Its been a madcap week with lots going on as usual but shamefully not much in the hooky department. I seem to be getting bored with all the things I’ve had in the draw and so I find myself with lots of works in progress.. fun though.
Its not something I normally do but because of things that are going on with Alex at the moment, I will be the first to admit that I’ve been more than restless and Moody!!!!! Poor Richard.
So, I’ve made a point and actually went out and bought my gorgeous husband some flowers and chocolate.. he actually appreciated them too.
Besides that, thought I’d make some treats for all those lovely people who have been right here besides me too. Lenna (Lengirl) came around, so I cooked some welsh cakes, Greek filo pastry chicken & ham pies, pasties and then complained when we went shopping to find that clothes were too tight!!! Ermmm I wonder why???
So, I’ve decided that I although all this comfort eating occasionally has to be done there must come a time to get into my jeans again without cutting off the circulation to my brain!!!
So… whilst Alex is away I’ve been looking at having a go at making patterns which involve a little more concentration and counting. As you can imagine with “little big man” on the scene you have to keep your wits about you at time and it best to stick with motifs with repeat stitches.
Now, as this post is dedicated to the one I love, I said that I would make something for Richard and him only. What did he say he wanted… Parsley The Lion, from The Herbs!!!!!!!!!!! Yes you’ve read it right. How many of you remember The Herbs? hahahahha
So I took myself on to Raverly and got a nice little lion pattern.. made his head brown and his body green as parsley but do you think I can figure out the pattern for the mane!!! No way.. so at the moment Parsley is a Cub till I grow into the pattern.. if I post the link on here would one of you please take the time to have a look and see if you could explain it to me.. PLEEEASEEEEE!!!!!! linked here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/pretoria-lion-toy
In the meantime here is little cute piccy of Parsley the Cub!!
Wishing you all a happy rest of the week … lots of love and hugs to you all.
Helen, Richard, Alex and Parsley!!!!!!!!!!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxx
