It's been half-term and we've really clicked over to the holiday schedule and it's been wonderful. Slow, leisurely mornings in pyjamas, late breakfasts and casual meal times. We've watched a lot of Olympics, Little Miss is amazingly interested in it for some reason and I'm happy to go along with her.
We've been so into the holiday routine and enjoyed being lazy so much I haven't even managed to get around to posting this week, so it's turned into an impromptu blog holiday too but actually I think having a total break from everything, even this blog that I enjoy so much, has done me the world of good.
There has been some gentle activity this week though. The low key playing of simple games, some companionable stitching together on the sofa and plenty of indoor and out skating practise. We even managed a trip to the park when things brightened up a bit.
I've been mulling over some of my leftover balls in stash to see if I can come up with a suitable second Ricicles Shawl colour combination. I'd started the version at the top of this post just to check the pattern but didn't have enough to complete a whole shawl.
I liked the colours though and the idea of having a 'spring' version of this shawl appeals so I'm seeing if I can come up with something I like from the stash I already have. I'm not sure I'm completely convinced by any of my choices yet though but I'll keep playing.
I've also started working on a new little something using my yarn splurge from the beginning of the year. I've been trying out a few different things and I think it's starting to take shape now. All very exciting and I'll keep you posted on how it's coming along.
And there one other piece of exciting news to tell you too. I've been featured in a magazine. Coo!
It's the Australian magazine, Homespun and they've picked out my Daisy Puffagon cushion. Isn't that cool? I'm most excited I can tell you.
(You can find the Daisy Puffagon Tutorial here by the way!)
I'm just wishing I was in Australia right now so I could get my grubby mitts on a copy. Still, they did send me a pdf of the pages, so that's the next best thing. Check it out...
Well, I hope you have all had a lovely week and if half-term is something that happens to you, I hope you've had an enjoyable one as I have. I'll see you next week when I'll be back to my regular posting schedule.
