Thanks so much for all your supportive comments about my "ickiness" yesterday. I realised this morning that I didn't get the time to write in my Gratitude Journal yesterday (I forgot to unplug the phone and was interrupted), and I do believe that may have contributed to my feeling odd about everything. I am fast learning that once you start being grateful, it is not something you should stop doing! Even if only for a day. It's a part of my daily routine now, every weekday morning, and it centres me for the rest of the day, even if I'm not consciously aware of it.
So, anyway... I have decided to learn to crochet. It was something I never mastered when I was younger, and I so want to be able to make little doilies and pretty edgings. I have a couple of books from the library and I picked up this leaflet from the op shop this afternoon...
As soon as I get some time, I will be head down, figuring out the intricacies of slipstitch, half treble and double treble!
I also found this great book with loads of bread recipes that I want to try - note the price, what a bargain!
And finally, I thought I would show you my very own, hand-drawn plan of what my new kitchen will look like. Hopefully in about 18 months or so - you can't rush these things *lol* (You will need to click on the pic to enlarge it.)
