Good afternoon and how are you this Monday?
Did you have a good weekend too?
I had a busy morning in work on Saturday and I don't think I upset any customers.
I did make a few laugh. Is that allowed?!
On Sunday hubby was back to work so I bounced between the crop and home, consequently not getting much done anywhere.
This morning I was up and sorted early, boys to school and dog walked before popping to town to get a few items of food that have magically disappeared over the weekend. Then I thought I would make a start on the ironing, but I didn't!
Remember my crochet project that I had started?
I have been so close to finishing over the last few days but found the last two parts the hardest of all to crochet, the tail and horns.
Oh the giggles the girls had yesterday about me and my horns. Mine just don't seem as long as the model in the book but I have followed them to the letter. I did embellish just a little by adding more hair on the head and a wee tartan tie. This chap is called Douglas in the pattern book but I think he is more like a Hamish the Heilan Coo.
Now Kerry Lord the author of Edward's Menagerie says she can hook one of these animals in a day, I've spent nearly a fortnight on mine, albeit just picking him up on an evening and if I do make another I think I am going to extend his horns a little.
Still I am happy with the results. He does look a lot darker in this photograph as he is a real orange/red brown, just like the Heilan coo's close by.
What name do you prefer Douglas or Hamish?
That's all from me today, time to go and pick my eldest up before walking the dog and tea, just in time for the rain to come on. Yippee!
Enjoy the rest of your Monday and more from me tomorrow.
