Didn't feel like getting up this morning when I heard the rain beating on my windows, but now the sun has been spotted peeping out from behind the clouds and there is a smattering of blue sky. I've taken a photo as it's such an event.
A lot has happened this week.
My friend's husband came round yesterday and pruned my apple tree. I've no before photo but there is a lot more light around in my garden and some bewildered pigeons.
Thursday class went well and we discussed Amigurumi. Research led me to discover that it has only been popular since 2003. It's one of the projects I like to make as it is good at using up your small scraps of wool.
I've also signed up for Ravelry, loads of patterns and ideas for knitting and crochet, as well as Pinterest where there is so much lovely stuff.
I've also taken a mighty jump and put some items in my Folksy shop. I opened the shop last year with a couple of items, but have never sold anything. Now I have more time on my hands I have taken the decision to add more stuff. I think that making things to order may be too stressful for me at the moment so I will just put things in the shop that I make as I go along. I feel like this is a brave decision for me, but if you are not out there, they don't come knocking at your door.
I've also had time to do some stitching today, to join in with Chrissie's stitching Sundays. But this is something different - have you heard of punch needle. I received a kit as a gift several years ago and have managed to finish it today. It was very quick and easy to do.
This is the back.
Making samples of tunisian crochet for the class this week has also taken up some of my time.
Hope you have a great week.
