It is nearly the weekend, the week has just flown by. Can you tell me where it went?
I finished the latest piece of crochet called "Petal." Boy did I have some fun with this one!!! I only had enough of the pink cotton to do the outside petals and the first round of the border. I then used the bit of white Coats cotton I had then that ran out. I had a look through my supplies. Nothing that would match. Checked out Mum's supply and some DMC thread matched the white perfectly. You can't see where it starts and finishes. Actually the DMC cotton is so much nicer to work with. The Coats cotton seems stiff after using the DMC cotton. You can see another Milk Jug Cover that I am working on now in the blue dish. Using some DMC cotton for this one too.
On Tuesday I was coming back from the Library and I could see a hot air balloon in the distance and I knew it was heading in the direction of our home. The balloons are usually out in the early morning but this one was out late in the afternoon. I couldn't believe when it landed in a neighbours property just up behind us. How is that for service.
The garden here at Kainga is in full bloom for Spring. These Flanders Poppies are blocking the pathway. With the big storm we had early on in the year things are growing in places that they weren't before which is great.
It won't be long and things will start to dry out. In the meantime I am enjoying the garden. We have had a massive invasion of aphids today. The farmer across the road is cutting the crop for hay. The aphids have decided to call Kainga home for a while. At least the birds have breakfast,lunch and dinner supplied here.
I hope you all have a creative weekend doing something you love.
