I was tidying my yarns this morning, that of course means that I was stroking them and playing with colour combinations, and I had a flashback. A while ago I read Karen's blog and was envious of her Ripple Throw, I had seen this on Attic24 and filed it under MHS, Must Happen Soon that is.
I lined these up and dug my heels in about shuffling the colours around.
There is a gap in the bottom right corner, that colour is on the hook.
The colours here have been muted by the flash the first colour is lavender and the second an in your face bright green. the colours are truer in the top photo.
This is going to be a big squashy cushion, for me, I like sitting on the floor to read and this will be just the job to keep me comfy.
Here is Frank, he is next on my list. Not only do I want him but I have several small remnants of yarn and he will swallow them up.
How cute is that, you can see why I am smitten, I am hoping that I will have enough yarn odds and ends to make a pair.
I have been in the garden this afternoon, tidying and digging out the odd dandelion or 20.
I snapped a few things while I was out there, well you just have to sometimes.
I love the colour of new Rose growth.
Blue bells, growing through the Gooseberries.
Marina's forget me nots are trying to push their way through.
This patch have made it through and set up home.
This Aquilegia is a glorious deep blue and there is a Clematis in there as well, another escapee from Marina's garden.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. A lovely sunny afternoon.
2. The garden is buzzing with insect life.
3. I had company for a while, a young Robin has set up home.
4. The hedgehog house has been used over winter and there are signs of recent activity.
5. I have home grown salad leaves, coriander, basil and radishes to put in my salad tonight.
I have made a Chicken and Chorizo pasta sauce to have with my salad and after being busy am looking forward to it. I still have to walk Ben so that should sharpen my appetite.
I still have 4 David Baldacci books to read, I may get a chance to open them in 3 months or so, it is good seeing him being promoted on the TV. The books are a bit formulaic but enjoyable for all that.
I am off to get Ben in his lead. Oops, just before I go, I have changed the background, this is to reflect the muddy paw prints that I expect to mop up once I get to Wet Wales.
