today i am a very happy chappy indeed and its all thanks to a lovely lady called Glor who has become my first ever follower. thankyou Glor from Crochet galore you have really made my day. your blog is a real pleasure to read and like many of the other blogs i read your post are always uplifting and inspiring. i hope you are also having a really lovely day and that the sun is shining for you.
i have been taking advantage of this lovely spring weather to sit outside in the garden and do a spot of lovely knitting. there is nothing better for the soul than sitting knitting listening to the sounds of the garden. i recently received a parcel of lovelyness from amazon. how exciting is it to get a parcel through the post. one of the books i had ordered was 20 Knitted Flowers by Susie Johns. all very simple patterns to follow and knit up very quickley. ive made two sweet williams which i think i may give to my mum for easter. shes coming to mine tomorrow for an easter day lunch of roast lamb with all the trimmings.
im really please with how they have turned out. i sewed some matching buttons on and glued clasps to the back and hey presto a pretty adornment for my lovely mum to enjoy.
me and hubby took chocolate charlie out for a walk in the woods this afternoon. we use the woods on very hot days because its just to hot for charlie and he starts puffing and panting. the woods by me are wonderful at the moment, lovely and cool with deep green dappled shade and a carpet of wild garlic which is at its best right now. we pick some of the leaves to pop into our teatime salads quite often but not tonight.... oh no.... because tonight is saturday night and saturday nights are all about easy suppers, usually a takeaway and a bottle of wine.
i popped into my local town this morning to have a browse around the saturday farmers market which always has a good atmosphere at this time of year. in fact next to christmas, easter is usually the busiest market day. i spent a very happy half an hour browsing in the yarn and sewing shop and look what i just couldnt resist.
i hope you are all having a wonderful easter weekend and not eating to many easter eggs.... he he enjoy if you are. Melanie x
