Feeling Fridayish?? I am and it feels FAB :o)
A quick post today my Lovelies as I suddenly seem to have a lot to do.
In case you hadn't read the edited addition to yesterdays post, can I let you know that the Neat Ripple Pattern is finished and can be found in the usual sidebar place, or click here to find it. I hope that you might be inspired to create yourself some Rippley Gorgeousness for your own home, its such a fabulous way to play with colour and enjoy some moments each day riding the ripples and soothing away your stresses. I highly recommended it.
Its the last day of school today so will have my delightful Little People at home with me next week for the Easter holidays, which means certain things need to be accomplished today whilst I have some hours to myself. You will laugh I expect at my Priorities, at todays To-do list...want to know? Ok, but shhhhhh don't tell the Husband!
1. Go buy more fresh flowers from the market
2. Go buy pots of tete a tete to plant up an Easter table display.
3. Hunt round charity shops (all 8 of them) to look for suitable bowl to plant tete a tete into.
4. Nip to butchers to buy sausages for tonights dinner
5. Have a go at blowing out some eggs to decorate whilst Little Hands are not around to "help"
6. Buy chocolate to make crispy nests.
7. Buy the latest issue of Country Homes and Interiors ready for the weekend
8. Try and tidy up the house a little before going to Church at 1.45pm for the Easter service.
Yesterday afternoon I did manage to tidy and clean the sitting room end of our living space and it was quite blissful sitting down this morning with my feet up to drink my morning coffee with everything unusually spik and span. A swept out fire, plumped up cushions, neatly straightened blankets, an un-bitty floor, dusted shelves, a tidy mantel (with the fourth batch of narcissi blooming away) and even the rareist of rare things, a clear coffee table. Well clear except for my stripey-socked feet and this piece of circular lovliness.....
WOW, just check out that whirly hooky circle of scrumptiousness!! Heeheee!!! Yeah, last night I finished off the first side of my circular cushion cover and oh I am Thrilled with it. I made 21 rounds to fit a 16" cushion, using the Rowan Pure wool DK that I have in my stash. Doesn't it go well with todays New Socks??!
I think I'm going to stitch this crochet flower in the centre look (it's the Helenium flower, pattern #73 in Lesley Stanfields book), and am just trying to decide now whether to crochet another circle to make the back of the cushion, or whether to look for another thrifted wooly jumper instead? I think my instinct is to crochet the reverse, but am open to opinions and suggestions on that one, let me know what you think.
Right-o, I need to get my squishy backside up off this computer chair, down out of the Attic and swinging into action.
I've got flowers and chocolate and plants and bowls and sausages and eggs and magazines to buy. And then a light bit of waltzing around with my newest bit of equipment...a new vacuum cleaner...hmmm not as delicious as the bag full of new yarn I purchased yesterday, but nevertheless, tis quite nice getting new kit with a Min/Max dial and nifty Nozzles and a Suction with Max Power.
What was that? Did I mention a bag FULL of new Yarn????? Goodness me, so I did.
Oh, i suppose you want me to share that with you too?
Well you shall just have to come back on Monday and I might unpack it for you to see.
I know, such a tease.
See you next week, have a lovely weekend :o)
Edited to add :: 5pm, am about to drink a glass of chilled white wine and sit in the evening sunlight with Coast magazine...SO glad it's Friday :o)
