Hello again! Sorry I've been awol for the week - one of the problems was that my camera batteries died and I kept forgetting to buy new ones. The other thing (which is definitely not a problem) is that I have been busily crafting on something secret so I can't share it with you yet - but here's a sneak peek
I loved making the psychedelic baby blanket so much that I carried on crocheting and made myself a scarf!
I think I will put a few more rows of brown round the edge to make it wider and warmer - that's what I love about crochet, you can "finish" it and then when you decide you want to add more you can!
I also finally finished a whole PAIR of mittens for myself!
On Monday I went to school wearing this "pair"
the one I knitted last winter and one from last month - they go fairly well together don't they????
Last week Dot went to stay with Granny and Grandpa Dog (my parents) because she had Thursday and Friday off school and I was working. So on Sunday we all went over to pick her up.
We had the most delicious roast lamb for lunch - roasts at mum and dad's are so fantastic that I never bother cooking them at home because I could never do them as well. The children ate loads but Daisy obviously still had a bit of room left at the end.............................
the main star of these pictures though, is the gorgeous jumper Mum has just finished for Daisy - it's beautiful!
Lots of people across the UK have had loads of snow over the last couple of days. We got a bit but then it all washed away last night which is very disappointing :o(
But look at our lovely weather tree
We should have started it last month but kept forgetting so we are going to do it from the beginning of February instead - as long as we don't forget again!
Hope you are all having a nice week!
P.S. One of my lovely friends has recently started blogging here. Helen lives on an idyllic farm near Durham runs fantastic craft workshops in her beautiful little studio which is full of lovely things I can't resist buying!!! She now has a webpage with a shop and a blog so do pop over to say hello if you get the chance - there are always lots of lovely things to see and Helen is fab!
