Where to begin?!!! Well, I treated myself to a couple of bunches of daffodils this week. I hardly ever buy fresh flowers, although when I do I wonder why that is. Look at how gorgeous they look on my kitchen windowsill.....
How about a closer look at the cheerful yellow flowers?
They're keeping my hyacinths company.....
The light's not great but the flowers looked wonderful......I've had to cut two of the stems off now as they'd gone brown. I wonder whether that was what I was meant to do? Probably not, knowing me!!!
I also bought some blueberries this week as they were on offer. For some reason I had it in my head that it was Shrove Tuesday so I thought that blueberries would be nice to have on pancakes. Unfortunately I was a week early so, rather than throwing them away if they didn't last until next Tuesday I thought I'd make blueberry cupcakes..........they're delicious!!!
To carry on with my "domesticated" week, I'm also really pleased with my crochet progress. You may remember that I had been getting myself in a right old state trying to hold the yarn correctly so had got quite frustated and had given up. I picked up the hook again this week and tried again and, although I still can't quite get to grips with holding the yarn the way I should be and I still occasionally give myself cramp in the hand holding the hook, I actually feel like I've achieved something!!! Yay me!! I did a practise of the first square from The Art of Crochet magazine (first issue) and here's the result...
I thought I'd finish with a couple of shots of Freya and the dogs. I can't believe how much confidence Freya gains every day, she really does change on a daily basis. Her personality is starting to come through now (along with a few temper tantrums!) and she's such a joy to observe. The poor dogs don't know what's hit them (literally!)
I hope you have a lovely weekend and I will hopefully catch up with you next week.
