Spring is here, maybe?
All afternoon I have heard gardening equipment and children outside. I am sure that is a sign of spring and I can only hope. We walked into town this morning to get some things for DD's school trip next week (where am I supposed to find wool socks for children? Could only find mens socks that fitted the description, nothing for women or children!) and it was quite warm. By the time we got back I was hot and hurt. I have blisters on my ankles (well, they started on Thursday) and I am tired, but we got our things and I could relax for the rest of the day. I did my Christmas Cal commitments, so here are updated pictures of the bus cuddle and DD's filet blanket for her birthday. I have a hard time putting it down once I get into the rhythm, I am enjoying making it and I love working with the yarn I was given. I have started making a top for DD, she is deciding on what she wants and I am making it. I am about half way with the swinging part of the top and then it is just the shoulder straps to make. It can be worn on it's own or over a t-shirt or long sleeve top if it is a cooler day. The other baby things are just some more to add to my stock collection. I had to hand in my business plan on Thursday and R was very impressed with it. I am now just waiting to find out about having a stall at the Spring fair as my first "gig". :) Also are the two hats I had to finish off for the school trip next week. I still have to make two pairs of mittens, but I am going to make these, which are quick and easy to make.
And in case you are wondering, I took the picture of the biscuit tin OPEN to show that I am not sitting eating biscuits while I am working (I saw the tin in a corner of one of the photos), it is actually the tin I use to keep my buttons in.
