What a mixed week weather wise - we've had everything from hot sunshine to hail and a thunder storm too. On Sunday night it was very windy and the huge climbing rose at the side of the house took a battering. One branch was hanging in front of the window and as it was full of flowers I had to rescue it;
The flowers are just the most gorgeous pink and have been such a delight to look at and watch open as the week has gone on.
My pile of little hooky squares has grown and when it reached 9 it was time to sew them all together. However they weren't going to be quite big enough to make the cushion front I wanted so I've started to crochet around the outside - another 2 rows to go I think. I did do some at last night S&B session but I think I pulled it out a few times - nattering and not concentrating made for some 'interesting' stitches! At least crochet is easier to pull out and put right!!
Hopefully this evening I can add the other rows - should be quiet here. Big son will be 'revising' ie listening to music/playing minecraft and chatting on Facebook - amazing multi-tasking skills that one!! Little son & MrVV will be at band practise - another weekend of engagements for both of them looms. One at little sons school fete on Saturday (I've a craft stall there) and another on Aldeburgh beach on Sunday - here's hoping for decent weather for both events.
As well as crocheting and all the boring domestic stuff, I've spent time this week finishing a few makes for the weekend and doing some light reading. I had time to kill one afternoon this week between appointments so I called into the library - some lightweight Aga-sagas for me :) Oh and the postie finally brought me my copy of MollieMakes 2 - I am just loving this magazine.
I am really hoping to get some serious blog reading in tonight too - I am behind with that (again)- sorry.
Just to let the 2 birthday swap ladies who have birthdays this week know - your parcels are in the post - again I am rather disorganised at the moment - hopefully they'll arrive on time.
See you soon
