A few good things

Life can be frantic sometimes and This last week has left me feeling rather squeezed from all angles, wrung out is how I feel this Saturday morning. Despite this, I cannot imagine a week going buy without seeing the beauty, the beauty of my world and what helps me through the messy stuff. So, here are a few of my good things to remind me that I can cope with whatever comes my way.


Pretties growing in our little space

Pretties growing in our little space

Alice and all her rehearsals for her show

A new exhibition on at the De la Warr Pavilion

Enjoying cups of tea by the sea in the sunshine, oh the glorious sunny shine I do love you so

And a spot of baking brownies with my girl

Making more pretties

Admiring Alice's wrapping a little box to gve a ring to her friend for her 13th birthday

And last but not least admiring some beautiful colour and pattern

I hope you have been able to see and experience a few good things too? Here's wishing you all a wonderful weekend, I am off to my very first needle felting workshop this afternoon which I hope to share with you

  3. I thought life would get calmer but it just gets more frantic doesn't it. Glad you have a way of calming. Looking at all the good is the best way. I took both girls individually to an art exhibition by local artists in our forum space this week. Killing time waiting for the other to finish matches basically. They loved it as such a variety of styles, the best was a fuzzy felt picture priced at £950. It made us roar and did what it should got us talking about what was art. Enjoy your afternoon with the needles Penny. X

  4. Now there are lots of things to smile at! Blue skies, art, brownies....sounds pretty perfect....its always good when you just catch that moment to reflect on the lovely things, even in a fraught week. Love the shawl on your last post too, great colours in the yarn, I've just finished a shawl with some yarn my hubby brought back from his hollies in Fish Hoek, its in blues and turquoise, very pretty, he even came back with a shawl pattern too, aren't I lucky! Hope you enjoyed your needle felting, look forward to seeing your creations.x

  7. It is so lovely to see just how much you have managed to find time to enjoy. It is so easy when we are busy to rush past these simple, yet beautiful things so credit to you for trying to stay grounded and observe these beauties. There was definitely no shortage of beauty in your week and what a very pretty job Alice did with her wrapping, I am sure there was a very proud mama moment! I hope this is a better week for you my dear and I also hope that your little parcel is winging its way to you as we speak. Sending you much love xoxo

  16. You are pretty amazing, Penny, if you can continue to see all that beauty and joy during such a hectic week. Isn't that blue sky gorgeous?

    I hope your needle felting was great fun and that you took the time to unwind a little. Here's to a new week, hopefully calmer than the previous one :-)
