Rest, Relaxation and Sundays

I love Sunday nights! 
I love closing the shop at 5pm (4pm in the depths of winter), walking the dog, chatting with Gav and then retiring to the living room with nice food. TV, a glass (or two) of wine and looking forward to a fab day off tomorrow. 

Despite our holiday being spoilt last week, we did manage to relax for the last few days at home. We didn't open the shop until Saturday and then it was only half a day today before a day off. tomorrow  There's something so nice about working for yourself, i never get that "Ugh" feeling about going back to work or what's commonly known as that "Monday morning feeling"!  He he!

So... tomorrow we're off up to Denbighshire to look at carpets.  We're ready to swap some rooms over and need an "Art Deco" carpet, should be fun finding something suitable, then maybe a nice lunch out and a visit to Hobbycraft for some supplies.

These are some brooches i made last week from felt and fabric and a few watercolours!
Some more colours waiting to be done
I love this card and brooch, i bought them from the Zani Lady's Wearhouse in Ludlow and they're by the fabulous Viv Sliwka of Hens Teeth Art.....have a look at her blog she creates such gorgeous things.  This brooch looks gorgeous on my lovely new coat.

I had a "treat" day in Ludlow and got this necklace too, very difficult as there were so many pretty colours to choose from.

All my love to Annie and M, thinking of you
