MY LOVE IS LIKE A RED, RED ROSE
THAT'S NEWLY SPRUNG IN JUNE.
MY LOVE IS LIKE A MELODY
SO SWEETLY PLAYED IN TUNE.
(Listen to a gorgeous version here)
Howdy! Another balmy, tropical day dawns in sunny Wiltshire! What? Aren't you bathing in temperatures of 80C?? Well, I am.... only when the fire's lit, lolol!! It's blooming freezing outside...our Easter Eggs will all be frozen at this rate...sigh....
Lots to see today:
*I'm piecing out some patchwork bits to make another knitting needle case
*I bought some more fat quarters.....but they were in the sale box, honest!
* My hare knitting bag is on the table. I don't know why....did I bring it up to
do something? Sigh.........
* I see my scissors sharpener is still out. I took it to school to sort out the teachers' scissors and haven't put it away yet. Tsk Tsk.
*I sewed the big spotty buttons onto a length of petersham for the WOYWW crop raffle. They look quite funky!
They might not actually make it on to the raffle table...cough..... :)
Here's a closer look at the fat quarters. Now this is a complete departure for me. I just don't do the chintzy look.....but these fabrics just 'spoke' to me across the crowded store. I'm getting soppy in my old age. I don't even know what I'm going to do with them....summat will happen one day...*grin*
Loads of you commented on the hares last week....I really do have a thing about them and consequently, I get a lot of hare related stuff as prezzies! This useful canvas tote holds my current knitting projects and was a gift from my lovely teacher friend Sue.
And here's my current knitting!! I'm going to make a blanket from squares made with left over yarns and 'odds'...you know, those single balls you find lurking in the bargain bins. It's only garter stitch but is great for something to do brainlessly while watching the telly. Hang on, doing things brainlessly is pretty much the story of my life at the moment!! Why change a good thing?!
Have a good week :)
