Reasons to be cheerful!

It's Thursday, and I'm linking up with Planet Penny with my ..............

Reasons to be Cheerful!

I am in my element at the moment with my crochet projects, more WIPs than you could shake a stick at! Friends of ours had a baby a couple of days ago and I am busy making a blanket (my favorite past time!), the promise of another baby due in a month so an instant excuse to make another blanket! Christmas presents, snowflakes..........endless crochet...............

Anyway, avoiding all the crochet excitement, here are three reasons that I am cheerful.

Beautiful flowers from my Mum

My oldest son's class assembly this morning, he makes me soooo proud!

Learning new skills.....this one is almost ready for paint and glitter!

So there you have it........hope you have lots of Reasons to be Cheerful too...... if you do, why not join in with yours on Planet Penny's blog.....or if you need some more cheer in your life, go read others reasons for being cheerful, I'm sure it will put a smile on your face!


  1. I have serious crochet envy because I'm desperate to get back to it but must keep needlefelting until I've done my craft market! I LOVE that reindeer, soo clever! Hope to see him here when he's all sparkly!
    Thanks for joining in and spreading a little happiness! x

  2. Sound like your crochet heaven is good enough reason to be cheerful!!!
    Seeing my boys in their assemblies always brings a tear to my eye, it makes you remember how grown-up they are getting!!
    Your reindeer looks great, can't wait to see how you finish it.

  3. I just love new babies in the family, so cuddly and that new baby smell ahhhhh bliss :)
    Can't wait to see your blankets for them, lots of things for the to do list.
    Love the flowers, and how wonderful to see the assebly, they sure know how to make their mammas proud don't they !
    Oh wow to the new skill, I love any reason to use glue and glitter ;-)

    I'm buried in Christmas crochet too, and loving it. Slippers are the big project this year.

    Beautiful flowers! I don't know which boy is yours, but I especially like the one on the left who is singing his heart out.
