Everything will be alright in the end, and if it's not alright....

....... well it's not the end :)

This is just one of many brilliant lines in the film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

which Steve and I watched over the holidays.

And the quote has fast become our own personal mantra.

So it is Monday again.

I determined this morning to keep busy and happy and that is what I have done.

Three loads of laundry done
One of Steve's suit cleaned, dried and ironed
 An hour's ironing done
Bed linen changed
Supper prepped and now I am making.......

draught excluders!

The rose one is almost done and then I shall recover this Christmas cushion.

It has to be done by hand as my sewing machine is on strike:)

But an hour or two in front of the fire quietly sewing whilst watching a good drama or a film won't be a hardship!

Hope you are well.


  1. By hand!!! Wow, I'm impressed, Lynn! I always am amazed at how wonderfully even stitches were sewn by hand before the days of a sewing machine. Have a blessed, Monday!

  2. I find hand stitching really soothing, but I have such a restless nature that when I sit and stitch I always feel like I should be getting on with something else.........housework sure seems to have a hold over me.

    Well done you, on a very busy productive morning Lynn. x

  3. hello lynn,
    great film......
    love your draught excluders......great job(by hand).you are a very busy lady!!!
    have a nice monday evening,
    love regina

  4. My hands will no longer do hand sewing, well not neatly anyway. I loved that film, cant wait for the one about retired opera singers.

  5. I LOVE that movie! I was just thinking about it yesterday because I have watched it three times.
    You are very industrious, sweet Lynn!

  6. So enjoyed that movie! Love the draught excluder.
