Wintry warmers

Cool & drizzling rain here today...nice & cosy inside!
An early start...groceries & petrol...DS fast asleep after arriving home from school retreat.
Went to Scone with a friend looking to buy a birthday present.
On the way home she wanted a pumpkin at a roadside stall...the poor vendors must have been freezing!
I spotted one of my mothers favourites...GRAMMA! She lives in the city & you just can't get them there...rang Mum...yes please she said...so I nursed a hefty gramma the rest of the way home...will give it to her when I am there in a few days.
Also got some little minikins this week...might be nice stuffed & baked...mmm!
It's been a busy week...started my third casual job...by Friday I was pooped!

Still managing to continue stitching this...should have had it finished by now...we have had some creative differences that "blocked" me...some reverse sewing this week & I've got my enthusiasm back!
Looking forward to having a special visitor next weekend & celebrating DD's 21st birthday!
