Well this week has been a bit crazy, and I don't seem to have had a minute to myself. It's been totally dominated with work, trying to juggle both Mothers day and Easter seasons. I seemed to end up doing something work orientated even on days off, and it was a long tiring weekend.
On top of that poor hubby has been laid up with a swollen and painful knee, which got so intense that it required paramedics to take him to hospital Saturday night...
I've put the cushion and the owl on the back burner for now. I will do a bit of joining here and there and eventually get to my 'ta dah' moment. And poor Owlie won't get his moment of glory until I manage to find my stuffing!!
So this week I decided to dig out another abandoned WIP my lovely Attic24 ripple cushion (just waded through the blog archive to find it was well over a year ago! blimey!)
I've enjoyed coming back to this one and it works up quite quickly. The only issue is after using soft, squidgy acrylic i'm finding the cotton quite hard going for my fingers.
I also started a new little project, as everything is part way through, I had nothing that was portable, which I need to take to work or on trains. I have some lovely multi-coloured drops yarn that I had picked up from the knitting and stitch show last year, purely because I loved the colour.
I'm doing traditional grannies with them, and it will make a lovely soft, light-weight scarf. Its strange to get used to such a fine yarn, but i'm hoping it will look beautiful when it's worked up.
This weeks mood square is a bit dark!
Tiredness, stress, no relaxation or me time, trying to fit in shopping, cooking and looking after hubby =
grey, maroon, dark blue, bottle green...
Here's to a better week, and brighter colours...
