So sorry I haven't been round and commented on anyone from last week, I really appreciated all of your lovely comments - but the week seems to have vanished somewhere!
This was my breakfast, I made a healthy fruit pancake stack and there is my favourite pint mug with fruit tea in it! This is for the benefit of the lovely folks who visit Elizabeth and Bleubeard's place on Tuesdays!
This was a late breakfast, it was so cold this morning that after I let Sooty out just before 7am we decided to go back to our nice warm bed again until 9am!
I evicted this lot from the bed this morning, Sooty always takes a toy up and if he thinks I should go up earlier he often takes two, one and comes back down then takes another. Winnie the Pooh is not a dog toy but came with him just over 11 years ago when we rescued him privately, and although he has had some repairs and is very tattered Sooty still loves him the best!
When I woke up again and checked my mobile I had a text from my son saying his washing machine had broken down could I do his washing (which was downstairs, so he came in while I was in bed and neither of us heard him).
I love this yarn, the colours are gorgeous! It was from PookGB on Etsy and it was calling to me so I dropped everything and made a lacy shawl.
This shawl is the Lizard shawl by Jasmin Räsänen, the pattern is free on Ravelry and it was in Russian with a chart which I hoped to try and figure out one day - then I found out that Jose Crochet had provided an English (US terms) translation, YAY! Here it is being blocked, and when it is dry I hope I can figure out how to wear it - not great with these non conventional shaped things! I also hope it will keep the shape it should and won't need blocking every time it is washed (but suspecting it might).
This is the Jennika mystery craft along, I restarted the first section when the first attempt didn't come out to the right size, everyone else is on section 4!
It was my Granddaughter's 1st birthday party on Sunday, she is 1 tomorrow, and this was her cake that she looks unimpressed by!
These are the amazing toilets in the Chinese Restaurant called Watersky in Bristol.
The weekend before last we visited Whitehall garden centre at Lacock, and it was like a Christmas grotto gone mad. Here are a few photos taken on the phone:
Trying the hats!
