A Year of Projects Update - week 43

 We have come to the end of the Easter holidays.  The second week has gone by so quickly.   I have made a certain amount of progress.

I have made one cushion cover and the cushion is now being used by Daniel.

I am onto the bottom ribbing on Takumi which I hope to finish by the end of the day.  Then I only have the ties and sleeves. 

I also finished Saguaro and although I think I have used the wrong fabric I am going to make some tweaks and I think I will like it!

I have been listening to audio books this last week.  I have managed to finish Lessons in Chemistry and then skipped through The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry.  Both books were brilliant and so I am now listening to The Man Who Died Twice.

We went out in the week for a meal for my birthday which was lovely.   

And we went to London zoo which was a trip on a whim - Thomas wanted to go so we took advantage!

I hope everyone has a great week- we will be looking forward to the next Bank Holiday!

A Year of Projects Update - week 42

 It has been a good week. Me and Daniel spent the best part of the week with mum and dad.   It was birthday in the week, so I  took the opportunity to have a couple of afternoon teas - yes a couple.  One of my 50 things this year was to have an afternoon tea with my school friend that lives near mum and dad.   And another was to get 50 pictures with friends. 

So I was able to tick off a couple of things!

Project wise I am still making my way through Takumi. 

I am now making my way down to the ribbing.

I have also bought 6 large cushion pads with the aim of making 6 covers from my scraps which I have cut into many squares!

I have also dug out a pair of Christmas socks that I am now coming on well with - now past the heel. 

I have been making progress on Saguaro and hopefully should be finished by next week. 

We have one more week at home and have a few plans but we will see what happens over the week.

Anyhow let's see how the week pans out!  Have a good week everyone 😊

A Year of Projects Update - week 41

 We have reached the start of the Easter holidays!  

Me and Daniel went for  nice walk yesterday and saw the first of the ducklings on yhe pond near our home.

I have made some progress on my Saguaro 

It needsa press, hemming and a look at the centre ties - but otherwise that bit is done!  O will move onto the trousers later. 

I have also been progressing on Takumi 

I am now making my way down the fronts with Skein Queen yarn until I get to the ties.

I am going to take this project with me as me and Daniel are going to go to visit my mum and dad tomorrow so am hoping to do lots more over the next week.

I think that is all for this week - hopefully I will have lots for next week. 

I hope everyone has a great week.
