I am suffering from a dreadful case of CBA at the moment, brought on by (I suspect) a very long and stressfull half term. However, today is the first day of a week's holiday and what better way to celebrate than with a garland? Other than a bottle of red wine, that is.
Yes, it's those remnants of air-dry clay, cut into little hearts with a small biscuit cutter and threaded onto 10mm gingham ribbon. I made the holes with a chopstick, making sure not to have them too big so the ribbon wouldn't have to be knotted, it just keeps them in place as it is.
It's so flaming cold here you wouldn't believe it (said Victor Meldrew style), yesterday there was a hint of snow in the air, just odd bits but all the same... It does mean though that all the scarves are out, and the boots. So it's not all bad, but I won't be saying that when the gas bill comes I'm sure.
I have 101 jobs and projects lined up for the week. In fact I've over-faced myself and don't know where to start, so I haven't. One involves putting in an ornamental fire surround, I got it on ebay and it was a mega-bargain. Then there's painting it (after the wall and skirting have been repaired), painting the sideboard and six chairs, all the craft I have planned...oh dear.
