Monday – fun, productive but terrible weather!


As befits a British Bank Holiday, it is cold and very wet today.  There was a tentative plan for N and the dogs to come over to knitting group with me, and we’d have a cup of coffee outside, before they walked home – but the weather scotched that one!  So I went off to knitting on my own, and had a very good morning, despite a bit of a headache.  I’ve mastered a new crochet granny square, and made it in three different colour combinations, and I made a square out of four smaller squares sewn together – I can see the variety of pieces for my patchwork blanket really starting to accumulate now.  Of course, if I did more crocheting during the week, I would be making even more progress, but hey ho.

One of the ladies brought a friend to the group today – who had a big bag full of patchwork fabric she wanted to give away, so I have come home with a lovely selection of fabrics, and am going to have a go at patchwork – and when I get my darning foot (for my machine) I will have a go at quilting too!  I will make some more cushion covers, I think.

I am afraid this is going to be another short entry – my brain has entirely seized up, and I can’t think of anything inspiring – or even vaguely interesting – to say – so I am going to tuck myself up on the couch with a hot drink, and have a relaxing afternoon.  I might do some more crochet – who knows!
