Starting with last night, I finished the baby blanket using Sirdar's Snuggly Squishy yarn.
As I mentioned yesterday, I wasn't 100% happy with the width of the blanket...I am generally fairly average with tension, but this was about 4cm less I realised after bothering to measure it!
So with the last ball, I decided to do rounds of single crochet all the way round, which did the trick of adding some extra width and I actually like the firmer edging a border gives.
The blanket is now being blocked ( aren't I good!) and will be ready to give to my friend when she calls in next week.
The weather really was beautiful today, t shirt weather!
As I went out to do some shopping, I couldn't help but marvel at my "snapdragon" flowers again...
happily growing from brick work, with no soil or regular watering!
And this begonia too....just how do they do it!
All my watering, dead heading and nurturing has nothing on nature it seems!
At Lidl today I saw these and was curious as to what they were...
...I really wasn't expecting anything quite so cute!!!!
It tasted similar to a kiwi but a bit sweeter....how adorable are they!!
The big event of the day was Hubby arriving home safely from his trip to the US.
He came armed with the goodies on our wish list and a few extras too.
It's good to have him back.
Teen Two was especially pleased to have his dad back, and LOVED his present of a pen with a fidget spinner on top!
Our story at Friday Club was of Zaccheus, who climbed a tree to see the Lord passing by.
We printed off these trees and got the kid to make fingerprint leaves, they really loved it.
