Thanks to whoever linked earlier when my internet connection was down.
WOYWW 147 and it's the best of work desks for me this week as mine is in the local park along with my gorgeous little Fraulein visiting with her Mamma from Germany. My old strawberry desk cover comes in handy once again and
I sat in the glorious sunshine doing my crochet whilst we all enjoyed a dolly's picnic... Bliss! Hop over to stamping ground to see the product of Julia's original idea to share the secrets of our crafting spaces. The biggest snoop on the net!
I was so thrilled to receive my blog candy prize from fellow WOYWWer Vickie Okienurse and it was as good as Christmas! Thanks so much Vickie for your generosity and, as it can be seen from the picture below, there was so much in my box of goodies. Buttons, brads, matching papers, ribbons, trims, diamantes, canvases, brushes, oil paint set, scrapbook pack, etc., etc., and a super card too. It really is worth a good snoop so I've made the picture large!
Vickie had a post it note inside stating "Grand Prize" and it certainly is just that!
I began, at the beginning of March, to crochet squares to make an Afghan blanket after reading how just one square a day will result in 365 over a year ... enough for a blanket. I take my crochet everywhere and make them in the car, waiting rooms, watching TV... all otherwise wasted time. I have as a result completed 95 (and a half) in 25 days... all bagged in tens ready for the mammoth task of joining into a blanket...... eventually!
With this magnificent magnolia overhead and the little one happy pouring our "tea" it was precious time in the park.
Thanks to everyone who commented last week knowing I couldn't return your kindness but I'll have a couple of days this week before the Brighton Belles arrive so I will be visiting as many as possible.
