Hello all, hope you've had a good week.
Despite that horrible rain I talked about last Sunday, it has been here,
as in most of Britain boiling.
I've spent some time in the garden in my steamer chair just enjoying it.
I've had a couple of nice surprises this week.
1. Leah from Faith's Craft Box nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.
Thank you! I will post later in the week, I need a bit of time to think of the answers!
2. I won the giveaway that Tickety Boo was running!
What a lucky girl I am!
I've watched some more Rugby World Cup (although I'm not impressed by England's performance so far) and finished my Zooming scarf.
Our South Sea Island head ~ the perfect model ~ looks quite cosy doesn't he?
As promised the pictures of my Montague Vest. I'm sooooo pleased with it.
Made in Rowan Little Big Wool which I got in a half price sale.
I love the lace pattern and the fit is really nice.
Whilst I've been in the garden I did a bit of a crochet
(it's not all been snoozing you know)
these are the latest 'set'.
I've become quite systematic about I how make the squares, this is the total amount I can make with red and lime green adding each one of the other nine colours for the middle.
Now, I want opinions please, you see the pink centre on the bottom right? What do you think about the colour?
You can see it in my crochet bag on the left.
I feel meh about it.
I've got my friendship squares sent. The red is not as dark as it looks here.
A few flowers from the garden.
and a Marigold, both self-seeded.
Well I'm off now, no ironing tonight, I did that whilst watching the rugby this morning, so just lots of knitting.
Bye for now..................Clicky Needles.
