Good Morning! It is sunny and bright here today with blue sky and quite a few clouds that are generally whiter than grey.
Which is a change from the weekend when it was mostly grey and rained more of the time than it was dry. Not a weekend to be out and about in the garden.
So instead we stayed in and did a few things that we needed to finish up.
I worked on some pattern drafting which ended up taking most of Saturday. It will be a job well done when it is finished, but it took a long time!
In the evening I finished up this shawl - which needs to be blocked and the ends sewn in. I have shown it briefly in the podcast episode I recorded this morning. When the pattern is written I will share more.
I was glad to get it done though as I had a couple of false starts with this one.
I also sewed in the ends on this basket and finished it up. It is now for sale in my Etsy shop. I also started another one! The pattern is available here.
On Sunday I spent most of the day working on my Happy Scrappy Squares Blanket which I am loving. I added 19 more blocks. I have decided that this will be my Sunday project and I will only work on this on Sunday and it will be the only crochet that I work on on that day. Unless I also do some on my hexi blanket!!
What was Hubby doing all weekend while I was working and crocheting. Well, he wasn't sitting around twiddling his thumbs. He was dealing with this lot.
He stripped all of the all tiles off the laundry room walls and has started to retile. It looks really great so far and I am very pleased with the tiles that we chose. I will show you more when it is done.
This is the last "big job" to get done in this house after we moved in over a decade ago. We have been round the rest of the house and done all sorts from rewiring to new windows, wallpaper scraping and new kitchen and bathroom to name but a few. This was the last area that needed attention and now it is done.
Of course it is now time to start going around again and getting things refreshed in other areas, but it will be so good to have this finished. It looks so much better already not having the tiles that were here before. I have to say I would rather that the previous owner had just left the brick than their tile choice, but they are gone now and that is what is important isn't it.
So that was our weekend. Being homebodies, but getting lots done so that is all good.
I hope that you had a good weekend and that you will have a good week too!
I am joining with Karen at Pumpkin Sunrise to share what I did this weekend. Do go and stop by and see what Karen got up to and the others who are sharing too.
