I had a lovely Valentine's day my hubby and I went for a walk in the local park. Then we called at a local craft shop on the way home. Someone at work told me that they had started to sell yarn. What more incentive does a crafter need to explore?
Guess what they didn't stock yarn but I did buy .... a piece of cotton sateen, some embroidery thread and a cat picture. I haven't embroidered for years, so when the mood takes me I have a project.
I also found some lovely mother of pearl heart buttons and some ladybirds ..
Lets see if we can get a close up of the ladybirds..
sorry can't don't know how to do it ..
I also ordered some Angel Yarns angora to make a cape for my work's 'do'. It arrived late, but the Siena worked much better anyway. What shall I do with the angora now, its too nice to return, I'm sure I'll think of something!!! Its soooo pretty!!!
I have had to start making a baby shawl, my friend at work left to have a baby on Saturday, the pregnancy has flown by, the stork will be here before we know it.
I have found a cute crochet pattern for a toy owl I thought it would be nice for her little three year old daughter. She won't feel as left out if she has something to unwrap too!! I have two little baby girls to knit for, something for Easter would go down well I think! Got to get on to it more photo's soon!!
I have started to read a new book Playing Away by Alex Parks. It isn't something I would go for it was free with a magazine. It says on the front, 'the closest you'll get to an affair, without actually having one', its a real page turner. I was reading it in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep, turned to look at my sleeping hubby and thought - no way man I wouldn't swap you for anything! Still loved up after Valentine's day I guess!!!
Catch u all soon
love Aruba xx
