Happiness is ........

......Reading all your lovely comments about my wreath. So glad you like it :0)

......Having a day out with my Mum on Wednesday ( and getting the best weather of a pretty dreadful week)
It was very cold but the sun shone,after 2 days of solid rain, so we decided to go somewhere pretty.

Staunton Harold has a lovely craft centre and tea rooms set in an old stable yarn ...

Looks warm but you will notice no one is sat on those metal chairs, Brrrrrrrrrr !!

The Autumn light was fantastic........

....Going to bed early yesterday to watch telly and sew in the last ends on my blanket, such bliss after a hectic day at work ......

.......Waking up to no work today and making a start on my border Yay, yay ,yay.......

.....Going shopping and picking up a half price tin of chocs for Christmas, and remembering what inspired the colours in my round cushion :0)

Thank you for so much the kind comments about this cushion on my "splash of colour" post.I made this pre blog and didn't write a pattern , but there is a lovely, similar, pattern here .

What's bringing you happiness today ?

  2. sewing in bed with a nice mug of tea is always the nicest way to end a hectic day :)

  3. Your happy colors in your blanket and cushion started me off well ;)
    I had a lovely day with my mom yesterday--spent looking at pretty sparkly things and buying gifts :)

  4. I love the blue on the edging! Hard not to feel happy with all those lovely moments. :)

  5. Hi Jacquie! I loved your wreath so much that I had to make one of my own! And I love it! Thank you for the inspiration! As for the border on your gorgeous blanket...stunning! This blanket is going to be spectacular! Are you excited? I can't wait to see it. Loads of love, Amanda xxx

  6. Wow, your crochet is amazing, jealous isn't even the word. What brings me happiness today is the fact that it is friday and I get time over the weekend to do some art.

  7. Your blanket is looking great! Can't wait to see it finished.
    Hope you have a great weekend.

  8. Love how clear and sunny your day was. I cannot believe you have nearly completed your blanket! That did not take long at all. I am in the process of making what seems like a trillion scarves and hats. My poor blanket is getting no love at all :(
    I am so excited to see your blanket xxx

  9. Jacquie Im loving that blue against the white, its so stunning, really sets the other colours off a treat! And I also love the inspiration for your round, the sweetie tin colours are grand - what a good idea to use that!
    Lovely photos too, really enjoyed your post, I think you've inspired me to dig out my hook again...

    Love Julia x x x

  10. Oh it's great to see that the blanket is at the border stage. I love working with my crafts and when I complete something I am always pleased with myself but a little sad that it's over. Enjoy your weekend.

  17. Oooo yum, I've heard about Quality Street and how good those are. That's a fabulous tin!!

    Hahah, they actually make me think of this Monty Python sketch about a dubious chocolate manufacturer's "Whizzo Quality Assortment", featuring flavors such as Crunchy Frog...
