Doodles, Daffodils and it's Done!
Such a lovely weekend with really warm sunshine on Saturday. Warm enough to send us outside onto the courtyard with a cup of tea which turned into a late lunch and a leisurely glass of wine later on. So hot we couldn't bear to come back inside. I did manage to tear myself away much later in the day to finish the clean up of my sewing room and found this sketchbook, one of many I doodle in hoping for design ideas to leap out at me.
I had quite forgotten this particular book and enjoyed flicking through the pages.
Jugs of flowers feature fairly regularly, which I had not been aware of. This is odd because I have never actually used them as a design, but do have a passion for jugs overflowing with posies from the garden. There are usually several to be found dotted around the house.
Hmm, every so often I get a child (Lucy) asking for a picute of something like this Flower Fairy. Think she has something of a boxer's nose, poor soul.
And cats also tend to catch my eye, particularly as I would like to be the one curled up in the comfort of a snuggly quilt.
Still, that's enough of that. More important and infinitely more interesting things are afoot because of this....
Yes, cheers all round for Mr Davey please as he has finished knitting his first ever jumper. Isn't it gorgeous?
Of course if I could find the bit on the camera that allows action shots instead of running around after an ever-reluctant Isabella then you would see it in all its beautiful glory. Hey ho, here it is nonetheless and needless to say that it is once again an item knitted in the gloriousness that is Sirdar Crofter wool.
I love it and think my dear Davey has done an amazing job. He's already ordered his next project which is an odd ribbony wool top...for me! Woohoo! I'll share it with you when the goods arrive.
So, that's me for today.
What did you get up to? x
