Straight Tulips

Hello All!

I thought I'd start off by showing my Mother's Day Flowers Miss Clicky bought me.
Red and yellow tulips.  Lovely.
They were a bit floppy however, so I pricked them behind the flower head with a pin and put some sugar for food in the water.
When I came downstairs this morning they were standing up straight in the sunshine.
I spent Mother's Day painting the en-suite.  It has been virtually finished, the plumber has to come back to put in the towel rail and two lights around the mirror.   Mr Clicky is banned from painting so it is my job.  After we brought the tin of newly mixed paint for the bathroom, he opened it, we looked at the colour and put the lid back on.  Whilst putting the lid on he got paint all over his hands and then splattered it up his coat and jumper.  He is no better with a brush in his hand, there's more running down his arm than going on the wall so, no more. 

I'll show some pictures when the bathroom is fully complete.

I have been knitting white a lot too.   This is my Driftwood by Isabell Kraemer.  The pattern is stripy, I am making mine plain with some colour blocks.    As it's a double knit rather than the 4ply cardi I made a while back, it's moving fast.  
The pattern had the lovely 'contiguous' set in sleeves and are a joy to work.  The yarn ~ Drops Lima was last year's Christmas  Present from Mr Clicky, so I'm pleased to be using it up.
I'm hoping it doesn't turn out to be be too much like a school jumper when it's done.........

That's me for now, 
have a super week........................Clicky Needles.


  1. Happy Mothering Day! The tulips and the love they represent are so sweet. In spite of the splashed paint your progress finishing the ensuite is heartening. And I admire your knitting...all those beautiful tiny stitches! :) I just posted a pic of the first baseball baby hat I ever crocheted [for a new little friend born in CA several months ago.] I learned how to do a front post double crochet thanks to YouTube :) xx

  2. Lovely flowers and good tip to perk them up.

  3. Beautiful flowers!! Hope that the painting is going well without Mr C's help! xx

  4. Happy Mother's Day, love your beautiful tulips and that gorgeous sweater.
    Have a great week,
