Second post in 2 weeks, I might just be getting back into this blogging thingy :-)
So today is Mothering Sunday here in the UK, and what a lovely day it was for it too, the sunshine has been beautiful and very welcome after all the wintery rain we've had.
My lovely daughters always buy beautiful gifts on such occasions, and today was no exception, I was really spoilt this Mother's Day with all these lovely goodies
I even got some of my favourite chocolates and flowers off the little dude :-) And as if all this wasn't enough I was treated to a lovely afternoon tea at a local Bakery.
I guess I can kiss goodbye to loosing any weight at this weeks
weigh-in, lol but it was worth it, everything was delicious :-)
I've had some crafty goodness going on this week too, In my bid to clear out in preparation for our move I found a couple of things waiting to be made up which I will be trying to get done over the next few weeks, first to be tackled though was this lovely angel.
On knitting needles I found a slipover that I started for Oliver
I had only knit the back before abandoning it in favour of something else, (I imagine, though can't remember what!), luckily it was a size that will still fit him.
And just so that I will have something else to carry on with I started another sweater for him
It's an easy knit and something I can do and watch TV at the same time :-) The yarn is Sirdar Baby Crofter and is oh so lovely work with, produces lovely even stitches and gives a mock fair isle effect (it's a great cheat, because I don't think I would ever be a good enough knitter to attempt a real fair isle pattern).
I've had one more stitchy start this week, Needlecraft Haven forum have a monthly ornament challenge, I've yet to finish one and this month is no different, but at least I made a start :-)
It's a free design you can find here
I didn't take much notice of the size and number of stitches so mine will be too large for an ornament so I need ideas for finishing please!
That's about all for this week except for one more bit of news, well, big news really.
DD#2, Joanne, got engaged!
Gavin proposed last week when they went on a trip to Dublin
She had no idea it was coming but we did as Gavin had phoned Mark a few days before to ask his permission, bless him, he is such a lovely lad, I hope that they will always be this happy.
Until next time
