The weather is turning cooler here now and we have quite a bit of rain. There is still a LOT I am thankful for.Big things and little .
1. As the temperatures drop my crochet blankets come into their own once more. THIS blanket is in daily use for warming up on cool mornings ( I haven't put the heating on yet ) . Squares I started back HERE have gained another round. This blanket was supposed to be a picnic blanket but that didn't happen so now I'm thinking it would make a nice cosy winter blanket.
I decided to add a calm colour as a border for each square as I worried all the bright colours I had used would be a little too busy. I pondered for quite a while what colour to use...in the end I chose stylecraft Denim..........
I'll keep you posted on it's progress.
2. Sunflowers. This year they are HUGE. We even measured them the other day...12 feet...they look gorgeous growing up the side of the shed but their height means I can't really pick a few to enjoy in the house as I usually do............
3. Thrifted crockery. I bought two of the pretty plates with a sweet blossom design ages ago . I loved the creamy yellow , pink and soft green colour combination. This week I found a cute hunny pot and two more plates in similar colours. I'm hoping to gradually make a " spring" collection for my WELSH DRESSER. I love the blue , red and white colour scheme it has got at the moment, but it's always nice to have a change occasionally.........
Hope your week was a good one.
Running update. Things are going well ( touch wood ) with my half marathon training. I've run 19 miles in total this week including a 14k ( 8 and 3/4 mile ) long run............ Yay me :0)
