Days off x x

Hello my loves, how are you guys today? I'm feeling great ;)

 My work has finished at college until September, so for the past couple of weeks I've had Monday and Tuesday off.......bliss.
 I haven't got an excuse for not blogging really! I've just been abit selfish with my time and wanted it all to myself, tee, hee. I've loved every minute and I've been surprisingly busy. Not just with the crochet I might add!!
I've been buying clothes for our holiday, school uniform for September, tiles for the kitchen. I've been to the library, opticians, dentist and of course I've managed to get back to knit and Natter.. hoorah!!
I didn't realise just how much I'd missed it until I saw all of my proper lovely friends ;)

I can't say I've managed much gardening tho', I managed to dash out Sunday afternoon to mow the lawn and pull up a few extra big weeds before the rain came tumbling down!! I can't wait to get out there and make it all neat and tidy.....rain, rain go away!!!!! It had better not follow me to France!

In between the showers I did manage to harvest some of our potatoes.......
And delicious they were too.

I finished my stole/shawl a couple of weeks ago as well.....
I am sooo pleased with it and love the rippled edge.....

Would you like to see it on?.....

It is so snuggly, I wrapped it around myself and day dreamed about the cool evenings in France, sipping wine and watching a show....aaaaahhh ;)

I can't wait, not long now :) x

That brings me to Charlies blanket.....

It doesn't look like I've done much, I think I've made it too wide. I don't have the heart to undo it and start again. I'm sure it will be fine :)
I think I have plenty of yarn to finish it, don't you??

I've also been making more bootees/Mary Janes...

I've also been creating this....

I cannot wait to assemble all of these body parts!! One last leg to complete and then I'm done. I'm afraid you'll have to wait until next week to see him/her x x

I'm off to read this months....

Over a cuppa. I will be back next Tuesday my loves, I'll make sure I'm more organised from now on and get back to my regular Tuesday posts.

Much love to you all, thank you for continuing to read and support my little space of  happiness.

Night night for now and happy crocheting x x x x x x x x

P.s Great news, Daisy and Charlie have both got fantastic teachers in September....... hoorah! Sometimes you do get what you wish for ;)x x x x x x x x


  1. Did you have all the pages in MM or 8 pages repeated and so missing 8 pages? I did! They are sending me a new copy as there was a problem with the printers.

  2. Hiya Rachel, my Mollie Makes was fine thankfully, What bad luck for you. It must have been a bad batch x
