...waiting for brighter, lighter days to arrive, it's very gloomy here at the moment. It's quite hard to take decent photos with such low light levels, so please forgive the rather dubious quality of today's offerings.
...wishing I could stop wishing the months away! I keep finding myself longing for Easter. I found my dear little Easter rabbits lurking on the book shelf next to the Big Dictionary a few days ago, so I scooped them up and moved them across to the mantel, I love seeing them there. Also loving my little narcissi too, spring bulbs + stripy cornishware = pure happiness.
...waiting patiently for my Amarylis bud to burst into flower, I chat to it every single day and marvel at it's progress.
..waiting, waiting, waiting, that first bloom is oh-so-close to opening now, I am holding my breath. Tomorrow could be the day.
...wishing for Spring, dammit. I can't help myself. I do (as you know) try very hard to live in the present, see the good in the everyday, to appreciate the slowly turning seasons, the variety of the weather etc etc. But truthfully I have already moved on and am over the Winter now. So over it.
...wishing I could show you my current hooky project (see my rather full and voluptuous yarn bag in the background??). I'm working on a pretty little decorative something that's making me very happy, but I need to make a few more of them before I show you what's what.
...wishing, waiting, waiting and wishing that the days were lighter and brighter (did I say that already) cos I cannot seem to take any decent photos of my blanket. I've tried, on numerous occasions, but the colours just don't look right. I am quite desperate to do my Ta-dah-ing!
...waiting for the exact right inspiration/pattern to present itself so I can begin working with my New Year New Yarn.
...wishing you could reach into your computer and stroke the above, it's unbelievably soft and silky. This is Debbie Bliss "Andes", which is a sumptuous (and expensive) blend of baby alpaca and mulberry silk. It really is delicious.
I've got a vague plan to make a large, generous scarf/wrap type thing with it, but am still on the lookout for a suitable pattern/stitch/idea.
Wishing you a happy day my lovelies, I will try not to make you wait too long for the Sweet Flower blanket Ta-dah or the decorative little hooky something.
See you soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
