Each year she gives me the first bloom from it as a mark of our friendship. Today was that day. We were discussing when it flowered last year - we think this year its a bit later and neither of us could remember. I decided to take a pic this year of it with my perpetual calendar that sits on my kitchen window ledge so I can remember it. This year it is more special as she is undergoing some not nice medical tests at present which we are hoping will turn out to be nothing at all.
Last weekend was a bank holiday weekend and that means an extra day to stitch on the UFO project. I was really good and managed two borders on Irish Garden. It's almost finished!
We've been asked to make larger clothes at the charity knitting group as well for babies and toddlers who are taken into care for any number of reasons and arrive with nothing. A small cardigan and two hats flew off the needles this past week....
My "lucy bag" I crocheted quite some time ago has wanted lining, that was last Thursdays craftshare project for me. Some lovely fabric now makes it more useable. The pattern for this crochet bag is on the blog from Lucy at Attic 24.
Another birthday in the family this week too. Isabelle turned 4 ..... I know.... where have four years gone to since I was so excited and honoured to be present at her birth. Just look at her now .... all growed up and ready to start school in September.
This weekend is the stitchers meet up so i'll be back real soon with some pics of the day.
Love and blessings to you all
