I am sat inside listening to the wind howling outside. It's quite sunny, but very cold at the moment. The girls are desperate for summer, though and Martha insisted on wearing her sun hat and slightly thinner jacket to nursery today. I've been busy trying to write application forms for part time teaching jobs. I know I need to do it as there isn't an awful lot of supply work around, but the thought of being back in the treadmill is a bit daunting. I'm also thinking about starting up a business in a few months, but the thought of doing this as well as teaching fills me with dread (but I can't just start the business as I don't know if it will be successful).
Anyway, enough of my prattling, and onto my show for today. Over at Creative Craft, we are sponsored by Crafty Individuals, and our theme is just checking, so we would like to see a check pattern on your creations. I decided not to make a card and instead made a patchwork bag. Martha has been nagging me to make her a bag to put her ballet shoes in, so she chose the material (she likes blues and purples) and I made the bag. It's a simple patchwork design, but it's all I could manage with Martha sat on my knee helping!
See you later.
