I received an unexpected bonus yesterday courtesy of my brother. He and his wife have just bought a new washing machine and the one they had isn't that old and they asked if I would like it. I jumped at the chance; it was delivered yesterday and is now in situ in the kitchen. It is immaculate and is working at present and I am chuffed to bits with it. I feel very lucky.
So far this holiday I do not seem to have got on very much with what I had intended. Not that I haven't got on with stuff, just not what I had planned. Never mind, but at least this evening I have managed to sit and do a little bit of crotchet which is very relaxing. I have another long term project of a throw worked in white, wedgewood blue, royal blue, navy blue, red and grey on the go (amongst a load of other things) and I am hoping to have a real spurt in the next few weeks in trying to get some of those UFO's either finished or a little more on the way to being finished. The thing with crotchet is that it grows quickly and the throws are lovely and snuggly especially on a cold evening like it is tonight. They also add individuality to your home. If I had a log fire I would be sat by that working away, just enjoying the piece and quiet and creating.
I am hoping before long to start on the patchwork I need to get stuck in creating rather than thinking about it. I have started a patchwork cushion panel upstairs (another UFO which has been on the go for some time) so I thought that I might on my next holdiay if not before get stuck in and finish that. I have also started an oven cloth. The front is finished but I need to find a suitable fabric to back it up with. I think I may have something suitable in the stash but it is a matter of liberating it. I have the wadding already. So two potential UFO's that quite possibly might be finished before Christmas. That will be a novelty.
Right I am going to get on with a bit more crotchet; it gives me time to think.
Hope everything is okay in your neck of the woods.
Catch up soon.
Love and Light
