This weekend i took on of this unfinished blanket that was originally meant for Lauren, but since she persuaded me to give her the summer throw, i decided to have this one for me......
It never seemed to sit properly with the little squares around the edge, so i took them off & put them aside for later. have maybe sixty squares, that i will edge the finished blanket in, carefully this time though! Here s how it looks now..............
I've been adding rounds all weekend, tried one round of lilac with white bobbles but that Had to go it just looked real bad :S. So around & around i'll go until i have a blankie big enough for our bed, will go down well in winter, cosy soft & warm :)
This one suits my bedroom sooooo well as i like soft colors while i sleep & snooze. Its mainly done in these colors, here have a peek
Now that dressing table def needs a lick of paint & the wardrobes that i ain't gonna show are grossly orangey wood, will be white very soon. i should do a before & after of them :D. Oh boy the windowsill needs painting too as does the skirting boards, should really get stuck in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Little ornaments on the dresser are all from the girls, various mothers day gifts, & oh do i love gifts!
It does suit the bed though, doesn't it!! But i have to say crocheting with only two soft colors can be a wee bit boring......................... so this will most likely be done in between more interesting projects.
Got some lovely shots in my garden this weekend, we had some rain after quite a dry july soooo my flowers & plants just soaked it lovingly up, slurp, slurp mmmmm...... Aahhhhhh!
Got to pick my first ever cherry tomatoes, which i have to say gave me such a thrill, also have been enjoying fresh peas for a few weeks now :)
I tell you what though cooking with your owwn home grown produce feels sooooooooooo good!
It really is exciting & satisfying !!!!!!!!!!
Well on with the day, weathers pretty nice outside so i'm sure to sit out with a coffee soon as well as one or five choc bikkies :p heee heee!
Hope you all have a sweet day too, if you drop by do leave a comment, i love reading them & oh i need some advice, i do not know how to reply to comments, any tec advice would be great !!
Slan for now
Lots of love Karen Xxxxxxx
