As mentioned in a previous post recently I've been rather morose and lacked motivation where my crafty inclinations are concerned and been stuck in a bit of a mire of uncertainty
(love that description!!! how are you feeling today darling? not so bad love... in a bit of a mire of uncertainty...you know!) .
Its very unsettling as I do need to have something to look forward to craftywise that's an important part of my quality time and my de-stress therapy. I am lost without it.
Blogging is partially to blame and YOU out there who make such lovely lovely things and distract me and make me impatient and make me long to start something new and,and,and.....yes ok excuses excuses!!!!
I have decided that I'm going to start several projects at the same time and when I get bored of one I'll turn to the other and turn back to the first one when I get bored of the one I turned to and so on....... emm..... did you get that?
So here are my new makes underway :
1.An Afghan throw
I've already completed the centre piece I added my favourite popcorn stitch on the tips ...gives it that little something extra.
the rest will be mutlicoloured squares contrasting with these colours and the throw will be finished off with a black edging all done in DK using a 5.50 hook. I am not following any pattern, I'll go with the flow and what I have in my head.
and then the turn to project is the following:
I started this awhile back to put on a towel but it got put to one side when the crochet addiction took over. I think its going to be a sheet edging because I brought a nice new set of sheets but when I opened the packet and shook out the sheets I saw the edging on them and thought Yuk!!!...that has to go.
oh! and here's my little contribution to the food-cooking theme.
I do know how to cook but rarely do at present...I work and Sr P does the cooking at least usually but when I have a day off or days off I like to get the family together and make a meal for all.
Here you have lemon chicken marinating in white wine and ......looking at the time its got to go in the oven now! Its a Spanish recipe with a bit of a la Amanda's own thing added.
Have a great weekend!!
.....and be good now
