Today has been a bright sunny day, a break from all the driving rain.
To start off today here's some pictures of a Blue Tit taken with our lovely SLR camera. Mr Clicky and me treated ourselves to a new lens at Christmas. I put this nut feeder near the kitchen window and waited, these pictures were taken with a quick fire shutter. The Blue Tit was very industrious.
Mr Clicky left for Vienna and the Czech Republic early this morning on a business trip. He'll be away all week, which is probably just as well because the last time I saw my car it was up on a ramp at the local garage. It's juddering, whining and producing odd smells. Whilst it's having a short holiday at the garage, I can use Mr Clicky's car to get to work. I hope it's ok.
The dog and me went for a walk in today's sunshine which was lovely and when I got back I lit the fire. I resisted the temptation to sit down in front of it, and, with Mr Clicky away I tidied the study, pottered around, got the duster out, (Two weeks in a row. I know.) had a hoover and a bit of me time. This has made me most content.
Something else making me happy, a bargainous bunch of £15.00 flowers reduced to £4.50. They are lovely.
My Temari Cardi is coming along a pace, thanks for your lovely comments on it last week.
And lastly a finished thing.
Puff Daddy footstool.
The pattern is here, if you're interested. Just a rectangle of garter stitch, I used Hoooked Zpagetti which is t-shirt yarn and 12mm needles. Dead easy knitting which I completed last May. Stuffing proved little more tricksy but eventually I plumped on a large polyester pillow with a single basic quilt wrapped around the outside. Me and Mr Clicky man-handled it into the pouch and then I laced up the bottom. Phew!
Master Clicky and the dog modelling.
That's about it I think, Mr Clicky back on Friday so a quiet week for me.
Have a great week.
See you soon..............Clicky Needles.
