The swimming pool across the road


As I have just moved houses , I have discovered that just across the street to my new house , there is that lovely swimming pool, and I have decided that I deserve at least an hour a week There : I love it , I dont really swim , I enjoy the waterfalls and the massages , and so I go there at the opening , sometimes I am the only one there, THAT is very relaxing too ...

Sewing

This is an advent calendar that I made for my first granson , a few years ago , with 24 different felt socks , and now every year , I have to find the different surprise gifts that go inside :) I have already started thinking about it for this year ... There's 3 of them now , and they seem to like it and expect it every year .... See the lovely little hand trying to reach for it ????




This is a little lavender doll stuffed with lavender from my garden ... I make them for friends ...

embroidery

If you double click , it will enlarge , so you can see I used different stitches . The oval one is a much smaller piece ....
I have started a huge one which I was supposed to finish next year ... I am ashamed to say I haven't done a 10th of it ... But it is small stitch ... I was crazy to even start it while I am still working ... I should have waited till I was retired ... Because I feel guilty to have it lying there ...

Boxes

On this one , I did some embroidery ; so this will be another of my hobbies ....
The two small ones are tea bags boxes ....


I like doing things with small or big boxes , just for fun ... Or for using them for storing things....
