Some more crochet. I started this on holiday and as it is turning colder I am looking forward to making good use of this. More details will follow when I do a reveal post.
Have you ordered anything from Wool Warehouse and received it in one of these lovely organza bags and then not known what to do with the bag when your project is finished. Well, may I suggest using them as laundry bags. I washed something in one this week and it worked so well. Item washed and dried and all safe and no bits caught. I will be using the bag again.
Oh, and what is this thing I washed. This.
It was made by my Mum - in 1975 according to the date! - and used to hang on the back of my baby brothers bedroom door when he was a child. Hubby found it in our loft this week in the middle of a roll of posters. You know, the obvious place to keep it! I thought I would wash and iron it and then hang it on the back of my office door. It likes living on the backs of doors it seems.... Just need to iron it and get a hook and.....
The yarn I ordered in July to continue to make my New England Hexi Blanket never arrived, so at the end of August I cancelled the order and got it from somewhere else. So now I am back to work on it I thought you might like to see how it is going. I have loads of hexies made, but I was nearly out of the creamy coloured yarn to join it all together. Once this is done, I can do a bedroom reveal to you! Everything seems to be waiting on something else right now....
A few little lovelies from the garden.
The yucca sprouts are doing really well! I am very pleased with them.
There is still plenty of colour in the garden too and now that the grass has turned green again it looks lovely out of the window.
Mr Robin is very happy, although he does appear to be playing hide and seek!
Since getting back from our holiday I haven't been feeling myself. I think because I was icky, the change of seasons and the fact that I am not back in my routine yet. I don't know about you, but I often feel a bit flat when I get back from a holiday. All that rushing around before then off enjoying yourself, I need to get back to me again. I am feeling rather anxious right now actually, probably because I know that I am busy until the middle of October and I feel the loom of Christmas, which I realise is ridiculous, but sometimes I just feel the weight of things upon me.
All I want is to feel that I have a day to myself to do nothing at all! Silly and probably selfish, but that is how I feel. I have a need to hibernate and hide myself away. So I am going to give myself a few days off blogging to have a change of scene and do some decorating of the house for autumn and let myself just be in the times that I can do that. Not a whole day, but still good! I will be fine, you just know how it is sometimes. Or perhaps you don't. I am a real contradiction. I hoard and I chuck, and I am an extrovert and a deep introvert too. If you don't see me around for a little bit that is why. All good, just off playing elsewhere. But you know I will be back! And I really am alright!! Really. No need for any worries!
