Bits and Pieces

Last week was definitely one of "those weeks" in our house.  It was a week of anticipation and expectation which, combined with a general feeling of being under the weather, wasn't conducive to much productivity.  What I did try, ended up going wrong, so I was undoing much of what I did.
 
In the end, it was worth it.  On Saturday, myself and Number 1 son were on the train down to Bristol to pick up a car!  You can't believe how much difference it makes to be mobile again after four and a half years!  Monday was spent ferrying the boys to and from college.  After working out it took up three hours of the day, they are back to getting the bus, there is a limit to this taxi service!
 
Anyway, now that's settled, I can get back to a routine.  First, here is the round up of the few bits and pieces that did get done.
Another crumb block to add to the collection,

four more granny blocks for my blanket,

and the white work is mounted onto a canvas.  I like the texture of this canvas, it has a linen look to it.
 
All being well, the brain will be back in gear this week, and I can catch up on a few more loose ends.

You were still able to accomplish a lot even though you had the taxi service going! So nice to have a car to take you where you may need or want to go. I love the way that you mounted the arch. Really just lovely.
