new WIP’s

I found this pic on Pinterest a few weeks ago and thought how lovely it was 
I did buy Christmas colour yarn before lockdown in preparation for the perfect project 
And I decided that this was it 

Even though hour Christmas is during our summer I thought it would look nice on a back of the couch 

Here is the start of it 
The squares are not very big as I didn’t want to run out in the middle of the project 
If the pattern doesn’t make a big enough blanket I can put a decent boarder at the end 

I actually love just this bit. I’ve decided that once the stores open I’ll buy more yarn and make a Christmas blanket 
Made up with bigger squares with just this pattern 
But that’s for another day 

Hubby has filled my wicking beds and they are now ready to be planted up 
We have had a few frosty morning so I’ll wait a little longer and then plant them out 

Still don’t have a date for coming out of lockdown 
It’s definitely wearing thin now we are all just sick and tired of it 
Hopefully as the numbers of vaccinated people go up we will be released 
To live our lives again 

In the meantime 
Stay safe and well 
See ya 


  1. That xmas rug is going to be fabulous - we are still marvelling at how fast you produce stuff. That garden is going to look so good. Tigger says it needs rhubarb with great big shade-providing leaves for cats and small dogs to nap under in summer. (And F says it makes great jam with strawberries, or with ginger)

    1. I’ve never grown rhubarb. I might just give it a go. Thanks for the idea

  2. I am so looking forward to our first frost. Menopause and hot weather are not good friends, let me tell you!!
