I had hoped to have a picture of the finished Lotus Moon Tile Afghan, this post, but it is not to be, silly person that I am I forgot that there were triangles to do to make the sides straight. I sat down to do them yesterday and realised I didn’t have enough white, and the shop where I get that particular wool is closed on Saturdays! Lucky the deadline is next Friday, lol.
So that gave me an opportunity to start my next CAL, The Julie YeagerSweet Pea Mystery ‘Ghan.
My inspiration is a watercolour I did earlier in the year, I love water colour as you can get the colours to merger into each other as the petals of sweet peas do.
I have spent ages trying work out my colour scheme and in the end decided to use a long variegated wool and a silver grey as the main.
So here is week 1 clues, they come out on Wednesdays/Thursdays, so it is a nice feeling not to be lagging behind as I usually am.
During the week I dragged out another UFO, Colourful City Bag, a project bag that was part of a Cal on the Colouirful Cals group on Ravelry. I am dreadful at doing the finishing touches of projects as I am eager to get on to the next project, but I want to keep my Sweet Pea Bits and Pieces in it.
I have to line and sew the zip in and add handles, so quite a quick job really, I made a butterfly to pin to the side as I felt it needed something to match the lettering.
I don’t know if I have said that I love vintage doilies, while I was in town last week I came across these in a local charity shop, all for $2.
Of course I had to get started on one, I think I will do the whole set. Will make a wonderful gift for a family member who is into vintage china.
Well that is it for today, and I will finish the Lotus Moon this week or I will be trouble, as Kendal wants it for her birthday sleepover!
Here is a very early rose poking its head through the shrubbery! A promise of Summer.
See you next time and have a wonderful week.
