By way of celebration I went a thrifting. It was all very unsatisfactory other than a quick break for a coffee and a much awaited for mince pie (served hot and with cream).
I did, however, find a stool. Now the problem I have is that I do have a ridiculous amount of little stools, I may even count them and give an exact figure just to highlight how bad the problem has become. After much deliberation (a few seconds) I purchased the stool anyway.
It is a tulip stool (Sophie, you already know this I realise). It is in a test position at the moment as I have had to move my very special mustard stool to make space. We will see!!
I do like it, very much.
I have also been at the crochet again. I managed 4 granny squares before needing a break.
They need pressing and they also need bigger corner chains I think, advice very welcome.
I will do something with them as it is nice to look back at things you made when an amateur.
I have also made a headband. I have very short hair and I get very cold ears.
Sorry about the model, and yes my nose is that big.
I attached one of my previously blogged about corsages to 'jazz it up a bit' and detract from aforementioned large nose.
I am currently working on a red and cream version with a frill. I am quite enjoying using 2 yarns together to make a mottled effect.
Lastly, before you fall asleep reading this, I also 'jazzed' up my desk. It was given to me by my auntie and it is pine. I decided against painting it as I do have a lot of painted wood in my living room. I needed to do something with it, obviously, so I purchased a piece of oil cloth and .......
'Jazzed up' desk. I am very happy with the makeover. Just need to find some pretty knobs for the drawers now.
Back to the crochet I go. X
