As the seasons change time to get out your woolies....or why not make new?!

How are you this Thursday morning?

I've just been interrupted by the postman again this morning.  Oh I do love getting parcels. 
Mind you this morning hasn't been as exciting as yesterday. 
I have ordered a few bits on line for Christmas, as you do......I also think someone else has!
I opened my parcel with vim and vigour this morning, thinking I knew what was inside, only to find that hubby has been shopping on my eBay account again. 
Something for the computer....not exciting at all!
Don't you just hate it when that happens?

Anyway back to my post and today I wanted to share with you my first crocheted scarf.  This is actually made with a ball of tartan cotton.  I know, how cool is that.  The pictures don't do the colours justice really but as you can see it's my favourite combination of teal and red.

And a closer look.....

Closer up you can get a better feel for the colour combo.  I did gasp when I bought this cotton.....lets just say I think it was the dearest ball in the shop, but isn't it yummy?
I think so.

So what's on the cards today?
I am having my hair done mid morning....time to wash away the grey poking through!
I'd like to finish the Christmas present I started yesterday and I suppose some jobs should be sorted too.  Not a very exciting day on the cards but lets hope a productive one.
Have a good day and more from me tomorrow.  x
