Busy bee!!

Goodness its been a busy week! Hope you all had a lovely Mothers' Day! I was lucky enough to receive some scrummy chocs and a dvd - i wanted to see this film when it came out but as usual just didn't get round to it! My eldest son bought me a book token, which he thinks is totally boring, but knows that i love - however he drove all the way over on Sunday afternoon and only when he got out of the car did he realise that he'd left my card and present at home!!! The others are never going to let him forget that one!!

I've spent most of my time, when not doing horse stuff - which in the winter months takes up a lot more time!- flitting between several projects -as usual!
A bit of knitting with my favourite yarn - Kidsilk Haze - i just love how soft and light this scarf is turning out and the pattern is soo easy - which suits me!

Bit of crochet - few more squares to add to the blanket - i'm not sure whether to carry on doing more squares or whether to stop soon and just add some borders - what do you think?

As the weather was lovely i did pop in the garden centre to get some seeds - so love this time of year thinking of all the lovely goodies in the garden - assuming they don't get eaten before we can get them!

Have also been doing some hand quilting on this flannel quilt - am doing a giant daisy in the middle of each square!

And, most importantly, all tasks are carried out with lots of the above!
Well i better at least make an effort at some housework - have a lovely week.

Oh, that does all look lovely. I have some broad beans that I MUST plant this afternoon; and I think I'm going to have to buy sweetpeas as I've left it so late now. Every year I plan to plant them in autumn, and every year I forget. Ah well.

What is the scarf pattern? It looks lovely, and I have a ball of kidsilk aura that might suit it ...

I love the look of the Kidsilk Haze knitting - it does knit up to such a beautiful light airy texture.
