The (very) eagle eyed amongst you will notice a slight change to my age today.
Yep it's my birthday.
We had planned to see Harry Potter which I'm really looking forward to but............
It started snowing at lunch time and now (5.oo pm) it's still going.
Anyhoo I've had a nice pottering sort of day.
Mr Clicky Needles has promised me "wooly' type things for my birthday pressie. I now need to think about what I'd like. Do I need more yarn? Not really!!!!!!!
The postie didn't manage to get to us so I've not had many cards to open but that really doesn't matter.
I started with the decorations on Sunday but my 'new' colour scheme for the tree didn't go well, the turquoise blue really wasn't that great.
I changed my plans last minute to black/pink/purple but the few pink and purple decorations I had weren't looking very good, I was feeling very meh, which wasn't good as putting up decorations usually makes me really happy.
On Monday Mr Clicky Needles suggested we went out and got some more, so we warmed up the trusty 4 x 4 did a food shop and dropped into Homebase. They had fabby pink baubles and pink ribbon, so when we got back I had so much fun.
The mantel piece now looks lovely and pink!..........
.........I'm particularly pleased with the vase on the end.
Today I've adding more bits and pieces ~ this is the hallway.......
...the top of the bookcase in the hall.
and the little Nativity in the kitchen.
There is still lots more to show ~ I'll get more piccys tomorrow.
Me obsessed with decorations?
Here's my waistcoat with the button finally added.
Knit in Stylecraft Life Super Chunky on 12mm needles. I made in one piece as I didn't want bulky seams, the pattern was from a book called Knitting in No Time which I got cheap from the book club at school. Cosy warm even though it has no sleeves!
Bye for now, Clicky Needles.
