Were you beginning to wonder if I was still alive? I haven’t popped in for a whole week and I must say, I have missed you all! I love to read your lovely comments with my morning coffee, but if I don’t write a post, you have nothing to comment on, so I am greatly looking forward to my morning coffee-comment fest tomorrow! I’ve been a bit blue lately, it set in at the end of the week, not sad blue, more uncomfortable blue, like all was not right in my world… It started on Friday night when I got home from class after handing in the essay I finally finished, I tried to knit socks but they weren’t fixing me, so I hunted through my stash and found some loving, healing colours and started hooking some granny squares. I didn’t feel better immediately, but having two days off with KB has made life a lot brighter and put things into perspective for me, so here I am, feeling fit to face the world again!
We have had an amazing weekend…
The weather has been perfection and we’ve spent it marketing, shopping, beaching, bush walking and eating….
We went out for a celebration lunch and tasted the best pizza in the world… it was perfection in pizza form…
Poor KB was complaining as I took this picture about having to wait for a blog photo to be taken before she could eat…
And as we arrived home yesterday afternoon, I got quite excited about coming home to my grannies and cups of tea!
It has been aaaaages since I’ve made a granny square cushion… I’ve made about 15 of them, so it’s understandable that I’m not still churning them out! But I do love making them, and as I hooked and hooked, I started to feel better. There is definitely something therapeutic in the granny square.
(By the way, I know this pattern is in circulation but I didn’t use a pattern for these so don’t know the link to one… I’ve seen some lovely projects made from this square so if you know the link it would be awesome if you could please pop it in a comment in case anyone wants to make some… thank you!!!)
I finished it this morning, and am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo in love with it I’m planning another one in different colours… note to self (or KB) make more room on the day bed because I’m on another cushion jag, OR alternatively, move into a bigger house.
But of course it must pass quality control…
And Himself is quite pleased with the results too… thank goodness!
Speaking of Himself, it’s his tea time and I’m off for a walk before it gets too dark! I’ll be back soon though, KB has taken plenty of photos of FOs I’ve been wanting to share, so I’ll pop in again before you know it! Meanwhile, what have you been up to lately? I’ve only had a tiny bit of time to visit my blog friends this week, so I’m looking forward to seeing what you’ve all been making….
Wishing you a beautiful day!
