There's been a bit too much of this lately:
and so Threadnoodle is giving up added sugar for Lent...two days in, and we're doing OK. I can get round the knotty problem of what to feed the cake-monsters at the weekend, by making fruit cake as it's not really my "bag", I'm more a lemon drizzle/apple&almond cake/anything with icing kinda gal!
So to take my mind off the deprivation, there's been a little bit of creating:
And I mean little, this tiny book is only 5cm square! It was a little exercise to have a go at stitching a spine and making a "proper" book, and it worked! It's filled with random papers that were littering my desk, and covered with a picture I cut out of a newsletter at the weekend.
(I've finished my bag as well, and road-tested it today with a trip to the library. Photos next time, if I remember - it's too busy being used to stand around for photos!).
NB I'm not alone in my Lenten deprivation: the Girl has given up Nutella, and Mr Gonecycling has given up beer&crisps.
The dog, unfortunately, hasn't given up being stupid. Here he is finding all the sunny spots:
and here is a particularly favourite spot, between the armchair and radiator - just right for a narrow dog!
he just stands there for hours, looking vacant....
