Loads to Share Wednesday


Drops cotton merino

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:

colour palette number 2

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:

Online Crochet Class

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!

Bees in hive

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 :)

  1. I signed up for my first craftsy class a couple of weeks ago. It is quilt big projects on a home machine! I'm excited the prospect of learning something new. I do like your new color scheme better too.

  5. I have to admit I am on your family's side...the orange-brown wasn't working for me either in the photo. Maybe it looked better in real life though.
    Hope the market went well despite your hayfever!
