You have no idea how excited I was here on Saturday night. I was very pleased with myself. So pleased, that you may just have heard my delight many miles away. You see, I managed to follow Lucy's pattern and make my very first crochet flower. I still get very excited when I have a little think back to that evening. Oh, it was quite glorious!
I looked over at my husband and I said "You are going to be very impressed when you see what I've nearly done", and he replied, eyeing up the wool and hook, "Now don't be too disappointed if I'm not". Well, husband's sometimes!! They just don't get it, do they? Never mind, I know you've been there before and can probably imagine how I was feeling. Ooh it's a lovely feeling isn't it?
See the first pretty little flower? I was having quite a bit of fun so I made...
...yes, two pretty little flowers!
Well why stop there! Look, seven little flowers all in a flower shape.
Doesn't it look lovely inside my Granny Square?
And two Grannies with flowers!
Now I'm in a bit of a quandary. Do I make my blanket with flowers as well now? I think so. But I've seen another cushion that looks even better and now I want many more coloured wools to make a multi coloured blanket. So, do I keep these and make a cushion, then start over and do the blanket? I just don't know and it's starting to do my head in!! And I've got soooo many other projects I'm working on too.
Well, what a weekend we have had! It really started with Funday Friday (I just couldn't wait to show you my flowers). I had decided that we would all go to the supermarket and each choose our favourite dessert item. And after our usual Fish and Chip tea, we would open all the items and share them.
The girls all had so much fun trying to decide what to buy. It didn't help that someone's choice was sold out! So, after quite some time in the supermarket, we walked out with six scrumptious items. Well, come on, Mummy and Daddy need to play too! The ice blocks weren't exactly what I was expecting, but any how. We pretty much only ate what we individually chose, well why not. Oh, while taking the photo for my blog, I managed to knock the cherry tin over. Just fabulous!
The evening got even better yet! We piled the girls into the car and drove into the big city. With all the street lamps lit, and the car lights on, we drove down Queen Street to see the Town Hall.
OK, it wasn't quite what we were expecting. I thought there were actually going to be lights on the town hall, when it turned out to be projected lighting instead. Not as bright and exciting as we'd been led to believe.
Still, it was fun going out so late and seeing all the pretty lights, in the dark. I hope you all had a great weekend too.
