Evening all! Here we are, Tuesday again and time for Hazel’s Crochet Mood Blanket link party. Very exciting this week as we actually have photographs taken in the daylight. Whoop whoop!
I am so pleased to finally show you the true blanket so far. You can appreciate the subtle differences in colour: the purples (usually school days) from the bright, cheerful shades for happy work days to the dull, lifeless tones for the tired, stressful days. The pinks showing happy days with family and friends and the blues indicating how the weather has affected my mood.
A happy pile of colourful squishiness.
Tonight I made an effort to deal with some of those pesky ends, sewing and snipping to secure them firmly. So boring but a very satisfying job. The overall appearance will be improved ten fold when it is complete.
Today has been a cosy, homely day with lots of cuddles and familiar play. Many books have been read, toy boxes emptied, the track has been carefully assembled and spectacularly demolished. All good fun.
To top it all I even managed to hook a couple of rows on my sister’s ripple blanket (see, my dear, I have not forgotten!).
As well as a lot of stay at home time, we’ve also been living life al-fresco this week, dodging the grey skies and making the most of any break in the weather. Today I chanced upon a notice on the Birmingham Museum and Art Galleries website announcing a visit from a mobile zoo at Blakesley Hall. A cheap, easy outing which would allow us all to have a breath of fresh air and enjoy a spot of outdoor dining.
We demolished the rest of yesterday’s Pizza Soup before tea and scones for dessert (not homemade but you can’t have everything!). A lovely little outing before bedding back down in the warmth of home. x
