This week has felt busy, I've been making a lot (taking over the dining room in fact!) and we've definitely settled back into the school routine post-Christmas, with all the rushing around that this involves, but it's nice to overlook the tiredness and grumpiness (parents and children both!) and round up the week on a positive note.
Our littlest turned four on Sunday! A bittersweet moment perhaps, as with it comes the reminder that she'll be off to school come September, yet such a joy to watch them grow up and become more independent.

I've also rediscovered my stash of fabric this week, and I'm trying to put it to good use by getting a some bits and bobs made and photographed for some craft fair applications. My sewing machine has been dusted off - I'd completely forgotten how much I love sewing...
...making a cushion cover out of an old Clothkits kit and another out of some fabric that used to hang as a curtain in my Gran's utility room.
Hand stitching - I love the process and care involved, and the resulting neat (ish) rows of stitches are so pleasing.
Finding a "tidy hen" on one of the cushions.
Making a pin cushion out of some pink and yellow vintage sheet fabric - I love these colours together.
The result of all this productivity being a rather messy, but happy, desk full of yarn and fabric.
Last, but certainly not least, a four year old riding her brand new (old) bike... without stabilisers!
I hope you've had lots of positive moments in your week too - I'd love to hear about them...
I'm linking up with Penny's "Happy Friday" post over at Planet Penny, and looking forward to settling down with a cup of tea later and reading through the rest of the happy posts. Not a bad way to end the week I think!
