WELL...

... it may be a Bank Holiday Monday here in the UK... BUT we have sunshine xx It is BEAUTIFUL x ... and .. this is the third day in a row that the sun has shone .. could Spring have actually sprung .. or is it just wishful thinking ? Time will tell x 

Gus is in his favourite spot..



he is an old man now at 13 and needs the sun on his bones xx

I finished my May Shawl Club offering  ...




I had not worked the mosaic stitch before and am happy with the way it worked.... you only work with one colour at a time and use slipped stitches to make the pattern... 



I like the fact there has been a new stitch to learn each time . ALSO that there is very little wool left to "slip" into the stash...


I think this may just be my favourite so far x Come the cooler weather I will be ready xx 

The family were all here for dinner yesterday .. it is so lovely to not have to be in doors with all the doors and windows closed .. mm we seem to be eating just as much .. nice to have ice cream though xxx Fun memories 

Here's hoping you ALL have some sun and fun times with family and friends x

Gus is a handsome guy!

Spring has finally arrived here. People were beginning to call it "sprinter" as we thought the snow and cold would never leave.

Have a lovely week.

So good to hear you have had sunshine...Gus will be happy to be outside and in his favourite spot. The shawl is beautiful, love that little mosaic stitch. We are supposed to have rain the next few days..maybe our sunshine has swapped with your rain???
