Friday Again

My goodness is it really Friday again. This week has just flown by so quickly. As usual like most weeks I am behind.... again. I did manage to make something new though. A vase cover. This time instead of crocheting one I made one out of fabric and lace. It is just a simple cuff that slides over the glass vase and covers up all the stems that you would otherwise be able to see. It went together in about 10 minutes or so and I am really liking how it turned out. I guess the possibilities are endless when it come to fabric choices... especially in my house! It's a really good way to to use up small scraps that I know we all have saved away somewhere.

I do like fresh flowers in the house. When I go grocery shopping I look to see what is on sale. I picked up this little bunch for $2.99 and brought them home to brighten up the house. Which as you all know needs some brightening up lately... but I refuse to talk about how dull and rainy it is again today!
Well here is an updated pic on the ripple blanket that I am currently making. It has grown quite a bit and I am so enjoying rippling away in the evening while relaxing watching television. It is now big enough to snuggle under while I am hooking away.... which is pretty nice right now due to all that gloomy rainy weather that I refuse to talk about!

So that's it for another week. I hope your weekend is a fun one. Ours would be except of course for that subject that I refuse to talk about!

See you next week!

Hello there
Well your post has really brightened my day. Just to see such lovely bold colours. I am still " hooked " on blues because ---- sorry, but the sun is still so hot and just shiny here. Don't worry we shall soon be heading back to the UK and I am sure summer will be up to its usual standard!!
Kindest Regards Linda

That blanket will definitely brighten the room. It's growing quite fast.

We had a deluge of that word you refuse to talk about last night, accompanied by claps of thunder. I must say the garden is looking better for it. Today I think we are in for a mix of both sunshine and showers. The vase cover is a nice idea, and very neat work on the ripple blanket. You have such talent Kathy. Happy weekend! x

Your blanket is coming along beautifully! Here's hoping that your weather turns for the better soon so you can be out and about again. Great photos on your last post, too, as always! Have a great week!

Oh your ripple is beautiful - you are making amazing progress. Does using the finer 3 ply yarn take alot longer. It seems to me it would or am I wrong. Your vase cover is so pretty - what a neat idea. Hope your rain is letting!
