Lovely to join in with everyone once again - thank you Cheryll for getting us all together again. You can see who joined in here.
It was a busy day with shopping and the market in the morning. Then our WDP service in the afternoon. For me it will always be the Womens World Day of Prayer service but I suppose times must change. Our prayers for the women of Zimbabwe will be appreciated whatever the name of the service I know.
So it was the evening before I was able to get to any sewing, and I needed to get my swap hexies made for the month. A result.
We will have been home from Spain a week tomorrow, Sunday. And apart from today, it has rained every day! Yesterday the river flooded and all the way along to Riberac the fields are flooded. The water is still there today. Tomorrow we are expecting more rain.
So, plenty of time indoors to finish my crochet sampler blanket.
I added an Indalo to a black section on the blanket in cross stitch to indicate that I had worked most of the blanket in Almeria. The corners are a bit too full but then this was a learing experience and I shall know what not to do next time. Overall I am very happy with the border and I managed to use most of the yarn I had in those colours.This was a great holiday project over two years.
There is a new Janie Crow crochet pattern about to be released which I have fallen in love with! It is called The Fruit Garden and is based on the embroideries of May Morris. But, I have promised myself that the next crochet project I do will use my stash. Watch this space!
