No rain today, I've had a fantastic weekend of fine food, champagne and five star hotels ( is there such thing as a ten year and one week anniversary....surely there is..if not I think I might need to invent one!) and ....drum roll..I finished the scarf!!!! Only took me three attempts but I assure you well worth it in the end. See?
I love the colours, the shape is exactly what I wanted , the vintage button is perfect and it is fully functional ie it actually keeps my neck warm! The advantage of making three attempts at it, is that I can now make this scarf in my sleep and , in fact number #2 is almost finished. Steph's wisdom teeth scarf has been missing in action for a few weeks , lost at a BBQ, so she is in need of another to keep her warm and toasty - I enjoyed finishing mine so much that I launched straight into one for her and I have not had to undo one single stitch. And then I'm thinking of one as a birthday surprise ( not such a surprise if she reads this post!) for Michele......once you're following the right pattern, such an enjoyment to make! Rose has put her order in for a mini one as well as requesting one for Charlotte so "that we can be twinnies" . How cute. All of us wearing exactly the same type of scarf. Hmmm, must think about that one ( although it really would be perfect for a child - easy on and off but doesn't fall off, can't get tight around the neck, no dangly bits to get caught in the car door )
Speaking of Rose, she was in artist mode today, complete with beret ( an old one of mine that now lives in the dress up box) and painting away busily so that she could have an exhibition.....above is from her red phase.... below is her yellow/orange phase
A lot of her girlies at the moment seem to sport rather large chests - she often comments on the size of women's chests usually along the lines of " she's got awfully big bosoms, mama, why?"
Why indeed? Is this a phase all little ones go through?
She has already informed me that when she grows up into a "bigger girl" she is going to have nice big bosoms like Grandma...hmmm, if you take after your mama, kiddo, you're in for a bit of a let down in that department. I'm trying to convince her that my build ( let's just call it sporty and be nice about it!) is much more aerodynamic especially if you want to be a "Rose, Queen of the trampoline"
With any luck she'll forget about boobs and just want something achievable like blue eyes or blonde hair.....
