I've had truely the most awful couple of weeks at work ever. Nothing I do seems to be right at the moment, no matter how many hours I put in or what it is that I do somehow it just doesn't seem enough for my employer right now. I do count myself lucky to have a job in this tough economic climate and I try not to be too ungrateful but it has really been dragging me down the last couple of weeks.
Lucky for me I have lots of good friends and family to see me through. And also I have my fabulous blogging friends some of who have really brought me little pieces of happy over the last few days.
Over the weekend I was busy catching up on a little bit of blog reading (as usual I'd fallen a bit behind) I hopped on over to Celia's place and was really delighted to spy in the picture of her workspace a little cross stitch that I made and sent last year. I love making for other people and it made me silly happy to think of my little piece on display in Celia's home on the other side of the planet. Thanks for bringing me a smile, Celia.
Shortly after my visit to Celia's place I went for a little wander over to Wildwood. Imagine my delight when I read that I had inspired Janice to pick up crochet hook, what a thrill to know that the gorgeous pink granny squares that are being made over in wildwood came out of some of the nonsense I like to post here. Thank you for making me jump up off the sofa and do a little joyful jig Janice.
And last but by no means least a huge thank you to the lovely Kate who sent me not one but two new cross stitch charts to keep me busy. I don't have a picture right now as I've left my camera at home (I'm blogging from James' at the moment as I don't have an Internet connection at the new place yet), but I will starting one of the charts in the next couple of days so pictures to follow soon. How fabulous to get home from work to find such a lovely gift in the mail, thanks for making my Friday afternoon wonderful, Kate.
And just because I don't like to post without a picture. Here are a couple of other things that have been bringing me a little bit of happy. Beautiful spring daffodils, bringing a little bit of sunshine indoors
