I am posting this a day early as Friday is the day of our great internet changeover, and I have no idea how long that will take. We are now on Plan C by the way of interim internet provision, Mr E has his uses.
It’s also Scrap Happy Day so I am combining two posts in one, so do please visit Kate’s blog for more scrap happy projects.
I have continued to use up the yarn leftover from the Eastern Jewels blanket- so far there have been two cushion covers and a blanket( this has now gone to a homeless charity), and at last I have used all the yarn that was leftover. I am now onto using scraps of yarn leftover from other projects. Yes there probably is enough to make a good size blanket.
The grey colour is really green, and it’s going to be an enormous granny square.
This week it’s been all about the garden and its winter tidy up. Four man days it took and oh boy there is a difference.
Wisteria off the wall
Up again, can’t wait to show you it in May .
Big mess in vegetable garden.
Big mess moved onto the lawn at the end of day one, and now all gone for recycling and upcycling.
Vegetable garden ready for action.
Pond in need of some TLC
Pond ready for the frogs returning next month.
I feel as if a great weight has been lifted from my shoulders. There were two trailer loads of vegetation now all gone. How long would that have taken me to dispose of via the garden refuse collection which doesn’t get collected in Winter. I had already filled it to the top. Oh and the compost bins are overflowing too.
Sometimes you just have to concede that Wonderwoman can’t do it all by herself. when Superman has been very ill indeed.
I am now looking forward to warmer days when I can potch around the garden again. I love going out first thing in the morning and enjoying those early moments when day begins.
The birds love the transformation by the way. You should have heard the noise they made on the first day the chaps came.
A quieter weekend is install for us. I am hoping to go to Scarborough on Saturday to choose backing fabric and wadding for my beginners quilt. Friday morning is Family History Group. I have made some good progress with my researches this year and all down to my Dad not chucking things out. If anyone’s interested let me know and I will do a post.
So I hope you all have a good weekend. Any nice plans? Do tell. Have you ever had to give in and get help when things overwhelm you? And please don’t forget to look at others Scrappy Projects.
