In my perfect world I crochet and knit all day and some wonderful fairy cleans my house, weeds the garden and feeds the family, in reality none of the above is true.
In actual fact I am to be seen tearing around the house, trying my best to keep it clean and tidy when in essence all I do is move one pile from one room to another or if I am feeling particularly energetic I shove one of the numerous piles into a drawer or cupboard hoping no none but especially me, will need to open the draw or cupboard for fear of the drawer becoming wedged and having to frantically shove it the centimetre or two back and forth and trap ones hand in at the top. Of course then there is the cupboard door that one opens in trepidation weary that opening it quickly will result in everything falling to the floor. Hopefully I have learnt if I open it slowly I can often hold onto the items with one hand stopping them from falling and needing to be sorted and manage to extrapolate the required item. Know what I am talking about? No! Oh well it's just me then...
So onto my perfect world where I knit and crochet all day...
|The Scheepjes Cal is proving to be so much fun. |
Week 10 was how to make crochet look like knitting!
|Week 11 was called dancing bobbles|
Following others patterns is fun and I learn heaps in the process, there are so many different ways to create the same thing that it all adds to the experience and makes one more adventurous. So much so that for some while I have been designing my own creations BUT my latest is proving to be either too ambitious or I am not feeling it. The design has been on and off for months now and we are having a battle of wills whereby it tells me I am useless at putting stitches together and I scream back that it is too touchy, the project yells back at me that I have no idea about tension. At this point I strop off in a huff and fling said project into a corner. Until I hear it whimpering and begging for attention again a few days later whereby we start our tirade of abuse towards each other. Anyone else recognise this? No! Oh well, that's me all alone again ...
|Starting well and I am sure I will |
finish this design in no time
|Using Rico cotton and loving the stitch definition|
|ARGHHHHHHH, and not for the first time on this design|
Elsewhere in my life...
|A quick dash into the capitol this week to sort |
out a visa and spied this wonderful piece of graffiti art
|In honour of Wimbledon I made |
a Pimms Cake for the crochet class
And finally today is July 1st and the sun shone briefly this morning just so we could have a quick breakfast outside before the children had to dash to school...
|The sun shone for the first time |
in a long while, it called for waffles
Joining in with Amy sharing my Five with you this week
and hoping the sun stays with us now for the summer...
It would appear that ALL my comments on any WordPress blog end up in SPAM. This does not happen to any other blogging platform and so know that I will make comments on WP but that you may need to look and retrieve from SPAM. I have tested this out with one WP blogger and this is the case, she retrieves my comment and then it does turn up on her blogs comments, but be aware, despite having retrieved it any subsequent comments I make still go to spam
and she needs to retrieve them! Such a PAIN!
