Looking for missing weeks...

I think they did a runner.

I traced them in France with my family over Christmas, and then in the Italian Alps. The rest of the time, they mostly kept a low profile...

Plotting

Today I have mostly failed, and one cannot finish the week on a fail.

So as I write this in my PJs - which I have worn all day, something I have only ever done a handful of times, scoffing the only junk food I can get my hands on without leaving the house - hot chocolate powder straight out of the jar, something I have done many times before, I feel already a whole lot better knowing that at least I will have caught up with you.

I did have another treat today, a treat for me anyway.
Yesterday I took Jack the dog to the beach after my post office run. It was beautifully still, not a foot print in the sand and a flat calm sea.
Needless to say, we didn't leave the place as found with Jack tearing around the place.

I went to my secret spot to collect some winkles (it's the Breton in me). Of course, there is no need for it to be a secret. Let's face it, I must be the only one around collecting the little sea snails, but a secret it shall remain for my pleasure only :)
So today, before the chocolate straight out of the jar thing, I had every single last one of them :)

Other than today's fail, I have been busy sewing lately. Since a lovely lady from Illinois asked me if I did medium size hoops, I have started making 6" hoops as well as my usual 8" and 4". Perfect if you want a little cluster of hoops, or with other frames.
I had a little reshuffle of my shop shelves to accommodate the new small, medium and large hoops.

Also made this custom messenger bag.

Do tell me if you find those missing weeks!

PS: I will be away the whole of next week. The land of the Scots is calling :)
My shops will remain open as I will be checking in daily, however the shipping date will be Tuesday 8th Feb. If you want me to post something before I go, be quick, you have until 2pm tomorrow (Saturday 29th Jan - UK time).
