Not long until we go away now - to find the sun! :)
So, this weekend it was time to update a few bits of clothing (I don't get quite so excited about a new bikini these days - no matter what the bikini is like, it's the body that's the problem! But I love the feel of the sun on my skin, so I refuse to totally cover up!).
But most of the preparation so far, is what yarn to take, and how much can I get in my case!
First job was to finish the cushion which has been hanging around for ages. I couldn't work out how to finish it. The butterflies are good - but I wish I'd made it more colourful. The idea of just picking a couple of colours from the ripple blanket, was to make it match, but not blend in. The idea is better than the reality - but you live and learn.
My entrance hall is bright and cheerful now.
Then on to holiday planning - big time:
Cards prepared and written to be sent to those whilst we are away:
I've decided to leave Matts ripple behind
And time for some new projects!
Christmas Gifts - thanks to The Patchwork Heart
New yarn ordered - whoops!
And, if I can squeeze all that style craft in my case - time for a new throw.
Using a pattern by Lucy at Attic 24 - The Summer Garden Granny
So much to do - and all exciting happy stuff.
(I won't mention that I get stressed trying to get everything organised before holidays!)
