Poor old daffodils (taken yesterday morning).
Indoors was much better!
Given that the roads were clear, I drove along to Morrisons yesterday and got the few things I needed. I also found Mullerlight yogurts at 30p each which is very good and treated myself to a DVD - the Paddington 2 film as I heard it is lovely and is guaranteed to have no naughty bits and certainly no nasty bits so suits me just fine. I shall watch it this afternoon, I think, as it's too cold and nasty to go out.
I finished the snowdrops cross stitch and here it is. There's a few errors which I won't point out but it's pretty. Now I have to decide what to do with it.
I've started another one - much bigger this time. Sorting out the silks was a bit of a brain-acher and I had to do it by the window but I think I've got it right now. I did the old trick of punching holes in a bit of card to thread the silks through.
This is it (a scan of the picture that came with it).
Sorting out some more cupboards in my bedroom, I found some things that I was so pleased about.
A decade or so ago I got down to more or less the weight I am now - still too much but getting there - and, as an encouragement, knitted a couple of jumpers. One was in chunky with a knit-purl pattern similar to a Guernsey and the other was a proper Aran and they are both long (bum covering).
I can get them on but they are tight and anyway, something as chunky as that needs to be looser fitting but they are lovely, I remember how much I enjoyed making them all that time ago and, all being well, they will be absolutely perfect for next winter, being the sort of traditional thing that really doesn't date..
It feels like a gift - a treat from me to me. :-)
Must dig out my patterns and maybe knit myself a few more things over the summer.
Today will be more or less the same. Paddington to watch, knitting, crochet and sewing to be getting on with and some planning to do for next week. Should be good!
If you have to go out, please take care and be safe.
