Last weekend we got to enjoy an extra long weekend with public holidays here last Friday and on Monday. Glenn and I had lots of around the house jobs planned but with the weather more like winter again, much of our to do list will have to wait for a fine weekend. We still managed to get the barbeque cleaned, the outside deck and all the patio furniture washed down and the vegetable garden planted with some more seedlings potted up. There was also a catch up with friends and a few glasses of bubbles consumed to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary.
I didn't much crafting done either but I was able to finish off one or two things. I had stitched this Country Cottage Needleworks ornament ages ago, and after being inspired by a similar finish on Pinterest, I decided to have a go at crocheting a trim around the outside.
Angels by Country Cottage Needleworks
stitched on 32ct cream belfast linen using the recommended threads
I also finished several of these little Angels, ready now for the pressie box. This is a little pattern by Rosalie Dekker.
Other projects on the go include more sock knitting, I've started the second sock using the gorgeous Bleating Art Yarn I bought back in August.
I also started a simple granny square blanket using the left over yarn from Hannah's cupcake blanket.
This will be a dolly/teddy sized blanket for a friend's daughter.
See you soon x
