Self Portrait Tuesday

I seem to have created a running theme, this is a picture of me and my other nan in her back garden, she was also an amazing woman, unfortunately she died when I was six but I have so many memories that we must have done a lot.

Teddy and me Posted by Picasa

She was the one who taught me to crochet and first let me loose with a needle and thread, she also introduced me to plaster of paris and eating peas fresh from the pod. She saw me through chicken pox when I was sent to her house so my younger brother and sister didn't catch it and she used to make me my very own picnics to eat in the front room on a blanket when it was wet outside. I think to sum it up I am a very lucky person to have had two great women in my life.
Oh and the teddy bear, also an important part of my history, pooh lived at my nans house and I spent many happy hours sitting and playing with him, he shared many picnics, and his waist coat I still rememder my nan making for him it also has teddy bears on it).

The good news is that I have had a good nights sleep so feeling a lot more positive mood today and got quite a bit done including a bit of frogging (you'd be proud of me Dawn I was very ruthless) a kit woumd and a couple packed up, some inspiration threads done and four hanks of handspun drying after having their twists set and I even managed to get home before everyone else and get in the kitchen and cooked myself a decent dinner:)
