Today, for one brief day, the sun came out!
The promise of a pancake breakfast lured my daughter out of bed to join me in an early morning bike ride down our local section of the cycle network before the hoards descended on the area to enjoy the sunshine.
A quick trip to ikea to finally replace our rotting garden furniture culminated in an hour of rather successful joint flat back erection.
A new garden table against which to photograph my finished African Flowers.
I also dug out my Planet Penny stash of cotton.
This is the haul for my first amigurumi, the stripy giraffe. The first of many amigurumi I intend to crochet between now and December for the little people of the family.
This is the original giraffe ( by Emma from I love Buttons) I came across a few months ago on Pinterest and promptly lost. But now he is found once more! I love the stripes.
The BBC have promised us rain and chill again for the next few days. Ah well, it was good while it lasted.
Love, Lucie x
