Stitch, paint and run!

 The "springie blue" giveaway
that I did last week,
inspired me to make a new cushion out of
one of the fabrics...
(and it's in my Etsy shop).
 
 

And I made another one of my
line and lace
cushions.
Love doing these
cos you just make it up as you go:)
Bit of this,
bit of that...
 
 
In between gardening,
and stitching,
I've also been revamping some furniture,
from plain brown...
 
 
...to shabby white...
 
 
I think it looks lots better:)
 
You know that thing on the bucket list
that I was working on,
well,
I've done it:)
Yesterday I ran the Dunedin Half Marathon:)
Had a moment (or two)
where I wondered if I could do it,
or more accurately,
why I was doing it!!
But I did do it:)
And,
well,
there you go....
I'm still grinning about it today,
and I'm pretty sure that I will be doing it again...
next year.
I'm not a natural runner,
in fact,
I'm not the sporty type at all.
But it's been on my list for quite a while now,
for no other reason than that
I just wanted to prove something to myself.
So now I can put a ''tick'' beside that one,
relax for a few days,
 catch up on some stitching
and other crafty stuff
and
I think that I have earned
extra chocolate:)
See you later
Jenny:)
