Not a lot of crafty progress to show this week, most of my time has been spent in the garden, we have had some beautiful weather and I have managed to get some much needed tidying up done. It's looking so much better now and should be easier to keep on top of over the summer months.
So, on my hook...... I have had some solid granny squares.
I used Lucy's tutorial, (Attic24), which I opted for after trying quite a few, I felt these were so much neater than the others I'd tried .
The only thing I did differently was to start with a magic circle.
I'm just using what Stylecraft Special I have at the moment and will decide on what colours to go with when I've done a few more.
Stormbird by Conn Iggulden
I've read such a lot of 'fluffy' stuff lately, and that's ok, there's nothing wrong with fluffy stuff , I've enjoyed a change but I'm ready for something a bit more substantial again now, and I was missing my history books.
This is the first book in his new series set during the Wars of the Roses and starts at the very beginning with the death of King Henry V.
I do have the second one on my bookshelf too but I believe that the 3rd has already been released, so you can tell how long they have been waiting for attention!
Not a lot of work with my needle this week. Elizabeth has really not had a lot of attention for these past couple of weeks, all I managed to add was the two little flowers.
Excuse the wrinkles and the shadows
That's it for now, short and sweet again this week:-)
Just a few photos in the garden to end with.
As I mentioned earlier, the weather has been really good and there are lots of plants coming to life again, with the pieris taking centre stage at the moment with it's changing colours.
Thanks for popping by and your lovely comments, I really do appreciate them all.
