Well February whizzed by pretty quickly didn't it, and here we are 6 days into March already. I feel like I've been doing plenty but at the same time not achieving a lot, if that makes sense.
I'm working on trying to get this blanket done for Mother's Day.
I bought the yarn a while ago on a trip to Hobby Craft and i did start this blanket almost straight away and then thought that although I really love the colours they don't really 'go' anywhere in our house, so put it to one side.
Then I thought seeing as i'd already worked quite a bit on it I would carry on and it could be a picnic blanket.
But then it changed its purpose once again when my daughter, Joanne was visiting my mum and she said to her that she wished I would make her a lap blanket for when she is sitting at night.
I immediately thought, yes, a home for the blanket, Mothers Day present sorted :-)
I've been working on it almost every night for an hour or so, any longer and my hands ache because of the large hook, and being chunky, it's growing quite nicely though, and all being well it should be finished and ready to give mum on March 26th.
I love how the colours look with the V stitch.
Storm Doris swept into Midlands couple of weeks ago and she took the fence on the left hand side of our garden with her. Everything from the fence post you can see in the photo, right to the top of the garden, gone!
It's the side that belongs to our neighbour so we won't have to stand the cost, and to be honest the fence wasn't in great condition, he had mentioned last year that he would have to get it replaced.
We wanted to dig up that scrap of grass and make the path a little wider this year so i'm sort of hoping that he will leave the fencing a little longer because it will make working that side a little easier.
For now we have an open plan garden.
Some days have been lovely since, like today, I was able to hang washing on the line this afternoon, and it all but dried too. Its lovely to see the garden slowly coming to life again.
And today's beautiful sunshine bought a little visitor out to sun himself.
He sat there for ages enjoying the weather on our neighbours tree.
I think he had just spotted the cats in the garden here, he looks like he's peeking
I did remember to change my mantle for March and have just gone with a Spring theme as I didn't have anything stitched March related.
Still love this little freebie from Snowflower Diaries
But I forgot to show you my monster Amaryllis, it just kept growing and growing.
It finally reach 3 feet tall!!
It looks rather silly in that small pot lol
And I ended up having to tie the two stems together for support.
It is past it's best now but I think I will try the bulb again next year to see if it will come back, If it does at least i'll be prepared for how big it will be.
When I started this post I didn't think I had much to share with you, but it looks like I did after all.
Have a good week
Until next time
