•Well what a busy week it has been at school, so much to do with it being the end of term and the school year. But, hey ho, I've always got the •CoLoUrFuL• excitement of my new blanket project and the array of jewel-like colours I'm mixing in my Sunshine Granny Square Blanket.
They really do look •BeAuTiFuL• ;-)
We've been working on the garden too and J has built me a wonderful Pergola/Arch for some climbers.
I'm looking forward to sorting out which plants to buy so that I get fragrance and colour. A clematis, climbing rose and some sweet peas are my first choice, but I'll have a look in the good old garden centre and see. I've also got some Rainbow Mixture bulbs to plant around it in the autumn. (Must remember to fill up the birdfeeder by the looks of it, they're so hungry those Chaffinches!
So I've been to the garden centre to look for plants but unfortunatley rain stopped play ;-( On the flip side it means I get to do more of my granny squares for Sunshine Blanket, and did a bit of sneaky baking too so that J, E and Little/Big J had some snacks and yummy, scrummy butterfly buns. Don't think they'll last long!
Its amazing what you can get done in about half an hour, that's one of the benefits of •PuRpLe AgA• being on all day long, as well as a cosy warm kitchen in cold rainy Cumbria, especiallly today. Although I love where I live, I can't help feeling the sunny spell that we've just had, may have been our chance at summer!
I do love my •PuRpLe AgA•!
• Oh well, If that was summer maybe I should get back to Sunshine Blanket for a cheer-me-up and prepare for the long, dark, cold winter ahead! I've had such a positive response from friends and family about my blankets I think I should stock up on yarn and get prepared for some sustained yarn-bombing!
Happy days again! ;-)
