The holidays are nearly over.
The Grandparents return to Scotland this afternoon.
Lala started preschool today..... Time to dip my toe into the New Year.
Resolutions? Nah - my wish is to retain the 45rpm setting on daily life for as long as possible. Use my diary to keep busy-ness in check and use it to write down what I did achieve at the end of the day as a process of celebration and reflection, not just record what I want to achieve for the next day [and feel bummed out that not all the little boxes got a tick.]
(if I've lost you go read Dee's take on this - she writes so eloquently)
Speaking of achievements, I promised you a look at some of the holiday projects I finished during The Big Wet recently:
You can find the tutorial here
I used some frames I found in my stash which were a lot thinner than the ones in the tutorial, so I chose to use fine 2 ply baby yarn and once steamed and blocked they look quite good. Lala wants a picture of a horse in one and a rabbit in the other, but to be honest they will probably sit on the wall as is for a wee while before I get 'round to that.
See the dangly bits on the red frame - I stuffed up with my counting. Twice. In the end I made some chains and I'm on the hunt for a good crochet heart tutorial - I think it will look quite sweet with little hearts sort of referencing the pink heart shaped one.
Hope all is well in your world.
Oh p.s. - don't forget we are Wardrobe Wednesday-ing over at Sailor Spy tomorrow. Might see you there.
