|Tea time! Mine's herbal, usually pepperment and nettle, chamomile and spearmint, or a fruit tea if I want something sweet.|
I can't show you details, but yesterday's secret crochet work gave this blanket the pizazz (made up word) it needed to make it shine. It's going to be a while yet as it's fiddly, but I you'll love how cute it looks!
What I can show you is the alphabet baby sampler I'm working on. First here's an earlier progress pic:
I'd thought I'd need to wait sew a few creatures before finishing some of the letters, but as you can see in the next pic I'm close to finishing them all without a creature in sight! (yet)
I've done M and started R since this pic got taken, and hope to have done the entire alphabet for when I update you on this project.
I've also been creative in the relaxation department - here's a super cute cat jigsaw puzzle a friend gave me.
|Part way through the puzzle - it's on a shawl to reduce the noise of the jigsaw pieces as I sorted and fitted them together - family were watching TV while I worked on it.|
It's hand crafted, and as you can see has what are called 'whimsey' pieces which are the usual shape, but specific ones.
In this case I have 2 cats, a snowflake, and an xmas tree! I hope to be able to get more of these types of jigsaws in the future as they are fun.
|I hope whatever hobbies you enjoy that you've fitted them in over the festive season! Relaxation is important for our wellbeing ^o^|
