 I was so excited to have my little munchkin stay with me for a few hours today. It was the first time he had been left anywhere without my daughter or son in law.  He was such a joy and never shed a single tear. I am over the moon to know that he loved staying with us.

This morning a parcel arrived from the U.K containing that ball of yarn I desperately needed to complete my crocheted colourwash blanket. As I was paying a fair bit of postage I decided to make it more viable by ordering 3 new crochet hooks that are designed to make it easier on the hands .
Last week my lovely colourful balls of yarn arrived from the UK to crochet a gorgeous blanket which may prove to be a bit of a challenge for me. Unfortunately, the pattern book didn't come with the kit so I couldn't start it as soon as I wanted to. However, after sending an email and receiving a very prompt reply the actual pattern book is winging its way here, infact it has most likely already landed in the country. I can't fault Black Sheep Wools service whatsoever. They were truly amazing.
I was eagerly awaiting Jenny's latest free BOM and have prepared it ready for stitching. I love the combination of applique and stitching.
Voila! All my Little Lucy rows are now pieced together. I just need to add some side fillers and then she is ready for borders.
I hope you are all enjoying some stitching time.
Angel Blessings.
