Hello all, hope you have all had a wonderful weekend.
I was going to dedicate this week to finishing my bunting, but have had to put this on hold as the LYS has run out of the green cotton.
I know I should have used the opportunity of having no projects on the go and caught up with other jobs, such as, finish painting the garden bench, digging the front garden, clean out the playhouse, re pot the tomato plants, clean the whole house, blah blah blah ........ but I had spotted a cute pattern in one of my Japanese crochet books, I definitely needed a new cardi more than the tomato's needed a bigger pot.
So whilst at knit and natter on Thursday I purchased 2 balls of King Cole Bamboo, in what I would call a mustard colour, I was a bit unsure of the colour at first but had seen something similar in a shop in town, so I went with it and I'm so glad I did as I love it now it's done.
I really wanted to wear this today, so with half an hour to go before we went out I sat in the garden and tidied up all the ends, and sewed the button on whilst the kids were putting on their shoes and I'm pleased to say I made it in time and got to wear my new cardi, yippee !!
I've mentioned in previous posts about my love and addiction to home magazines, such as Country living, Ideal home.....and how I'm supposed to be cutting down , I had been managing quite well, and when ever I felt myself being drawn to them in the supermarket, I thought about what I could be buying in the wool shop instead with the money saved. Today though I will admit to buying the latest issue of Ideal Home, as it had a feature on log cabins and summer houses, so you can see I really needed it to help with the planning of my log cabin, which is still not here as we (Scott) haven't managed to finish clearing the space in the garden yet. Whilst flicking through and looking at all the lovely pictures, I found this .......
..... a crocheted garden chair, I love it and want it. Unfortunately its beyond my price range ( £200, HomeSense ) and my crocheting capabilities, so I will keep telling myself that its probably really uncomfortable, yeah right !.
