This weekend






there was some sewing, a new pencil case for the little one.  Pattern found here.
there was some card making one for the boys and one for a princess loving girl.
homemade apple crumble and ice cream for dessert made by the big girl.
some movie watching on the laptop, Footloose.  I love the original version much more.
and a bit of sewing for me which I will share with you later in the week.

I just wanted to let you know that my Dad is ok and so am I.  This weekend I've been tired and a bit snappy which isn't nice  but it seems to be how I have been feeling and I am trying hard to stop that negative behaviour.  Today is a new day and I'm feeling more refreshed and ready for the week ahead.  My Dad is at home and slowly recovering.  I am looking at the positive that he is here with us; he is feeling better, better than he has in a long time and he is strong.  Thank you again for your wise and kind words they have helped me greatly get through this past week and I am forever grateful for them.

  6. Glad you and your Father are doing better. I love your pencil case and cards. Beautiful as always. And, like Louba says - everyone has grouchy days. At least you have a reason - some mornings I just wake up plain grumpy and can't even pinpoint why I feel that way:)

  7. Oh Sweetheart. I am so pleased to hear your Dad is feeling better and hope things stay positive for him. Snappiness is only normal when you're under such immense stress. I *get* where you're at. Sending you a huge Hobart ♥ tonight. J x

  12. I love your masculine cards. They are the ones that always stump me. You make them so simple and not over the top at all.

    I am so glad your Dad is home. It is such a hard time for you all. It is ok to snap. I snapped this weekend and then cried and felt guilty explaining to the kids that I was just worried. They ran around for the next hour tidying and helping so earnestly that it doubled the guilt.

    One day at a time,

    Thinking of you,
    Gina

    Love the masculine card - I always find them so difficult. We had apple crumble recently too, yum!

  14. Don't feel bad about being snappy, I'm sure those around you understand and it is only normal considering what you've been going through. I'm so glad your Dad is home and doing okay. Staying positive is so very important now xx

  15. To this day I have never seen Footloose! Considering I am a bit of an 80s fan and husband was a fairly significant DJ in Sydney in the 80s I probably should rent it out or download it or something! Good news about your Dad! Thinking of you! xx
