Flaming June ,a cut thru and some crochet..

we continue to look for somewhere new to live,my mum is back in hospital, and I have just sent off alexs PIP benefit form to be processed and Emma's uni finance is in the last stages of being processed,so hopefully fingers crossed with all that.My blood pressure is still high and have been diagnosed with sinus infection and have spent the weekend feeling somewhat rough, but did some packing up,sorted out the toy room,and packed stuff,and went to see my fabulous Scam 69 punk  band.
sports day...

some of my scrappygan I have started...
week two of My wedding cut thru...did some of the rainbow this
week..I am enjoying stitching but my eyes arent so good now, as can only stitch for a small amount at a time.
These flowers continue to cause me headache.Been busy joining them.
So onwards for another week of uncertainty and madness,Alex has his leavers assembly and then it will be no more Dycourts school.College in september.What a long summer he is going to have. eeek!

Back to cross stitch and yarnbombing

The weather has been lovely since the start of the month of June and I have been busy creating.
The library's in my part of Essex have been yarn bombed,here are some pictures of it.Most of it were done by the Knit and Natter groups.It has made me smile to see the work, it certainly has brightened up the landscape.

wedding cut thru, I have done part of the church steeple and rainbow.

my cut thru picture when it is finished (what it will look like..)
I am back stitching again,thanks to my eye drop improving my glaucoma.I am stitching on my 'Wedding Cut Thru 'picture by Bothy threads, I am so pleased to be stitching again.I had forgotten how relaxing and satisfying it is.This is the progress after a few days ..
I have been making lots of crocheted flowers but more about them another time..I have made over 200..
me in my kind of poncho shawl... i crocheted,

We are still looking for a new home.Meanwhile I have just a handful of projects that I am working on when I get the chance,

here is a glimpse of some work in progress....not showing much as want it to be a surprise.
Meanwhile the chaos, that is my life goes on....I have applied for some government benefit to help support m and my boy Alex. I still have a few others to apply for ..fingers crossed...
I have the PIP form for boy Alex as he is now 16 they have sent me this enormous form and i shall be completing it Saturday when I have no distractions.
My good ole mum is out of hospital and home with dad so we popped over to see them on Sunday,she is much better for being back  in her familiar surroundings.And gasp I can breathe a little more easily now she is out of immediate danger.
We went to a fun day on Saturday (boy Alex and I)and had some BBQ ,there's nothing like a burger and a bun in the sunshine with good friends to cheer you up.
He took me to see the movie Malificent it was quite a good film, with Angelina Jolie in , it is a Disney film, quite long,two hours, but for a film aimed at children s(rated PG)it was nice to escape into a bit of fantasy.malificent movie trailer on utube.
So the hunt for somewhere to live goes on...keep creating and sending me positive moving vibes ....meanwhile a new look to the blog,just click on the top to view it the nicest way possible, classic is good and so is magazine....
