I managed to pick up a pale pink jumper from the charity shop and spent this morning sewing them together. Job well I done I feel.
I have been meaning to have a go at Lucy's Summer Garden granny squares, just one, to see if I can follow the pattern you understand... Well, needless to say, they are totally addictive.........
One thing that I have decided to do, (and would recommend), is to weave in all the ends on each square as I go. Past experience has taught me that this is a very tedious process if left until the end of a project!!
I desperately need some new cushion covers for the furniture in my conservatory and these will be just perfect. All the colours of the rainbow just like the flowers in the garden. Summer Garden Granny's, exactly what it says on the pattern!
Turning my thoughts to up and coming birthdays and dare I say the "C" word! Sorry girls, but we are already half way though the year and the days are just hurtling by. So, as I was saying...I am so loving the pattern that I use for my dishcloths, I wondered to myself, (like you do) whether it would translate well into wool? Well, what can I say, it is lovely. So off to the wool shop for 100% wool, just perfect for warmth and softness against the skin.
This evening I will get on with one of my projects for the swap that I am taking part in. I cannot show you what I am working on at present for obvious reasons. However, I have been working on it in between all the other things that have made my weekend so wonderful. I feel totally relaxed and am now going for a nice warm bubbly bath. The perfect end to a perfect two days. I hope that you have all had a great weekend too.
I leave you with a picture of some of the beautiful and very fragrant roses that are blooming in my garden at the momet...pity you can't smell them as well, they are absolutely divine.
