Easter Sunday

I am fed up!

We should have gone to Ali’s 2 days ago but I am too poorly to travel, let alone pass on my bugs to that special family!….to add insult to injury I am in the process of developing a big fat cold sore on my top lip!

On a happier note, this photo is of the river in the centre of the picturesque town that we will probably be moving to, sometime in the future, hopefully sooner rather than later. We went there yesterday, late afternoon, I managed a few photos but just wanted to get back into the car….I HATE BEING ILL!

Maisie gave me a delicious Green and Black’s organic Easter Egg this morning, I will save it for when I can actually taste something. I really enjoy it… I can eat organic chocolate if I’m not too greedy!

I’ve been buying 1940’s buttons on E bay, they are so pretty. I love that era for style, since I came to live with Barry and have started up my sewing/knitting/crochet hobby again, I have been missing my button box, it got lost somewhere along the line. So this is a good way of replenishing it. I am getting frustrated because I am wanting to do some sewing as the sun is shining, it always makes me want to make a summer dress or two. I have also found a site that sells 1940’s apron patterns, these are such sensible items to have in your wardrobe, and they can look so stylish too. I just need a feather duster and a headscarf and I’d be a dead ringer for Lucille Ball!

I have started on the Rowan Denim cardigan but it is heavy going, I had forgotten just how horrid it is to knit with really, it’s stiff and unyielding and covers me in navy indigo dye but the stitch definition is quite beautiful. I can’t believe that I knitted such a large cardigan 15 year’s ago using this yarn. What spurs you on is the washing bit, the shrinking of the knitting to the correct size and the way it softens so beautifully in the wash….I have put it to one side for now, I needed to be doing something that was quick, easy on the eye and fun so I am making another of EZ’s Baby Surprise Jackets but this time I am using pink. Barry daughter has her second baby due in about 8weeks time so I will be able to give her either the blue jacket or the pink one….

Have a Happy Easter you lovely people……

    Happy Easter and get well soon! How frustrating to miss out on seeing more of the family. But I love the look of your dream location. I’ve bee spending the day tidying and packing: off to South Africa to meet my husband’s family, and step daughter is planning huge dinner party whilst we’re away, so we have to leave everywhere in apple pie order.Can we see pictures of your buttons?

    I’ll send you the link Jo….the fabric on that site is amazing…I’ll put a link on my blog too.I’ll definitely be photographing the buttons…I’ve just discovered that I have won some very special glass buttons, so a nice pile should be winging it’s way to me shortly.Enjoy the day, I am feeling a bit better but the cold sore is a bit painful, I look like I’ve had a collagen injection in the centre of my top lip!
