CAL Spring Flowers and Lurgy!

Hello to you.
By heck is it Thursday again already? Really? Where does the time go?
The up-side of time passing by quickly is that January is nearly over... hooray!
Soon, it will be February when I have six Birthdays to make and buy for... Oh well, it will keep me busy I'm sure.
I'm crocheting along again this week with lovely Marianne and Chrissie 

Chrissie Crafts

I've finished my patch work bag hooray!
I went off on my own once I'd got the jist of the pattern.
I lined the bag with some vintage fabric I had from a charity shop.
I'm very pleased with how it's turned out. I haven't taken it out on an outing yet but will do soon!

Also this week I have been hooking away on a scarf and come to the end of that...
This was a lovely project, made in Stylecraft pomegranate for the main part. The squares are made from Stylecraft special DK yarn, also aspen, pale rose and turquoise.

Thought I'd show you what it looks like on my dummy!

You may ask the reason, why I am not modelling the scarf? Well, I have the lurgy so I'm far too pale and coughy to put my face anywhere at the moment. I hope it clears away soon - the housework is mounting up as I type...!
I've been lucky enough to fill my house with beautiful spring flowers thanks to my partner, myself and a friend  It's been a good flower week. The tulips on the kitchen table have just got to that twisty bendy stage - I love it when they do that!

Hope you're all well and keeping germ free?
Have a lovely end to the week and weekend.

  3. I love that bag FB - and rather fancy one myself! I really like how it has some body to it and looks like it will hold its shape - well done! And well done too on the lovely scarf - isn't that pomegranate a lovely colour - but it reminds me that I still have my ripple blanket waiting to be finished, oh dear!!! How wonderful your flowers - they always bring their own sunshine, which is what you need a good dose of for you're taking on too many nasty lurgies these days; I do hope you soon recover - even if only to keep up with the never-ending household chores, haha!!! Sounds like you have a very busy month coming up - enjoy it and I'll be looking forward to seeing what those clever hands of yours create for gifts! Happy days to you and yours, Love, Joy xo

    1. I think you should make one for yourself! Yes I like the pomegranate is a lovely bright colour. I know I dont usually catch any bugs but recently seem to be getting lots.
      Hope your well and have been enjoying a good week so far xx
