Yet another make-it-up-as-I-go-along crescent-shaped shawl completed – yay!  Knitted from end to end and finished off with a pineapple crocheted lacey border.  I’m totally besotted with this yarn and am now making up another one in the Luckwells burnt orange.

And on a recent jaunt to a local market town, Himself treated me to the prettiest Molly Brett print that I’d fallen in love with!  It’s called ‘Going Shopping’ and all the little creatures are busily filling their shopping baskets.

Just look at Mrs Squirrel and Mrs Rabbit having a good ol' gossip and Mrs Tiggywinkle's little red purse is adorable

Just look at Mrs Squirrel and Mrs Rabbit having a good ol’ gossip and Mrs Tiggywinkle’s little red purse is adorable – they all have such character

So, I hope the sun is shining on you this week.  I can’t believe it’s the longest day on Saturday – where has this year gone?

Take care
