Hi all. Sorry for the delay in updating - I had an unexpected, and very welcome, long w/e away. It was a bonus as the kids all had an inset day yesterday - why on earth schools can't make their inset days on the same day in the same area, I don't know.
Anyhow, I was going to blog about crochet today, but I'll save that for tomorrow. Because just look what arrived in the post this morning.
It's the shawl that I won from Angel's giveaway. If you haven't checked out Angel's blog, it's worth spending some time there as this is one of the planet's funniest people! (And a complete nutcase to boot!) I've been pleading for a picture, so she also sent me (which I've had to frame):
So she's obviously thin as a rake! I also spotted one of her feet in a picture somewhere - she has 5 toes (though she denied it was her, claiming it was a 108 year old relative or something).
And one more picture:
The duck wanted in, so he got in. The cushion just felt decorative. I absolutely love it: the colours have a gold shimmer that doesn't really show up on camera. I wanted to show it on grass, but it's pouring down with rain, so that's impossible.
And a taster for what is coming tomorrow:
That's all for now. Thanks so much for comments. I absolutely love reading them.
