We started with a finished object for Finished Object Friday. A very special little man was born a fortnight ago to my wonderful friend and I fell in love with him instantly. Since he was so small and so blooming cute, it would have been rude not to make him anything to wear. At less than 6lb, I decided to make him a Paxton Preemie Jacket in some Rico baby Classic DK and Bergere De France Ideal I just happened to have lying around the place ...as you do ;)
I was worried that it would still drown him but little E wore it coming home from hospital and it fitted him just fine.
We had friends to stay for Easter and they kindly found the sun on their way to our house and brought it with them so after the obligatory Grimsby Fish and Chips, we went for a very bracing, but at least not snowy or rainy, walk along the beach at Cleethorpes and found lots of washed up starfish. Due to the high Spring tides and the storms we had had the week before, hundreds of them had been washed up onto the beach.
I indulged in a little Amigurumi and made an Easter chick...apparently. It looked more like a puffer fish..or an elephants head, according to Lou....
While I have been getting up in the mornings to get cracking on the sewing pile, everyone else has been making the most of lazy mornings, J has spent it reading everything he can find about Harry Potter while L has read book after book....I am very jealous!
This morning Mr Nicsknots decided that it was the day to start cutting a hole in the ceiling on the landing to make a bigger loft hatch...I see no reason for this other than maybe he is contemplating moving up there and after his antics today, I'll help him up there..and nail the trap-door shut! We now have two gaping holes in the ceiling, bits of polystyrene from one end of the house to the other because 'I may as well just take the tiles off while I am up here....'and more tools than B+Q own strewn from one bedroom to the landing, to another.
I'm told I'm not patient. I beg to differ...I didn't utter a word while trying to work on a building site all afternoon and when that little ball of anger grew too big, I took myself off for a little walk to the Post Office before hiding in the greenhouse with a cup of tea for half an hour.....
Have a great weekend everyone. I hope the sun keeps on shining for us all!!
