Five on Friday
Hello, I'm joining in with Amy's Five on Friday again. A random round up if you like -
A finished quilt top, hastily photographed last night after Mike had taken Rocky hound out for his evening walk. It was hastily snapped because a) I wanted to include it in today's post & b) Mike thinks I'm a prat for taking photographs of random things to stick on my blog. It's meant to be a heart shaped but I haven't photographed it particularly well, as usual! I shall do a post on it by itself one day, when it's completed.
My crochet blanket, well some of it, it's blinking huge! Mike bought me a pack of this yarn for Christmas a couple of years back. The idea of crocheting a big blanket scared me, silly really. I can do a small granny square but decided enough was enough & got on with it. Once I got past the scary foundation chain & the first couple of rows it was quite easy, I'm going to make another. The crafty ones out there will recognise it as an Attic 24 granny stripe.
I like it folded up too!
I am officially old, I went to pick up my new specs last week. A pair for seeing & a pair for reading & took my chance as Mike was parking the car or trying to find a parking space that is! I darted into my favourite charity shop. It's one of those proper charity shops, you know - the scruffy ones. I have a holy grail of things I want to find in a charity shop I have the first two now, a rose bowl & dressing table set. I'm now after a turquoise glass soda syphon & a rumtopf jar. Perhaps they will be there on my next visit.
A small sack of dahlia tubers. I am still undecided where to plant them. I had first planned to put them amongst the fruit bushes in the back garden but now I have my new border in the front they may go there.
I was trying to snap the plum blossoms against the blue sky yesterday evening when I heard an extremely loud buzzing noise. This bee was huge, much much bigger than it looks, I'm only small I thought it might try & carry me off at one point! I like bumble bees, we used to have a nest in the garden many years ago so I spent a good while watching this one.
So there you go my dears, some random fives. There is a linky up thing over at Amy's blog should you wish to join up or see what other bloggers have been posting.
As always enjoy your day xx
