Started the week with my old washing machine breaking down. Chose to do something to cheer me up and decided to make a frog for my son’s 26th at the end of the week.
Didn’t finish it on time. However I did get good news at my Knit & Natter group. Turns out the Velindre Chicks I made were a huge success due to the variety of types I had done.
Then today the toaster blew all the fuses in the kitchen as it too gave up the ghost 😦 Decided to finish making squares for the Woolly Weekend that my daughter got me involved with and went to message her via my Kindle Fire only to realise it hadn’t recharged because it too has broken 😦
Good news is I managed to get some more hats for Age Concern finished as well as using up almost all the wool my daughter gave me for the squares.
I am dreading to think what tomorrow will bring as I am going to attempt to do a roast pork with crackling – that was always my late husband’s area of expertise not mine. I’m hoping to get a positive result and that the bad luck is done, especially now that I have had three things break down.
Meanwhile I will cheer myself up by letting everyone admire my productivity of the week 😀
Blanket #5 for SMT. This one is made using crocheted squares I had made 3 years ago for my late husband’s powerchair lapghan. I had never had the courage to face using them until now, but Monday would have been his 64th birthday and, after surviving the grief that day brought, I felt better able to let them go to a worthy cause.
So I just finished blanket #4 for SMT with 7,140 trebles to add to the total (as of yesterday) of 31,422,683 trebles.
I also had a lovely phone call from my friend to thank me for the owl trivet. According to her it’s far too nice to hide away until needed so she has it hanging up on a cabinet door. She has promised to actually use it for the intended purpose though.
Here’s a few pics of the blanket if you are interested.
