…and finding a WIP…
I had almost forgotten this cardigan I started for my Mum. The back and half of one front are done, the sleeves are integral, so it makes sense to finish it for her birthday.
I’m not sure that it’s even been featured on my blog I’ve had it so long! The colour is more accurate in the top photo. Posting this for the pattern.
I’ve also found out what happened to my favourite project bag and first pair of KnitPro Symphonie 4mm needles…
It’s going to be a warm day in Somerset. Before I paint my garden bench blue, lay a few slabs and plant up my garden pots, I’m taking this young lady for a walk! Taken last night when she was giving her best Hard Done By Labrador impression!
I’ve sewn the squares together in strips and now I’m attaching them to each other. Next step the border!
As well as all this owling around I’ve also been working on my garden – with the help of my Mum – I’m not a gardener AT ALL! But I am loving how this flower bed looks:
All my pots are now filled, just need to sweep and tidy the top patio.
Look at these beautiful tulips! They were planted for me by a lovely man last man last October. He’s back on Tuesday to cut my
lawn field and to quote for putting down some paving for my bench in the perfect location to catch the last rays of the summer sun and for a new herb bed. I love my garden but I like being in it, not working in it 😄 – even though I just love reading The Landrover Owner’s Wife‘s blog.
I love how these flowers (which have multiple heads on a stalk unlike shop bought ones) are so beautiful and blowsy!
My two orchids have just flowered! Last year it was on New Year’s Day, this year ten days later. I’m not someone who has much success with plants but these two obviously thrive on being ignored and watered when I think about it! They live on top of much much used tumble dryer as well.
