my little something...

you know at the end of my last post i said that i had been working on a little something, well i have  now finished it, and if i say so myself i  very pleased with it.
These blue/grey granny squares were blogged about previously and i did have plans to make them into a blanket, but i decided to change my plans and i decided to do this instead...

this is the front

and this is the back..forgive the colour the picture didnt want to come out as good as the top one.
For my first attempt at crochet iam really pleased with the outcome.
And now i have my mind set to making a blanket, i just have to sort out the pattern of how the squares will go.
Anyway yesterday i had a wonderful day, i went into Ely one to do the food shop, but also to go in hunt for some cushion inners because of the above task.
While i was out though i had a good rumage in the charity shops and found these.

lots and lots of wool going really cheap from 50p to 1.99.  I thought wow and even if i dont use them all i wouldnt of spent much money on them if they didnt get used. But being in the bags you prehaps dont see them properly so....

the blue above is very much the same colour that i made the back of my cushion with..
just think what i could make now! a few more cushions maybe..

Also while out and about i picked these up

I found 2 more cushions, one from a charity shop and one from the haberdashery, some fabric, some t towels in the coulurs of liquorice alsorts well thats what i think, maybe i could make something with them any ideas? and lastly keep calm and carry on postcard for my hubby so he knows he can be strong and keep moving forward in the toughest days.

When cameron came in from school he really fancied a hot chocolate dont blame him as it was abit chilly yesterday and as you can see he had much fun putting lots of marshmallows on the top..

Anyway today has been abit more sunny so while bear was kipping i popped out and cut back our roses, so now they are all ready to flower, i cant wait...

There are so many jobs to do, in the garden and in the house i really must write a list and put them into some sort of order.

I hope you have all had a good day x
