that ;-) ), although I am definitely blaming Claire for this. She mentioned Moo cards to me so I thought I'd go and have a look - 15 mins later I've uploaded 14 photos, edited them and paid for them........mmm, never mind eh - next month maybe?
