I've really been enjoying making a pot of tea in the afternoons and taking the time to have a couple of cups of tea. I've also decided that I really want to make another couple of tea cosies...despite G protesting that there's really no need!
Miss M and I are looking forward to The Great British Bake Off starting again this week! We both enjoy it so much and love watching it together. This year, we have set ourselves a little challenge to try to bake something new each week. Our own little Bake Off challenge!
I finally bought a hydrangea to plant in the garden. I've wanted one for ages and kept meaning to get one each year so I'm glad I've eventually done it. G has planted it for me and I'm hoping that as long as I only admire it and not touch it (I have a bad track record with plants of any kind!) it should do okay in the garden.
Do you like my tiny little house ornament? My mum and Miss M gave it to me as a little gift and it's so cute, I really love it.
As usual, there is some crochet on the go here. I bought some new yarn for my Island blanket which I started on holiday and will talk more about another time. I'm using Stylecraft Life DK in mint again...I'm obsessed with this colour at the moment. I also have another Sugar & Spice cardigan on my hook at the moment, this time for my 3 year old niece. This will be the 4th time I've used this pattern! Needless to say, I love it. I also have a little baby dress in the softest pink on the go for my friends wee girl. I'm really hoping this works out as if it does I can see me making more of them as gifts.
So...quite a long post from me for a change! Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my melon-mint bag I appreciate them so much :-)
Wishing you all a lovely week!
