Postie knocked the door with an envelope and inside was a lovely surprise. Inside were these 2 lovely peach coloured balls of wool from Christine with a little note asking if i could put them to good use. DD loves the colour and is busy planning what i can possibly make with them. She keeps changing her mind... little knitted or granny crochet blanket for the car seat? little cardigan? i wonder what she'll eventually choose LOL Thank you so much Christine for your kindness and online friendship.
Here are my new wheels. She's not the car we went to the garage to look at, that one didn't pass DH's inspection. Right at the back of the garage in the dark he spotted this little lady and asked the salesman about her, she was not ready for be put up for sale as she needed some TLC, but DH persuaded the guy to let us look at her. He did all his usual checks and said she was perfect. We collected her the following week and she hadn't even been advertised, she's the same colour as dads old car that i had to replace - i think we were meant to have her.
DH has named her Heidi as she was 'hiding' in the back of the garage. Why is it all mechanics called cars 'she'? Does your car have a name?
That cute kitty (treacle) from next door decided he needed to get in on the pic and say hello to you all, he's still coming round for his cuddles
It's so nice to be out and about again, although i've mainly been to the drs and back LOL The respiratory thing has come back with a vengance and brought with it an awful cold so i am back on the super strong antibiotics again. I hope all of you who have been poorly are well on the mend, i've had it since early December and thats way too long now!
Crafting news ...
I have been stitching. The monthly challenge at Needlecraft Haven is Petit Chat by Tralala. A cute little kitty and a lovely design to stitch. Not a very challenging finish for me this month, but it was the perfect design to accompany a gift i was putting together for a friends birthday early next month. No reveal though until the ablum is open 30th of this month, sorry.
The round robin in stitching up nicely too, my part will be finished this week, i'll show you the design i have chosen for mine next time i post.
Knitting needles are also going, i've started a little cardigan/matinee coat design that DD wanted me to knit for baby. It's an old pattern that belonged to my late MIL, i saw her knit it many times, i hope i can make it as well as the ones i saw her knit up.
A new bunny has also come to life.
Cathey, here's whats in the envelope that i left with my postmaster yesterday. I hope it arrives with you in double quick time. Just a little teaser, i made sure this colour tissue paper wasn't see through just to keep you guessing till it gets to you... what a meanie i am LOL
Thanks for stopping by, wishing you all happy crafting times
