Show and tell

Last week I bought these lovelies from the CS and I forgot to show you.



Pretty mohair scarves. I didn't buy them to wear, I would like to make something with them, but I'm not sure what yet!


The colours are much prettier in real life!




These 2 are pure wool and may become little Scottie dogs I think!


The grey scarf on the left is beautifully soft Alpaca, gorgeous!


They are just sitting in a pile at the mo.


I had a wonderful weekend filled with crisp sunny walks, yes sunny and blue skies, DVD watching, lovely crochet and gorgeous food cooked by Hubby (he made a lovely roast dinner)


Oh and Singstar, now I'm not one for karaoke, no no no, I'm too shy( my friends would snigger at this point and say You, Shy?) But I am I exclaim! But in the comfort of my own home we have great fun battling it out on Singstar and we just ordered a new one which made us laugh- a lot!Now I say us, I mean me and Hubby, as my 16 yr old son disappeared upstairs cringing as we attempted Bohemian Rhapsody! Honestly, !!



Now I have a bit more crochet to show you, made with yarn from my stash, in the loft. That would be the loft that is SOOOO full of my craft stuff, Hubby swears it will collapse into our bedroom anytime soon!


Brights,









I followed the tutorial from Bunnymummy and it is brilliant, very clear and easy to follow!



PastelsThank you so much Jacquie! You're a star!

i LOVE singstar... i think it's the 21st century equivalent of a wartime singsong around the piano or a jane austen type recital... my favourite song has to be living the vida loca, and i always do it standing up! work it baby, x
