Hello my lovely Angels,
thank you all so much for your well wishes on our anniversary. A good time was had by albeit Alex had a hidden agenda which he chose to reveal at the very last moment with a panic attack. He just DID NOT WANT TO GO OUT!
So… Thanks to all our family and guests who fitted in with conceding to a happy take away at home blessed with good company and more wine than you can imagine.
However, post hangover I have been working on getting Lynn’s blanket on the road. Just 86 grannies later this little fella is looking very much like a bedspread. I just love the colours in it and how it resembles lost gems hidden in the grass!
I have to admit, this project is rather dominating my house at the moment and here is the rest of the stash intended to get this little chap into King Size shape.
I’ve ensured that as I add each round, I sew in all the ends so as not to have the dreaded task to deal with right at the finish of the project. There really is nothing worse is there than having something finished on the one side but not on the other.. so discipline in place, I’m tidying up as I go and making sure those pesky loose ends are truly hidden and unravel proof.. although with every hand made there always a risk of an odd end popping its head up. Bit like a weed, and this little chap that comes along each morning to help himself to my bird table.
I adore squirrels and their cheeky ways and would never discourage them from popping in for a garden snack, although after reports of a little girl having contracted a nasty disease from picking one up, I wouldn’t attempt to shake hands with it.
So again, wanting to finish off on a positive note, I’d like to leave you with an image of a little anniversary prezzy with best wishes from my heart for a good week, good health and good weather to you all.
All my love Helen… xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
PS.. what goodies are your hooks at the moment???
