No song lyrics today, just a YouTube link: Aberystwyth
It's been a tough couple of weeks, I've had to spend a lot of time at my dad's bedside in hospital while he's been battling pneumonia; he's rallying a little, which is a relief. The link above is one of his (and mine) favourite Welsh hymns. I do love a Minor key :-). Then we heard about the earthquake in Ecuador where my brother and SiL are on holiday, thankfully they managed to email us that, while they were close to the epicentre, they are ok. Phew.
And thank you to the lovely gals who missed me and checked that I was ok via email xxxxx
But I do have a desk to show....well, the start of something at least. I've been asked to make some personalised bunting so have to get on with it.
Pretty pastel colours help lift the mood. I bought some more butterfly embellishments as I'd run out. I think they're supposed to be for scrapbooking but I remove the sticky pad off the back and carefully sew them on!
There you go, a closer shot. Pretty, aren't they?
I have knitted quite a lot while sitting around in hospital and have just got to lightly steam and block out some pieces.
Some folk asked how our decorating was going on...we're back in our bedroom, hooray!!
Nothing fancy, just simple and calming: I love it. I painted four coats onto the wall to cover up the previous darker colour, using a light reflecting paint. It's worked so well, I keep thinking I've left the light on!
Sorry about the rather downhearted beginning today, I shall leave you with something that made me smile. You may remember I've been knitting stuff for a rescue greyhound charity, including matching owner hats/dog snoods? Well, the organisers emailed me a photo....
A lovely chap called Liam bought this set and wore it all day apparently!! It was so nice to see that what I made is actually of some use and raised some cash :-) Yay. happy dance.
Have a grand week, lovely gals xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
