I have colour in my life, I make sure of that.
The wreath for me is done, all the flowers and leaves are pinned in place. I want to have a little look through my sparkly box and add some little beads or buttons to some of the flowers. A job for this afternoon.
This is my stock of started greens. I do have a very light and a very dark tucked away, but will use these up before getting them out.
I want to make a little stack of leaves, just in case I need some for another wreath.
My pot of small balls and scraps, it makes me happy to delve in here and see what is hiding at the bottom.
The started balls, hardly used, are together. I only want to use these when I need a colour that is not in the small pot.
Some of the unwrapped balls, all of these are DK, the Aran and speciality yarns are under the sofa along with the darker colours. The little mark in the middle of the cream is a shadow, I went into full panic when I spotted it in the photo.
These are the leaves and flowers left over, I started to pack them tightly but changed my mind from "more is best" to "less is more".
And my late Christmas pressy, isn't she cute?
I have a pump and bell as well. I just need to dig a lock and chain out of the glory hole, oh and some decent weather. There are a few cycle tracks and several roads that hardly see a car from one day to the next close by. I do not envisage cycling to Pontardawe as the road is not good, but the road to Ammanford is fine. So is the road to Brynamman but it is uphill most of the way. Worth it though as then the Black Mountain opens up to be enjoyed.
I will have to take it steady as it is over 2 years since I was last on 2 wheels.
These are my bargains from a pop in to Tesco on Wednesday afternoon. I bought more than one of each but did not empty the shelves. The soft cheese is destined to become a stir in pasta sauce with some spinach, and maybe some purple sprouting broccoli both from the garden.
The baby corn is open frozen and then packed into a box, great for stir fries and soup.
Ben is fully recovered and is making "Walk time noises" at me.
Enjoy your weekend, wherever you may be.
