Rain! Rain! Go away! – Days 112, 113, 114 and 115

Standard

This should have been posted on Friday. I think it was atmospherics but it would not allow me onto the internet on Friday night.

Pitter. Patter. Pitter. Patter.

And so another day begins……another washout! In fact we were issued with a flood warning as a months worth of rain is falling¬†over the next 24 hours. ūüė¶ ¬†When is summer going to start?¬†If you are travelling to the Olympics…remember to pack your umbrella! 21 days to go by the way….or three weeks today!

I have to start today with a little apology…again! Mr Grey has taken over my life!Have I done much making? I have to admit to doing some making……but not as much as usual. I also have to admit also to enjoying the pressure of completing something everyday¬†being off for a little while. But now with book three finished it is refocus time. And just in the nick of time, guess what arrived!

Yes! Mollie Makes is here again! Hurrah!

I am definitely in need of inspiration after my last week of craft. What have actually been working on?

‘Blast it’!

Yes I have really tried to make headway with this dratted cardigan this week. Having had to unravel the two fronts and back…leaving me with two sleeves……I just want it finished now. Unfortunately I am getting bored with it and just want it done. It has been really monotonous. You know what it is like when you are making a garment for yourself, you have visions of what it will look like on and this spurs you on to finish it. Knitting it over again……….boring!

Well this is what I have so far……..

……..a back, two sleeves and a front. All matching. Only the right front to do…the problematic one! Hopefully this will be finished over the weekend….being as it is going to be a rainy weekend for all of us!

See you tomorrow

I can’t believe it’s days 100, 101 and 102!

Standard

Good evening!

I know I said I was going to post first thing this morning……but the internet was down! Honest! We were all awake at stupid o’clock too, for reasons I will go into later.

I have decided that I won’t post about today tonight. We have had a fun packed day, and I need to write a special post about it. You will understand when you see tomorrow’s pictures.

Day 100!

This is the view that we have had of the rolling hills for the past few days. How miserable!

Today we went to Royal Ascot! Not literally, you understand, but it was ladies day and it was throwing it down. Today we decided to ‘make’ the most of a rainy day. How creative could we be? Well; Auntie M decided that we would bring Ascot to the rolling hills, out of the rain and with the best view in the house to view the races.

It was ingenious. We started with a buffet lunch, complete with cucumber sandwiches. We decided that as there were five of us we would do a sweep stake for each of the races….just a bit of fun! I can honestly say that the hours wizzed by. I didn’t win any races..it just shows that gambling doesn’t pay¬†! The afternoon was rounded up with Champagne and strawberries. Yum!

Absolutely gorgeous!

Day 101

Can you remember me¬† telling you about the new addition to our family? The truth is that this ew addition is 8 weeks early. An absolute little miracle. This really got me working out how my regular patterns can be adapted for a very tiny baby. Well this is what I came up with…….Now these are a new pattern for me. Even so, I needed to make them a little smaller the pattern said. Quite a bit smaller in fact.Have a look…….Can you see the fifty pence? Hopefully this gives you the perspective of how little these shoes really are!

Day 102

Well a new baby needs to keep warm. So to go with the shoes is a teeny tiny hat. Two sizes smaller than the ones I normally make.

Fit for our little miracle.

See you tomorrow.
