Finally finished my gift to myself, cross eyed by the end of the beading strip but am pleased with the finished results. The fabric is a mock suede and the picture an eagle, made in the messenger style gives me lots of room when going to exhibitions etc.
Finished the Melody Wrap and again am pleased with the finished article, the colours are perfect for a summer evening or to dress up evening attire.
Went to a knitting exhibition on Saturday, bit disappointed as not many stalls, so could not part with the money I had in my pocket, wanting to get out. Did buy some sari tape yarn, which I will knit into belts with beads and a bag of bits and bobs to put through the embellisher machine. Will post the results when finished.
Have got to get a wriggle on this week, to finish the Mothering Sunday gift and card samples and my newsletter for March. Then starting on Easter goodies.

Having finally got rid of that white stuff, the sun came out so off we went for a trip down the coast to Emsworth, a small fishing village in Hampshire.
After a quick breakfast, Barney (the dog) decided that he was not going to be left behind, so took DH's shoes out of the hall cupboard, marched through the living room to his boudoir, to ensure that he had to be taken along with the shoes!!!
Had a lovely coffee and danish with a walk around the harbour, Barney was not impressed with the swans or ducks as they were being fed and not him. snuck in a pic of DH (Lee) and Barney, Lee is a bit shy of his photo being broadcast across the net!
Just to prove I have been working, of sorts, made a fabric printed stationery wallet with notelets, paper, envelopes and a bookmark. The print and main fabric comes from a Victorain CD Rom by Joanna Sheen of copyright free images etc. Her CD's are brilliant.

We have a white out in the South, even London is affected with many routes closed. According to the Weather people the South have not had this for 13 years. Good job we don't have to go out in this, staying home, snug as a bug. Keep safe everyone.
