I don't know if I will have time - or the will - for Valentines decorations this year, but I had to put my button heart out. I still love it!
Hubby took me out for dinner recently. When we arrived at the very nice restaurant there was a pebble on the table - about two inches by three and fairly flat. We wondered what it was for, moved it around a bit and then ignored it.
Turns out it was there for a reason...
When they bought the bread out the bought out the butter balanced on the blade of a knife, they then used another knife to cut off a piece of butter and placed it, yes, you guessed it, on the pebble.
No, we had no idea what to make if it either!
I find it really hard to get gloves that fit. I have really big hands - long, not fat. So when my favourite pair of leather gloves strangely ripped on one thumb I thought I would see if I could repair them.
There you see the hole and then you don't! Not the most elegant of repairs, but it does for me and means that my thumb doesn't catch on things now!
The latest winter storm is due this weekend - for the UK - and it is named Gertrude. Do you know how these names are chosen? No, me either. So I looked it up. There is a whole section on the Met Office website explaining it. Which still didn't really give me an answer. You can find the page here. What I did find though was this list of the names of the storms for this year. I see that we can only have 14 more this year!

I started crocheting with cheap metal crochet hooks, then I progressed to my aluminium "racing hook" as I called it. Now I have progressed further and these are my new favourites. Knit Pro's, light as a feather and so comfortable to hold and work with. I think these are my new favourites!
Those are my five random moments from the week!
Thank you to everyone for your support over the last week and especially your congratulations yesterday about my new business. It is only small at the moment I realise, but it is the taking the step that is the big thing for me. Thank you!!
Happy Weekend and Hugs to you all!!!
