Clickety Click

This matinee jacket is for a new kid on the block when it chooses to join us .
A little girl was booked to arrive last Tuesday but at the present time hasn't decided to yet.
again I used King Cole yarn. Melody , a shaded yarn 2,99for a 100 gr ball .
The jacket used about 3/4 of the ball . Excellent value.
I am on the final stretch of finishing 2 bolero's for he 21 month old twins.
Patchwork and quilting on the back burner at present.
After burning my fingers last week they are still tender but a least they did not blister due to the fact I packed ice on the palm of my hand.

Was it a build  op to Friday he 13th//?
On Wednesday I went to the garden centre with bluebell . I didn't close the blinds to keep the sun out of the room . While I was out the sun shone on the magnifier and burned through a loose cover and the arm of the chair .
Today I left the handle of the grill pan over a lit gas ring .
The result is badly burned fingers .
I'm earnestly hoping a third mishap does not occur.

King Cole

Last week I said I would show the 3 cardigans I had knitted using King Cole wool .
It is a shaded yarn called Splash .
I really enjoyed using it .
The two cardi's are for 21 month old twins . the one below is for their 6 year old big sister.
I finished knitting them a week ago but could not get around to finishing the ends and sewing on the buttons
I feel I am now on the winning side with the gardening . It is looking good
Well! tomorrow is another day and no doubt the merry go round will start all over again.

Wednesday 4 June 2014

I'm so pleased I did the gardening yesterday . Today it was raining when I got up this morning , it is still raining at 7 tonight.
I have spent the day knitting, If I can find the right buttons I will show the 3 cardigans tomorrow.
It will be later in the week I I have to go to town to buy buttons .
It was quite nice to sit knitting .
I also did cooking of food that will do for lunch or dinner . Now stored in the freezer.
If the weather is fine tomorrow I have to spread 3 bags of soil conditioner around my flowers.
The quilt I'm showing was made about 15 years ago .
I'm very fond of this quilt , no pattern , just made up as I went along.
