Here in the UK we celebrated Mothering Sunday yesterday, I hope all the UK mums had a wonderful day celebrating with those you hold dear. My thoughts were with those of you with angel mums and like me, angel children.
I had 2 beautiful cards...
and charms for my Pandora bracelet. The outer covering on these chocolates made me smile :-)
The usual SAL's got some attention last week...
Irish Garden now has all the outer borders filled in with symrna stitches. Back to the concentration of the filling in and all the quarter and half stitches next time.
Parlour stitching is still LHN Snow Bunnies, the border added this week so just the little bunnies to arrived to complete it.
A knitting finish - Isabelle's cardigan is made up. A trip into town to source some buttons the correct colour is needed.
More prem baby hats for the charity knitting. Pink ones this time and these make my total 18 so far.
This week will see the equinox and spring will be upon us. The Craftshare will be changing the winter hanging at the community centre for a bright and colourful spring one. I've knitted up a couple of little sheep to add to it.
I have also finished off the Spring stitching SAL over at Needlecraft Haven, but no showing of that till the end of the month.
A quiet moment was spent last week inside the cathedral in our city. I felt the need for some quiet contemplation time.
In the past I have often sat inside the cathedral and been the only person there. Not so recently, there are people from all over the world interested in it.
The statue of Richard III has been re-sited just outside ....
and the visitors centre is often bustling with visitors...
I'm sure you all know the reason why as next Sunday, March 22nd (also my sons 30th birthday) will see the bones of Richard III arrive back into the City ready for his re-interment. On Thursday 26th March a service will be held and the new tomb inside the cathedral will be revealed and the eyes of the world and the worlds media will be on our little St Martins church that has stood for so many years. DH's mum used to worship there as a child before it got cathedral status. I wonder if the atmosphere inside will be changed after Richard is placed there?
The book I've been reading this past couple of weeks was about a changed place. Granada in Spain and during 1936 how the army coup led by General Franco shatters the countrys peaceful world with the Spanish Civil war and the devastation to familes at that time and for many years later. A girl who lives through her dancing and what becomes of her. Another good read by Victoria Hislop.
Wishing you all a lovely week ahead with plenty of crafting time.
Love and blessings to you all
