Taking it easy

I'm taking it easy this afternoon. I've got a bit of a weary feeling which I think might be from low iron (now that I can recognise the signs). So off to bed early with a good book, The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan in fact. I find I don't read a lot of non-fiction anymore. Cook books and gardening books dominate.
 

 I made a small tote bag recently to post off in a gift parcel. Now I'm moving on to making a picnic blanket/quilt for another friend and perhaps a table runner or two. That's a good thing about winter evenings. There is less daylight to spend working outdoors so some of those craft projects can take centre stage.


And just to show you how  things really are here. I turn my back to do some exercising and what happens to my water? I'm a little concerned about how many times this has happened in the past and I haven't known.

I thought as I saw the photo of the cat drinking 'isn't that cute' then read what you had written and thought maybe not. It is a very pretty looking cat though.

Yes - Dolly loves to drink out of a glass! Then I scrub them afterwards - be careful!

Ha! What a sweet photo! And what luck to capture that moment! :)

The bag is beautiful. I love patchwork, and the colors in this bag are so cheerful together.

That is a lovely tote bag Tracy. I mostly sew over the weekends. I find the light hard to work with at night.
