Shall we take a look at what i did yesterday??
I sat making the squares of my blanket while the boys rode their bikes backwards and forwards in front of the house. It wasnt really that warm but it was nice enough to actually enjoy it. Listening to the boys giggle and play while i was engrosed in my wool was a simple pleasure....
Im a cardigan girl, always have been, always will be.....dont you think it needs a little something though - im thinking i might have to crochet a broach! lol
See those frills, yes thats a dress and leggings im wearing! For so long i admired anyone who had the guts to wear what the heck they fancied and one day thought 'what the heck' im only 34 and if i dont do it now i never will. Its a liberating feeling when you give up worrying what others think! ;)
Anyways, back to my squares! Im so pleased with the progress so far and im thinking if i do at least 3 maybe 5 squares a day i should have it finished within a month or so (including sewing etc) Oops i think i just set myself a target! haha
I even managed to make one of the little flowers that sit in the middle - that was a little harder than i anticipated, especially at 2am!! The air was a lovely shade of blue for a little while but i stuck with it and the first one is done and sewn in place and im so happy with it if not a little proud :)
I giggled when i saw the calender page for yesterday, take a look...
1. I can crochet ;)
2. I dont need to be concerned with what everyone else thinks.
3. I can't please everyone so stop trying.
4. I can stick to a diet lol.
5. I love my blog, the visitors, the blogs i visit, the whole world of Blogdom has opened so many doors for me and 5 years ago i didnt even know what one was :)
(there are lots of other things too but i will make it 5 in 5 years)
What 5 things do you know today that you didnt know 5 years ago??
Ooh i could have popped down that i didnt realise how addicting stamping could be! I needed a bookmark yesterday and instead of tearing off some writing paper, or using one of those subscription cards you get in magazines, i ran to my scrap stuff and made one! I adore this sentiment and it makes me smile each time i see it. I love tea too so it seemed only natural that i combine the two, now though i get distracted stroking the bookmark when im meant to be reading the book! (ok so i look at the pictures mainly - but it is Rachel Ashwells shabby chic home book so im allowed to just sit and drool!) :)
