This retirement lark is a very strange one...
It's been three weeks now and the holiday mode is fading. This is it - sort of. I have enjoyed having more time to stitch and knit and crochet and read, all the things I love but I feel quite guilty about it. I know it's stupid - I worked enough years to deserve a bit of me-time, but "guilty" must be my default feeling. The babysitting still takes a couple of days out of my busy "Me" schedule, however, and poor Mr C is battling bravely with having me trampling all over his own "Me" time.
These are my most recent makes.
A jazzy little cushion to use up scraps of fabric
The start of a rustic French table setting. I intend to make more, such as a bread bag and candle holders. Mr C is a huge Eurovision fan (yes, I know, I know!) and we have a family party every year with a different country's theme. This year it's France so it's a French dinner party. He's already thinking about trying out his Bouillabaisse and Tarte Tatin!
Much love to you all xxx
