Another Daisy or two (FNSI)
Last night was Friday Night Stitch In, were we all make time across cyberspace to sit and sew, crochet, stitch or quilt and even though I teased about starting something else, unfortunately I didn't get the chance.
I was 'umming and ahhing' about driving into town. For us, 'Town' has several destinations. There is Little Town which is closest for groceries, then there is Middle Town, a bit further in the opposite direction, for something a bit more and then there is Big Town, which is beyond Middle Town, where you can get just about everything. I decided to head into Middle Town just after lunch mainly because I was looking for a wool needle and a stock pot.....not to use in the same instance of course....and thought Big W would be my best option.
I found the stockpot but no wool needles......however......I did find some gorgeous yarn to add to my ever growing new stash. It is soooooooo soft and just the exact colour I have been looking for. I think that burnt orange will look lovely with just the right kind of pink.
To top it all off, I was in the Newsagent looking at the quilting mags when I spotted this lovely edition of crochet projects......Ooooooh, I think I am in love.
I am determined not to let crochet become like my quilting habits and I WILL finish the daisy blanket first. Of course it would be a waste to come all this way and not do some further shopping and since this is our nearest Coles..... Just for some variety, I filled a trolley with food, filled my perscription and bought a couple of pairs of new jeans.
By the time I got home, I then had to pack it all away, feed the dogs and take them for their evening constitutional (which took forever!), turn on the towel heater for my farmer.....gee, I am a good wife, start the fire for the evening, prepare and cook the evening meal and wash up and then I was able to sit down and begin my FNSI......So what did I work on?
I managed to make a few more daisy centres for the blocks
