Wow, what a filled week this has been.....where to start?
I guess the beginning is as good a place as any so let me begin with this week's WIP.
If you recall at the end of May I showed you my colour palette for this project and it included a gorgeous brown in the mix.
Well, once the yarn arrived (I had ordered a couple of extra colours just incase) half of the family declared that the brown must go - :( I really liked it but obliged, as well as swapping the light purple for a more happy pinky purple.
So it went from this palette:
to this palette:
So far I am liking the project and loving the Tunisian crochet!
I am progressing nicely - which is really easy to do with these great teachers at our disposal on Craftsy :D
I look forward to seeing this project in its finishing stages as I am still not entirely convinced about the new colours :O
What do you think of them?
To much like what granny would wear?
I hope to show you more of this project shortly as I have already been progressing through the first couple lessons of my new acquired course:
I know, I know, but can one ever have enough knowledge and Craftsy courses?
I think not!
I am trying to decide on a great yarn for this project and class and will let you know once I have decided :)
Onto other news - great news!
Yes, I managed, with the help of my dear hubby, to safely get a swarm that had settled on a neighbours property inside my hive.
They seem to like it there and I am feeling a little in love I must tell you.
I go out to visit them every day and will fill you in with more details once I have had a good peek inside to make sure everyone is happy.
And lastly: Over the weekend I attended a suitcase market. It would have been more fun had I not been suffering from a bad bout of hayfever. I could barely get the words "Hello, how are you" out before I started sneezing my head off.
Yesterday I had had enough of this situation and went to the chemist to get some hard stuff that suppresses everything :) I must say that I am enjoying feeling human again without having to keep one eye closed and both hands on a pack of tissues! I won't stop with the herbal remedies, but it is good to know I will have some anti-histamines on hand should this flare up again! (I really am not such a wuss, but I really did get the feeling over the weekend that I was either going to rip my skin off with my bare hands, or I was going to gorge my eyes out!)
So how has your week been so far?
What have you been up to?
Reading wise: I am reading......... absolutely nothing right now and that feels good for the moment!
I wish you all a good week.
See you again soon.
P.S: I will be sharing over with all my lovely Wednesday ladies :)
