Hello everyone. My bag is packed and both my suitcase and cabin luggage are under the weight allowance. I'm very happy about that. Despite holiday preparations taking place, life has been going on much the same as usual.
This past week and half the weather turned from a very balmy autumn to a very wet and soggy autumn. We've had heaps and heaps of rain and the days are much shorter. To cheer myself up when it was so gloomy I lit some tea light candles. There is something so nice about candle light, very warming and cheery.
One evening I had a yearn to crochet something different and decided to try this square which is part of a cushion cover.
The pattern is from a very old magazine, the (Australian) Woman's Day, March 18, 1974. It was given to me by a best friend who is moving house and downsizing.
I enjoyed making the square but it was time consuming so I don't think I'll be making a blanket from these squares.
I had a need to make orange poppy seed muffins a couple of days ago and found an easy melt and mix recipe here. They were delicious with a cup of tea.
This is my last post until I get to France and posting from our little laptop to test it's working o.k. Fingers crossed. Have a wonderful weekend whatever you are doing.
