you can all go to the beach to let the breeze from the indian ocean cool and calm your spirit..
and it did work too.
of course while father and son [son is on the surfboard in deep contemplation] cooled off in the sea i played hooky..
with a bottle of fizzy water ..factor 30+..and under a huge beach umbrella i crocheted my little heart out...bliss...bliss...bliss..

my beautiful friend ..danielle.. gave me a gift at work the other day..i was a little taken a back at the time ..i know how much time and effort and not forgetting ..THE LOVE.. that went into this creation.
the enormatiy of it did not hit me until i got home and i did shed one or two tears when i looked at it again..
they were tears of joy that this wonderful person has come into my life and adds so much to it.
i thank u and treasure the gifts u have given to me ..you have a heart as big as tassie..
i am truly priviliged to have u in my life both on the creative and on the friendship side..
thank u danielle...

especially when we have had a new delivery..
when i went to work [check out debs new blog ..calicoandivy.blogspot.com ] yesterday the new kaffe fassett collective had just arrived and i snaffled a couple of fabrics...shell melange by phillip jacobs and a couple of the most contempary circles in the most amazing colors..
then as i was doing a bit of searching thru my cath kidston i had to put some colors together to make these dear little yoyo's..
oh ! and before i shoot off the new heather bailey felt rolls are a must have ..
