Good News & 3 Finishes

First some good news after 3 months of no driving i am allowed to drive  because i have an automatic car and because its roomy inside and i can leave my moonboot on or take it off,yippee,plus also my physio guy Luke had me  walk a little bit with my moon boot off,yipee each week there is improvement.

I finished off some xmas decorations for a swap later in the year.

Thought for a change i would do some aqua ones.

I am loving this tear drop shape.

So 3 finishes for the swap.

And i back them with some Bonnie & Camille fabric.

We had our 3 grandsons come and stay Friday and Saturday and they went fishing with their grand father ,we so enjoyed them being here,not one fight or argument,lol

I made this yummy chickpea soup,it has so much flavour,recipe here.

Hope uour day is a good one.
Cheers Shez xx

  23. I am so happy you are able to drive again and that your ankle is getting better. And I bet you are gitty as well? Beautiful finishes my dear. Thank you for sharing your yummy recipe.

  24. So pleased... you have done well..... no stopping you now.... I love the decorations in the aqua... so pretty. How fun for the boys to all go fishing - they all look very serious about their manly business. I love that quote - use it so often!

  25. Love the decorations.. such a pretty shade of cotton. Thought the driving would happen as it's your left foot and that isn't needed for an auto. Still better to be safe. So glad that such progress is being made.

  26. I really love the colours you have chosen for your cute Christams decos. Woohooo! On the road again yey!
