THANK YOU JUST DOESN'T SEEM ENOUGH....
It's been a week of getting back to normal - well, as normal as is possible in this household! When the weather has allowed, G and I have been walking more, trying to get our stamina back to pre-lurgy levels, I returned to both bands (and literally was all puffed out at the end of the rehearsal!) and we had a lovely family visit at the weekend. So, it's been a good seven days.
One of my WI friends became a great grandmother for the first time last week, so I thought I'd make some named bunting for her new GD. Anwen is a pretty Welsh name!
Pretty pastel colours make me smile :-D It's all wrapped up now and ready to give to my friend Gwen at WI this afternoon.
Someone else on the desks was knitting with this yarn last week and it reminded me that I had a spare ball lurking in the stash so I've just started a new ribbed beanie. I always tend to make this style when the item is destined for charity as rib hats tend to fit most size heads. This is a win win project for me - I adore the bright colours and the chunky yarn knits up so quickly, which satisfies an impatient soul like myself!
I popped into the Range in Carmarthen a couple of days ago in order to buy some tissue paper for a project that I'll share next week. Of course, while I was there, a couple of 'essentials' also leapt into my basket :-D The stripy box is to keep all my cardboard templates in order, the little bows get used a lot for personalised bunting and there is a roll of double sided sticky tape - my first ever - because I'll need it for the tissue project but also with these:
Some more crafty bits and pieces arrived through the post, courtesy of Annie C. I can't believe the amount she sent and am incredibly grateful. I know Annie was having a good clear out of her craftroom anyway but am still bowled over by her generosity. The WI will be having some amazing cards!! Janet, the Treasurer, is a scrapbooker so she is going to help me get started with making cards - we have a few crafty sessions to arrange! Thank you Annie, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness.
WOYWWers are the BEST!! It's a fact.
Hope you all have a wonderful week xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
