For generations to come….

he reckons…I’m not so sure….I’m a woman of little faith….but one thing I’m certain of is that he is enjoying the work, the process, the challenges….and I’m quite pleased…in all honesty…I’m making plans in my head….the tiny patio area will need some cheering up once the table is in place…a bright coloured table cloth?…..a couple of nice bright cushions? some crochet bunting?…..we’ll see…..

Moving out…

 

not the best day for it but the runner beans were running up the curtains and the weather forecast is rain and cold and cold and rain all week…let’s hope these beans are the adaptable resilient type…..

and definitely not the weather for table building outside either…dh is working on a project of his own too….

He reckons we’ll have a solid table for the patio area in less than a week….insh’Allah…now we only need nice weather to eat al fresco….

Organizing WIPs

a.k.a ‘an excuse to make another basket’….you know what is like when you have learnt something new and you want to keep doing it because it’s lots of fun….well that’s exactly what happened here…and you can’t deny that WIPS in pretty baskets are much more pleasing to the eye than in ugly plastic carrier bags ….

 The beans are doing best but the sweet corn and courgettes doing pretty well too…tomatoes need a couple of days more, at least……just as well cause I still haven’t figured out where everything is going…I will have to go slow and work it out as I go along…well that seems to be the story of my life…’play it by ear’…yeah that sums me up alright…

So , I guess the next few days are going to be busy in the garden for us….How are you guys spending the long weekend?

WIP no more…..

I did it!!! and I did it my way…….I was following the pattern and instructions until I decided that mine was going to be a bit bigger…so the numbers didn’t add up when it came to placing the handles but I kind of played it by ear…I think is cute and it has a real purpose…to hold the current WIP 😉  ….what do you think? Not bad for a first time right?

I couldn’t help myself….

I just had to start on a new crochet project…even when I already have at least 3 WIP’s going on…never mind….apparently is quite normal…a lot of my friends tell me so….

This one is going to be a hippy happy crazy kind of baby blanket…very unlike me…the only rule is ‘no rule’…every combination goes…the crazier the better….colours I would never ever put together….

I’m following this pattern….quite addictive, hard to put down kind of granny squares…
