Today I'm Loving.....

 :: Finishing work at five thirty and walking out into the warm, sunny evening air knowing I've got a week off to enjoy with the boys :0) 

:: Stopping the car at the side of the road on the way home to capture the yellow fields...

So much Rape seed here these days . I think it looks stunning ......

:: Getting home a seeing my yellow and red tulips, purchased quite closed up yesterday, looking gorgeous in my blue and white crochet "Cornish wear" vase.....

:: Finding that after making the evening meal ( simple pasta and garlic bread ) it was still warm enough to take my crochet in to the garden......

It was lovely to escape the action movie the males were enjoying indoors ...and just listen to the birdsong whilst I did a little crochet . I even managed to take the pictures for the first four rounds of the hexagon tutorial......

So lovelies ,the tutorial will be coming sometime . I'm now thinking it will probably be after school returns ( the first week in May ) as all five of us are at home next week and there will  too much fun / chaos happening :0)
I'm sure you lovelies will understand ...tutorials seem to take me ages to get right.
Hope your holidays are going well ..... if you are lucky enough to have any .
 I'm bushed now ,  think an early night sounds mighty fine .

  1. Hoo-ray for the holidays!
    I am also so excited about them!
    The outdoor crochet looks great

  2. Wow - those colours are amazing!! Feel free to join in with my "Things I'm Loving" linky today!

  3. Those tulips are so bright and look great in your crochet Cornish wear vase.
    Talking of birdsong, I heard my first cuckoo of the year yesterday.

  4. Sounds like a perfect way to start your Holiday. Looking forward to your tutorial. Have a lovely week with your family.

  5. Beautiful colours and inspiring for our crochet :))

  6. Sounds nice & relaxing! Love the field of yellow!

  7. Lovely work! And that crochet in the garden looks soooo relaxing and great. Enjoy!
    Happy easter,
    love Maaike

  8. I've had a few crochet evenings this week sat outside, you can't beat it, so relaxing.
    Looking forward to yout tutorial.
    Enjoy the holidays. x

  9. Your yarn bag and plant coaster are GOR JASS!

    I feel the same about tutorials, they take ages because you want to get them right otherwise there'd be blue language and hooks flying about across the blogland and you want it to be clear and easy to follow. It's quite a responsibility! I didn't feel confident after doing my tute till someone got in touch and told me it worked!

    I'm so glat coats and clarke gave you the thumbs up, now you can have total confidence you're not breaking any rules.


  10. I'm looking forward to a little Easter hooky :)

    Have a lovely week together as a family, looking for the tutorial x

  11. Beautiful photo's isn't that Rape seed a joy when you see it and so bright and sunny. We are having lovely weather i am living in my garden at the moment ;-)) Have a lovely week off, dee x

  12. Enjoy the break. This weather is just great, very longed for.

  13. I love your "cornish ware" vase - what a clever idea! I do like pieces like that which make you smile. And nothing better than sitting in the sun with some crochet... Have a lovely week with your family! Jane x

  14. I love the pretty doily you have under the vase with the tulips :-)

  15. Beautiful pictures, thanks.
    I wish you Happy Easter, and very nice holiday!

  16. Something about yellow makes you smile
    Have a lovey Easter

  17. Looking forward to the tutorial!!

    May I take this opportunity to let you know how you and the other ladies on my blog roll have inspired me to create my own and invite you to take a look:

    It was late last year that I discovered blogs. I knew they were out there but I didn't really "get" it. Then someone gave me the link a blog as they thought I would appreciate her style. Soon after I joined Blogger and learned how to follow all my favourite blogs.

    My list grows by the day and I love to sit with cup of tea to hand to see what my favourite online ladies have been up to. Of course after becoming an avid blog reader it was inevitable that I would want a blog of my own and so "Shabby Chic Sarah" was born.

    After feeling a bit ambivalent about the whole blogging thing to begin with I am becoming increasingly obsessed!!

    One of the things I enjoy about it is it it makes you stop and think a moment about things in your day that might otherwise go unnoticed as you are constantly looking out for things to share.

    Hope you have a lovely Easter....

    Kind regards,

    Sarah :0)

  18. Hi! Lovely post; and, that doily is so pretty.

  19. Isn't this weather just lovely?? Nice to see you taking the crochet outside! Can't wait for the tutorial. Enjoy your time off. x

  20. Isn't it just such a treat to be able to sit outside for a bit of hooky time in April!? Gorgeous tulips x

  21. Yippee for the hols! I felt just the same when I clocked off on Thursday, just a super walk home in the sunshine anticipating the week ahead!

    Really looking forward to the hexie tutorial, perhaps that can be a new hooky obsession for me and get me off the crochet bracelets!!


  22. Love the cornishware cover, it would be perfect in my cornishware kitchen! I might have to have a go at one of those LOL


I always love to hear from you , thank you for taking the time to leave a message.
