Felting Workshop

Well another week has flown past. Don't seem to have completed many more bears, should start completing the eight bears and one elephant sitting on my table.
Our sewing group get together this month was a felting workshop in Somerset West. Had a wonderful time 'tho it was cold and wet (still some winter weather around). Made a cream bag with tiny purple flowers, wish I had had more time to repeat the flowers on the front base of the bag but here it is still with lots of work to be done. Think it looks quite good and a little different. Have got the felting bug again, really enjoy
working with wool fibres, amazing how you can create something from a hank of wool.

Still no movement in the house sale, agent is nagging again to bring down the price. On reading the newspaper today it seems that house prices are down but have stabilised somewhat as the bond interest rate was not increased this month. Not much help to us, houses in this area do not seem to sell well and it is becoming a problem as we need to get moving.

Well have to get work done but here is a picture of the jasmine in full flower. It is obviousl
y very happy in the back courtyard, just warm enough and plenty of sunshine.

My thought for the day

"Life might be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!"

Here's hoping for a great week.
