The positives


It is so important to focus on the positives in your life.  As it's too easy to see only what's gone wrong.  I always try to be half glass full and it certainly helps me to cope when things go a little haywire.  I always say to my hubby that we can't fix whats done and we just have to build a bridge and get over it.  I sound more and more like my gran every day - And that's a good thing.


This week I will be working on some more upcycled goodies for a handmade market I will be attending on Saturday.  It will be my first outing with my goodies so I hope people like them.


I am so passionate about re-using what we have and turning junk into something new again.  We live in such a disposable society that just keeps buying and disposing of the old.  This behavior cannot possibly go on forever.  


So in January I will begin a new journey of re-using, recycling and upcycling.  I will also begin a Certificate in Small Business Management in the process.  Whilst building a new business doing what I love.  


Like these little metal tubs.  They were at the thrift shop - Dirty, Old and Tired.

I added some shabby flowers made from an old shirt and cleaned them up.  They are now ready to be re-loved by someone.  I can just see some pretty make-up brushes standing in these.

It doesn't take much to make something pretty and useful to someone again.


On the sewing front things have been a little slow.  I have been nursing Harry a lot of the time as he is just so fragile but I have managed to finish 3 of Rosie's stitcheries and get them framed and hanging on the wall.


And I have started the next 3 in a bright cheery pastel thread


They will be framed in an old fashioned pink


And hung in my entrance foyer.  I love them so much !  

I'm off to a new specialist this morning who will hopefully agree to do a procedure on my neck to lessen some of the pain in that area.  Wish me luck.

Hugs,

Fee xx
