Bright blue skies today, which is nice but boy there's a nip in the air. My facial cheeks are still tingling after my brisk afternoon jolly along the beach with my BFF and the dogs. I think a cup of tea may be the order of the day.
I've had a wee man not feeling well again today and the older one home studying.
For someone not feeling well my youngest has eaten all day!
(The quickest bounce back on record!)
Still with the eldest one home too it meant I could still make my hair appointment this morning. I now feel lighter and brighter!
Isn't it amazing how a quick trim can make you feel so much better?
I got a crocheting gift from my hubby for Christmas, so I have recently been experimenting with threads and needles.
These are so much easier to work with than the traditional metal hooks and comfortable to use too.
I wanted to make more of my thistle pins and decrease the size a little so out came my cotton yarn and a smaller hook. This is the first attempt next to my larger original pattern size.
It must be done.
I made a few of these for Christmas presents, in a presentation box.
I think they'd not only be good for Wedding button holes but also for Burns night or New Year. What do you think?
And not a prickle in sight!
That's all from me today.
Chores and making tea next, more from me tomorrow.
