Since my last post I have gone as far as I can with my scissor keeper as I forgot to pack any stuffing!
So I bought some yarn for a new crochet project. I plan to make all different squares and then put them together to make a blanket. These are the squares I have completed so far
and this is the square I crocheted yesterday for FNSI.
I am returning to the shop next week sometime to see if they have the same yarn in a dark grey or black for putting the squares together. I have been trawling the internet looking for different squares to make and have learnt lots of interesting new techniques and had to come to grips with US crochet terminology!
Many thanks for getting us all together again Wendy - you can see what everyone else got up to here
Earlier this week we visited Sorbas, a small town inland from us. The town itself is a typical Spanish hill town with narrow streets and a few little shops tucked away behind curtained doors. Our noses led us to the bakery!
However there is also a pottery there which we found very interesting. Do click on the link here to see a picture of one of the two rooms that were cram packed with pots in all shapes and sizes.
Needless to say we were tempted! Philip fell for the shape of this jug plus it's 'Pisces' decoration.
And I loved the colour of this bowl.
Sorbas is near Tabernas - we did not visit but it was the centre for filming spaghetti westerns back in the 60's as the desert scenery was perfect.
We also found a layby with this amazing view across to the coast.
We also visited Mojacar Pueblo this week. This is a very touristy hill town full of what Philip calls 'trinket' shops! However there are some pretty streets away from the shops and it too has an amzing view.
We finished our morning with a delicious 'fish and chip' lunch on the waterfront at Garrucha.
