How did my morning start, a cup of tea and my next book in the Outlander series, I am a complete nightmare once I get my nose in a book! Especially a good book.
A busy day at work was had on Saturday as things start and ramp up to the festive season.
Yesterday a few jobs under my belt I decided to start a couple of new crochet projects.
Every year at this time I make a limited supply of poppies for Remembrance day next month. Now I know some people make them and profit from them, I couldn't do that being x-forces. I provide my time and all the stash required at my own cost and all the money that is donated for them goes to The British Legion.
I think with the background both myself and my hubby have it is ingrained early on in your career that it is a charity to be supported. Put it this way if you didn't display a poppy on your uniform at this time of year you were in trouble. Some things just "stick" for all the right reasons!
I haven't decided how many I am making this year but I set to yesterday designing this years effort.
It is very similar to some designs on the web but has been adjusted slightly for my own benefit.
Having placed my work in progress on my Facebook page with a note, leaf or no leaf. the overwhelming response was with leaf with immediately orders for four. Thanks ladies!
Now I suppose I need to get cracking and make more and then I think a wee box to put it in may also be required.
I hope you had a good weekend?
Did you enjoy some you time or some crafting? I hope so.
That's all from me today, back tomorrow with some more craftiness.
