Yay its Wednesday! And I am feeling 100% healthy, compared to last week!
I still working on my mums crochet granny square blanket, I have 19 squares completed and will need 100 in total. My cat shadow gives them the paws up, no matter where I move them to in the living room, he finds them! And what with mums 16 cats, I don’t think she will get a look in!
I have done no knitting for two weeks! Yes two whole weeks, and I am having serous withdrawal symptoms, so I am going to cast on another caponcho.
‘What Another caponcho?’ hear you all cry!! The first one I made got ‘claimed’ by my little sister, and the second was for my daughter! But I really want one for me! My friend lee gave me loads of yummy nameless navy blue/purple black, depending on which light you see it in though its alot darker then the pictures and looks almost black, and I think it would be perfect, because I could use the caponcho in the evenings it could be my ‘ little black dress’ shawl
I also went to a car boot on Sunday, and brought loads of buttons and lace..and a few other vintage gems click here if you want to know what i brought
|The clear ones are glass, i got quite a few big and small.|
I am really itching to make some dolls clothes! so the sewing machine will get some love this weekend!
I also received my second typewriter yesterday which does black and red ink! Isn’t she beautiful *swoon*
My friend lee gave me LOADs of paper craft supplies, so I am going to have a play at making some cards.
i am not the only one working hard this week! *sorry but soo cute! had to share*
In the garden we have more strawberries, and budding pumpkins, my yellow patio tomatoes have started growing fruit!
My sunflowers are getting bigger every day! My potato plants are huge, and my cucumbers are ready to be potted in bigger pots, my lettuce and kitchen herbs are growing nicely.
I love waking up in the morning and having a look to see what’s changed overnight, I am off to the garden centre this afternoon to see if I can get my hands on a few plants I need for yarn dyeing and cooking.
Speaking of cooking, my friend lee (there’s a pattern here isn’t there lol) lent me a few books with some lovely recipes.
I really want to have ago at some of these, lavender mayo sounds interesting and I have loads of old English rose’s in my garden for the rosé meats and pumpkin damper sounds soo yummy!
Have a great week! :) i am going to head off to Tamis to have a peek at what everyone else is up too!
i will be back later with day 8 of 30 photo Fun!
