So...it gets to Thursday before any amount of sunshine appears to say hello my way!
Oh, and how I am grateful for it!
Today I feel bright and springy. I have on one of my flower brooches which is making me smile...all proud and in your face!
My mess is sort of nearing an end.
This was making me happy
As much as I ☁HATE☁ sewing in ends....I ♥LOVE♥ the little piles you create. Very satisfying!!!!!!
So.....what was making me laugh? Well...as you know I was doing a few of those rather lovely Japanese flowers we have all taken a shine to, ever since the lovely Lucy over at attic24 delighted us with a scrummy post.
Now, I thought about a scarf, but decided that I wanted a shawl. So I began. Now, I have a shawl already. One that I simply love to bits. It serves me well. I have a soft spot for shawls.
This is my shawl...
I got it from H&M about 18 months ago. The weirdest place to find it I thought...but it grabbed me immediately and the ❤love❤ affair started. Big knit, soft....perfect for wrapping around me and sitting in the garden at first light of a summers morning and last light of a summers evening.
So, another shawl was in the making. The greeny one was a triangular shape so I thought carry on on the same theme. Just, little old me, didn't really register how big the flowers were, therefore calculating just how big the finished triangle would be! Merrily sitting each night adding a few more flowers. Lets just say it was not shawl size. It was blanket size!
What do you think? Not really shawl size is it!!!!!!!! But......I am TOTALLY AND UTTERLY in ❤LOVE ❤ LOVE ❤ LOVE ❤with it!
So...ta-dah-ish....because I need to even up the sides now to make it a bed throw. But what a super duper bed throw i'm thinking it will be! All bright and jolly and I don't think I will be able to take my eyes off it for quite a while! Gosh, this has got me thinking all spring and summer and it has lifted me out of the grey/blue days no end!
Definitely being spoon fed from the happiness jar today!!!!!!
Happy days to you all and sending bright sun bursts your way!
