Blimey the end of the week already. I hope everyone is ok after all the awful weather we've had this week? I was quite glad to have a few days indoors. Thanks for all the comments on my last post.
(1) I'm feeling much better - better than I have for months tbh.
(2) I've emailed CK and they are 'looking for some matching yarn' for me. I hope I hear something soon - certainly not what you'd expect from a company as high profile as that.
Well today has been a good one - the weather has been gorgeous - sunny and quite warm. I decided to do something I've not done for over 4 months - I walked into town and back - all by myself! It felt rather strange to start with not having someone there but I soon got used to it. It was lovely to have a wander and a good look about without being hurried up. Sadly the charity shops turned up nothing at all - lots of unloved christmas pressies lurking on the shelves and a distinct lack of pretty china and vintage wares. My favourite little shop opens again on Monday so I'm hopeful they might have some nice things for me to browse through.
Back to the hooking - I spent most of yesterday evening sitting at the computer, hook in one hand and best concentrating face on (yes the one with the tongue sticking out). I was looking at lots of the tutorials on Lucy's lovely blog. I thought it high time I progressed from granny squares to other sorts of crochet. Well here's the first 2 results;
One crochet jar jacket - just using random odds of yarn from my basket. I treated myself to the daffs when I was out today - sort of reward for my myself.
The first of what hopefully will be many Teeny Tiny Hearts - I picture strings of these all over the house.
My haul from town today - new yarn so I can start on some makes for the craft fair and for forthcoming birthdays, bobble trim to make feet for the owl in the first picture and a new magazine for those need to put my feet up moments.
Whilst I'm typing I'm waiting for another new project to set. I treated myself to some candle making supplies and have just made the first 2 - one for me and another for a pressie. I'll let you see the finished results next time - they now look like they are starting to set.
Have a lovely weekend, whatever you are doing. I'm hoping we'll get out and about as the forecast is promising. MrVV has also promised to give my bike an overhaul - I'm back to physio on Monday and I'm hoping to be given the green light to start gently cycling again.
Until next time
