Yesterday was the last day of the Six Nations competition, and Wales won convincingly, by beating England 30-3. Sadly Scotland did not beat France, but France still won the wooden spoon, because their margin of victory was not great enough.
Anyhow – I had an enjoyable day of sitting on the couch and watching burly men rolling around in the mud. I could have done quite a lot of knitting, but managed not to do any at all.
Today started with breakfast in bed, and then a trip up to Braehead for coffee and cake, before going to collect the boys from their hockey match, and the afternoon will be a spot more tv viewing, perhaps with some knitting this time.
I am considering trying to make a felted iris, for my mother. She grows and shows irises, but there is a competition coming up that is too early in the season for her to have any irises to show, so she is going to enter a competition for a display of various different iris related craft items. I have promised to do her a knitted square with an iris on it, and it occurred to me that I might be able to make the different elements of an iris flower, its stalk and its leaf, out of a mix of needle felting and wet felting, and construct an iris for her to enter. I will need a template for the petals – I might ask her to draw the shape she wants and post/email it to me. If it works out, I will post a picture here – and if it doesn’t, I will never mention it again! << grins >>
