I didn't mean to blog on a daily basis, but I've had such a lovely day I had to share, so hello again!
Firstly, our hard work in the garden is starting to pay off - we've got some lovely colourful blooms at the moment:
After doing the housework this morning, my husband and I pootled off to Abergavenny to have a nose around a house that's up for sale. It was perfect, so just have to hope ours sells soon. Keep your fingers crossed. I love Abergavenny in case you hadn't guessed!
Whilst there, we popped into The Wool Croft to gaze lovingly at the yarns and have a little squish! They sell such beautiful yarns....sigh. I was tempted by some of the Katia Ribbon Yarn to make a little pouffe, but I have far too much to do at the moment so I resisted.
I couldn't, however, resist buying myself some strawberries, and my lovely husband bought me a little gift too!:
Cuddle and Cwtch - perfect for my packed lunch! I can have one for crudites, one for houmous, one for strawberries and one for snacking nuts, seeds and fruits!
Cuddle and Cwtch, looking at all the beautiful little dresses for little girls, I decided I just have to make something I've seen on Pinterest (but with my own twist of course!) It's a free pattern on Ravelry - Granny Square Crochet/Fabric Dress by Mon Petit Violon. I've been in love with the pattern for a while, but sewing is something of a chore for me. I don't know why - I enjoy embroidery and cross stitch, but for some reason I feel the same way about sewing construction as I do about cleaning the bathroom! But it's so cute I've got to give it a go. So I bought a few metres of cotton fabric:
So tonight I am making a daisy garland/bunting instead. Although I have just discovered Clipper Sleep Easy Tea (orange, cinnamon, chamomile and valerian mmmmmmmm yummy!)....so hopefully I won't doze off, crochet hook in hand!
Love & hugs
