I Heart You
Seeing as we are all currently living in interesting times, I think it’s wise to focus on positive things, kind things, good things.

Felix’s school run a variety of things throughout the year to raise money, some gets used for new school equipment and the bulk goes into paying towards school trips so parents don’t have to pay as much. As a kid, I didn’t get to go on many school trips as they were too expensive and my mother was doing as good as she could just to make sure we had dinner on the table.
Free pattern Hearts in a Hurry by Frankie Brown – I just braided some wool into the end to turn them into bookmarks.
When I was asked to knit a few contributions for mother Day gifts, I couldn’t refuse. They gave me the wool, and I knit, and knit, and knit quite a little bundle of gifts. I was working on these last week in Disneyland – note the much smaller heart coaster that I made after going on the Tower of Terror. Clearly fear induced adrenaline affects my guage!
Yesterday was the last day Felix’s school was open, as with all schools in the UK it was to be closed in a bid to slow down the coronavirus, but they were still able to sell the hearts and raise funds.
It’s been a very long, very odd and very stressful week, so i’m leaving today’s post there.
