Little boots.

As I said in my last post, I found a little time for crafting. As promised, I made the second bootee and also a tiny pair of mittens to match.
I just need to get some ribbon for the mittens. Aren't they so cute? Tony is fascinated by the tiny boots, he can't resist having a play each time he sees them. LOL
I've been hunting hard for a job, as some of you have observed, it's really not a good time, but it's only been a few weeks, something will pop up. I'm trying to remain focused and positive. It's not so easy to stay positive at my own work just now though, my enthusiasm is wearing thin.
Thank you for all the comments and encouragement about my new hair do. I'll keep on practising with the straighteners, though I have found that washing, a quick comb and abandonment works well. ;-)
I've been doing a little walking, in between the summer down pours! They seem to have dried up at the moment and we've had a little sun. Look at the pretty flowers I spotted.
This gorgeous rose caught my eye. Sorry the pictures are not up to much, I'm still using my phone. This sweet pea was a little further along my path.
Just beautiful. As well as walking I've been swimming, in fact I'm off to the pool today. I love swimming but haven't been for ages, time to get back into the habit. I had to purchase a larger swim suit though. :-(
Time to go, take care.

The right job WILL come along, but, as you say, it's difficult to keep motivated in your current one while you're waiting. The flowers are lovely and make going for a walk a real pleasure at this time of year don't they?

I can understand the fascination with the little boots,my boys do the same. Keep looking, you never know, when you least expect it, something will turn up. Hope it's soon

It's hard waiting to find a job so hope something comes along soon. What is the problem with the crochet - is it a problem I can help with, or do you just need motivating?

Thanks for sharing photos of your walk. I missed seeing what interesting things you saw on your wanders. Enjoy your swimming.

Baby things are great to make as you get a finished result very quickly and you feel as if you have achieved something. Good luck with the job hunting...Cheers!
