So off we go!
Years ago a good friend (who inspired me to quilt) gave me a mobile with
several blue fish. Here is one of them. They still make me smile.
Years ago (20 ish) I fell asleep on the sofa (my own quilt by the way!) and Mickey the cat
was also tired. I'd no idea Beloved took this photo .... ah, the darling man.

WOW, look at this crochet blanket! Hawthorn sent me a link to the pattern and when I saw
it I said WOW. So I made it!
During the evenings, when I am tired I find making crochet blankets for cats/kittens that
are looking for a new home is an easy and rewarding task. Can you see the rainbow?
A few years ago, whilst driving around, we stumbled across Pendragon
Castle; there was just the ruin, trees, sheep and us. A lovely place.
I wonder what action these arches saw....

Beloved decided earlier this year that it was time for a new toy!
Soon after he got it, he brought it home as there was a job for it.
I've yet to drive it....
All those lovely swirling colours; I've yet to decide what I will do with them!
Bottom left is destined for a kitty blanket.
So what's special about this brush??? Well down one side of the garden
(where the adjacent field slopes down to) there is a man-made
water course to channel the water that rushes out of this field
away to the river proper at the end of our garden. I've named
our water course Zambezi..... every now and then I climb down
into it (wearing wellies!) and brush all the detritis down and
away into the river proper. Now, with the trees shedding lots of
leaves, I need to get out and keep it clear. So out with my brush
and off I go! The above photos don't show how many leaves
there were. There are still loads on the trees to fall down!
1 Using my NAIL to prise open a split needle.
2 Pushing a loop of yarn from my crochet hook through the open needle.
3 Putting a bead onto the needle.
4 Fingers crossed! Can I pull the bead over the yarn loop?
5 Yes I can (not every bead went on so easily).
6 Yarn loop back on the crochet hook ready for the next treble
You can see the finished shawl in photo 10, as I managed to finish it in time
for this month's photo hunt. It took me ages to add all the beads..... but I did it.
10 Own choice
Here I am modelling my third Virus Shawl; I saw it at Yarndale this year and the
lady said it was a free crochet pattern from Ravelry. Click here to see it.
So I used some yarn I had bought at Yarndale in 2014 and set to!
I had plenty of yarn and kept going to try to use most of it up.
Putting the beads on was slow; I put them on alternate trebles on row 3
of the 4 row pattern repeat. At the moment I am saying never again!
I even took the time to block it... It is so easy to make.
Well, thanks for stopping and having a look. Don't forget to look at Hawthorn's photos by clicking here.
