before i hoppity skip to a 'day at the office' several things to note...
note one: when thinking up a cunning plan to make peace with ones man in the way of a marmalade sandwich, t'would be wise to actually check the larder cupboard first. upon inspection just now, i see it is bare of marmalade. on closer inspection of what else i can rustle up apart from my chocolate spread, i have spied a lettuce leaf destined for Speedy the Tortoise. now i am torn between Speedy having his breakfast and my man being offered a lettuce 'peace' sandwich
note two: my 'simply sampler' blanket is coming along a treat, albeit slowly. i have noted it is going a little wonky in places but i am thinking this will add 'charm' to the finished sweetie. however if you are waiting on me to do a bobbly how-to i fear the wait maybe longer than you may wish to sit and twiddly your Mr Hook. but no worries, for the lovely Cuckoo has done a marvelous job at showing us all how to achieve a lovely bobbly crochet. i am actually in awe of her fabby tutorial because not only has she done a tres peachy job of it but Cuckoo wrote this with babe in arms, and i am talking about a few days old babe in arms with little ones running around too! i think that is brilliantly brilliant and worthy of a gold sticky star in my books
note three: i am not one for buying US magazines often, however there is one magazine i have come across recently which i must tell you has me rather giddy. it is called Anthology and features creative and inspiring folks and interiors with soul. every page is a treat to look at and it is beautifully presented. i am most happy to have found a US magazine which ticks all the right boxes for me
note four: i noted this morning around the same time as noting my lack of marmalade, that Little Olive and her crocheted blanket have become the best of friends and seeing her all slightly 'tubby' in her little nest of crocheted goodness makes me smile. nothing quite like a furry friend.
she is thanking you kindly for the lovely comments this week and wishing you a little bit of happy for the weekend ~ Tif
