Nearly there!

I’m so pleased to be able to say that the Spirit of May is almost done! All blocks are finished – and LOOK! It’s a bad photo – taken late last evening – not just finished BUT JOINED! Now it’s waiting for a simple border. (and a few ends, too). It won’t take long now…

I did it!

Yes, April was finished last Thursday evening. Phew! Now I can get on with May, which is a little more colourful.  I have a few things on the back burner which I’ll share with you over the next weeks but one thing is for certain – I won’t be starting July until June is finished…

Flaming June!

To say that it’s been ‘warm’ here is a bit of an understatement! According to the thermometer the garden temperature is currently 30 deg C. The days have been sunny and warm – each day fielding glorious blue skies and no rain in evidence at all. If the heat continues we will probably be under…

That’s the Spirit!

My last post confirmed that it’s June! However, the main object of my current attention is STILL April! I certainly bit off rather more than I could chew in a single month. It was a steep learning curve  in a number of ways, but I’ll share those with you another day. The problem with April…

Five Colour Friday 

Parchment, Raspberry, Storm Blue, Sage and Apricot are the colours for this week. This is a very pretty combination Save

Home for a rest!

I’ve just had a week of visual delights! Another trip to Norway is something we have been promising for a very long time. We finally made it! I’ll probably share a few pictures from time to time – but today I’m catching up on a little rest and emails. They certainly fill the inbox while…

A Touch of Constance

I enjoy a challenge. Choosing colours for a project isn’t usually a challenge – and I can work with most of them. This project is probably the nearest I have come to a ‘scrap’ project. I have some yarns left over from previous projects and they are taking up space. They are from a mix…

Do not read this post without sunglasses

You may remember that I ran out of Parma Violet, well today I’ve managed to locate some – so I’ll soon be back on track. In the meantime I’ve pressed on with both the Spirit and Temperature blankets. The first 15 days of April were certainly colourful! I didn’t expect that bright splash of Yellow,…

Time for another C2C!

At last I can start on a larger project. It’s yet another Corner to Corner blanket The yarn is Cygnet, Kiddies DK. Sherbet dip is the colourway and it’s very pretty. It’s good to be working on something a bit more substantial, but I’ll fit in the Temperature blanket and the Spirit of April somehow…

Spirit of April 

The first block is complete. But I still have to decide on a joining colour Save

And so March ended!

Spring sprung in no uncertain terms when the month ended with no less than 20 deg C! A splash of yellow was the last thing I expected to see in last month’s temperature blanket! On to April now – I wonder what will occur.
