Hello and welcome!!!!
I hope you’re having a great day, or have had one and are about to head off to bed!!! It’s 10.30am here, and I’m sitting in the sunshine, wearing *gasp* a SUMMER DRESS, feeling deeply relaxed! I’m seeing so many beautiful pictures of the seasons changing in the Northern Hemisphere, the leaves, the frosts, the fires being lit, and I feel a teeny bit guilty at posting pictures of beautiful spring blossoms and talking about the gorgeous sunshine, but remembering that in six months time, the tables will be turned!
Aren’t these blossoms just amazing???? I took these pictures in Turangi, where blossom trees are in abundance and the blossoms are just so thick and luscious I was amazed and couldn’t stop taking pictures of them…..
I love the way the trees which have been bare for months are now covered in little eeny-weeny light green leaves…..
The Count enjoyed hearing the comments about how good he looked in his cape…. He seems to have recovered from the ordeal, however the cape is still downstairs, so I’m sure this is not over for him…..
Do you remember me starting the Queen Anne’s Lace Scarf a couple of weeks ago??? Every time I pop into Ravelry I see it there, listed as a WIP even though I finished it a while ago, so today, in honour of this blue, blue sky, I thought I had better post the finished result!
Remember I made it from some delicious Touchyarn wool that I bought with a gift voucher from my sister?
It was a nice big 200gm hank and I had no idea what to do with it, but was completely captivated by the colour, so was compelled to buy it and have had it in my stash for a couple of months.
I finished the scarf and still have HEAPS of this wool left, oh JOY!
I’m thinking now…. that would make some great arm warmers! (Somebody stop me with these!!!!!) So that leftover is back in the stash bag of “special” wool, and the scarf is happily around my neck frequently!
I’m lucky I still have it actually, I wore it to Turangi and noticed KB’s mother stroking it a little too lovingly one night when it was hanging off the chair!
I made it super long because I wanted it to wrap around my neck three times….. 94 motifs in total, and I’m so pleased I lasted the distance with it, because I like it much more than my shorter red one…..
If you haven’t started one yet, pattern is HERE and I can’t wait to see yours!
Loving that green view from our deck right now……
OK then wonderful people and lovely commenters! I’m off, I have to pop down to the mechanics…. some lovely person tried to pinch my car on Saturday…. popped the passenger lock right out and now theres a big hole there, I’m hoping our favourite mechanic might be able to magically fix it without calling in the panelbeaters!!!
Wish me luck! And don’t even ASK what is up with me and cars right now please!!!!!!!!!!
Sending beautiful thoughts your way,
