Keeping the momentum going.
Well thought l would try and keep the momentum going and blog again, maybe it's the lovely weather we are having today. I thought l would show you where l sit and knit or sew or crochet in my garden when the weather is fine, and talking of crochet here is a blanket that l did for my daughter Laurens sixteenth birthday it just fills the top of our double bed it took quite a while to complete but and couldn't wait to finish it for her l just loved the colours and Lauren loves to wrap herself up in it l really enjoyed making this for her. Well back to the garden l needed a new cover for my gazebo but for love nor money l could not find one for mine so not to be defeated l brought some fabric which reminds me of neopolitan ice cream and beach huts don't you think so too, l used the old cover for a template and it was so easy l used my overlocker too make it stronger and l added some bunting to give it a summery look and it only took a few hours and l was so pleased with the result and because of the shape l had lots of pieces left over so l looked at my garden furniture and it was all miss matched so out came the paint and brush and l got to work and gave it a sort of new England look and then l made some cushions for it all the rocking chair and foot stool were surplus requirements in the house so they got a makeover too it gives them a use and l am really pleased with the outcome . Beau got in the picture too just look at his face he has been fighting with another cat, he wont stay in at night and this is the result . I have some new little visitors in my garden these lovely birds that DH brought me also this little bike is off my sister, l really am pleased with these.While l was taking the pictures my son and his little family came for a visit so here are some more baby pictures Jessica is not very well she has an infection in her mouth with all little blisters, even water seems to hurt her so she is not a happy bunny today. Well that's me for today l will show you my knitting and my new kitchen hopefully next time, hubby's off to the pub now to watch the England game l hope they do well and l am going to do some sewing so until next time enjoy this glorious weather and take care hugs Pat
