Where has the week gone??!!

I can't believe it's Friday tomorrow. It only seems 5 minutes ago I was posting about the children going off to my parents and now they are back and the week is almost over.

Monday was my one day of totally chilling - I only made one card. I caught up on some programmes and watched a film. It was really relaxing. Then Mark and I went to Pizza Express for a treat - it seemed odd without the children.

Tuesday I had a doctors appointment which I wasn't looking forward to. I've been waiting for the results of some tests I have had recently. I've had some serious joint pain in my shoulders and hips since July and have been living off painkillers for a while now. The tests were to check for auto-immune disorders like Rheumatoid Arthritis. The upshot is that they don't know what is causing the pain so I'm being referred to a Rheumatologist. Deep joy - more tests! Anyway, to take my mind off my health worries, I got on with Emily's Tinkerbell dress.

It started life like this :

And ended up looking like this!!

I'm so pleased with how it turned out (not bad without a pattern!), and I think Emily looks beautiful. She is absolutely thrilled with it, so I'm very happy.
Yesterday and today have been busy days - the children returning, haircuts, new glasses for me, shopping, pumpkin buying etc etc. I've got lots of things still to do - craft things for my two Christmas Craft shows, baking etc, but somehow I don't think I'm going to get it all done. Mark has been on holiday today and is off again tomorrow. He wants to go out tomorrow to a National Trust property, so I'm not sure what is going to happen yet. We will have to wait and see.
Take care. M x


  1. One word - wow! I wouldn't know where to start with something like that, well done you!

  2. Sorry to hear that you have been in pain recently. It must be such a horrible feeling that dampens everything. Glad you got to have a nice chilled out week though! Watching tv and films for a day can really unwind a person!!!!!!

    The Tinkerbell dress is brilliant...and without a pattern? Blimey, I am completely impressed! I really need to get my machine out and do more....just too much to pack in and the days are so short!

    Have a wonderful weekend!
