Hurray for Friday !!

It's been a busy week here in the BM household,which is not unusual.
I've had very little craft time ,mostly due to my three little people needing a fancy dress outfit each for school today.
I was feeling the pressure on Wednesday and Thursday evening ,but the smiles in the playground this morning made up for it !

I do enjoy my Fridays anyway,and having that problem sorted makes it seem even nicer.
The sun has been shining here this morning and I finally managed to get to my favourite fitness class ,having missed several weeks due mostly to a lack of motivation !!
It makes me feel so much better, I don't know why I let it slip ?

One good thing about having to make the children's outfits is it necessitated a visit into the loft to retrieve a hat.
While I was there I finally managed to rescue my old Lloyd loom chair .So after some fitness and the weekly shop I rushed home to photograph it for you.......

Its now taking pride of place in my bedroom and I think my square throw looks so pretty draped over the back Lucy style!!

It's currently teamed up with my ripple cushion which I made about this time last year ,as I still haven't finished my Emma Lamb style cushion.

Also looking pretty in this corner is my new dress,it says River Island on the label...but I must admit I got it for a bargain price in a local charity shop.
It's funny 'cos when I was in my twenties and thirties I really disliked charity shops.I thought they were a bit sad and smelt funny .But now I'm in my forties I love finding nice things ,and helping a good cause.I suppose it's guilt free shopping...very little expense and recycling too !

It's much prettier in real life,with a ruffled hem and sparkly I'm enjoying admiring it hung on my mirror....shame about the coat hanger.
Luckily blog land has had some super crochet coat hanger inspiration this week here and here so I'm off to find my hook !!!!
Have a super weekend
