I'm sitting in the sun writing this, yes the sun.....that big yellow round loveliness, that hangs in the sky! Little seen here this week, so at every opportunity I'm out in it!
Taking of opportunities, I now have the opportunity to add even more colour into my life. Learning how to crochet is opening up a new world....I'm giddy with the possibilities, the combinations I will be able to conjure up!
I can now match my crochet with my household trays....if I so wish!
I'm gleeful, I'm giddy....happy, happy, happy. There still so much to learn but I'm on my way. Think I need to 'block' this, I don't yet know about blocking, I know it involves pins and steam/water.....and I know it improves the look of your crochet, anything that improves the look sounds good to me!
I've completed some on these, I could hardly contain myself when I'd done one! Emailed out very poor photos to Bloggy people, it was dark, so photos weren't brilliant! (Sorry Bloggy people!) I went around next door to show my neighbour, it's ok, I've a reputation of being bonkers, so no one bats an eye around here!
Annie and Gillian, have been writing about colour recently, it makes great reading if you get the chance. It got me thinking about colour and what I love about colour.
Colour has a profound effect on me, it really does touch my soul. Colour can change my mood, lift me, calm me....make me happy or sad. I need colour in my life, it's an integral part of who I am.
My home is a colourful home. Like Gillian, I can't say I have a favourite colour, I slip in and out of love with particular shades. This can depend on mood, the seasons, anything really. You could say I'm fickle!
I've bought some yarn, all in the sale...£2.00 a ball, wool and cotton!
This is all Rowan, I couldn't believe it when I saw it, especially after my Yearning for Yarn lament recently! 'Thank you' to the powers that be for making sure I was in the right place at the right time. These colours will be perfect for my living room!
And so I'm sitting in my warm, sunny garden, crocheting away...
Pleased that I can follow at pattern, well almost, this Sunburst Flower square isn't quite right, but I'm ok with that, it will still go into my blanket, which I know won't be perfect......but it will be very colourful! sunburst Flower Square Blanket....I'm now ready for you!
Thanks for all your wonderful comments on my last post, you are all so supportive.
I hope I don't loose too many of you when Google Reader finishes tomorrow, I'm just wondering what will happen! It's a bit like when we entered the new millennium....all sorts of stuff was going to happen! Anyway I'm on Bloglovin if you still want to follow me ( and my crochet endeavours!).
I think that I will also stop selling my wallpapers by the metre soon too. They are incredibly expensive to send and I've been losing on postage, I will continue for the next couple of weeks, until our holiday (so excited about that one, our first 'proper holiday in a few years, just hope the sun shines a little bit!).
I will be back early next week, it's almost a year since I started this little blog so I'm conjuring up a very colourful giveaway....just to celebrate!
Bye for now,
Ada :) xxx
