What a beautiful day we are having today, the sun is shining after a week of grey and cold days, it has been a delight once again to open all the doors and windows to let the warm breeze through the house and hopefully to take away the bug, cold bug that is, yes I have a bit of a cold, drippy nose and slightly sore throat and a bit of a headache too. IT IS NOT going to get any worse I tell you!!!!
Last night I mixed some oregano oil and some ‘balance’ oil into a carrier oil and massaged my feet with it, oregano is great for your immune system and balance is great for your blood and your emotional state. I also massaged some ginger oil (in a carrier oil) all over my hands, its good for arthritis and I have a few knuckles that hurt sometimes.
I was able to take a few photos today in the sun in the middle of washing and vacuuming etc.
It has been a week of bargains, I picked up this gorgeous wood and wire bird cage for $5 as it was ever so slightly damaged, a little bit of black paint will fix it, they are usually around $30.
Went to Spotlight, I am a VIP member so yarn was on sale for the VIPs, found this out thanks to Anne, I also love rummaging around in the throw out bins, look what I found….
Two balls for $2 each, pure wool, just went into the stash bag.
Spotlight had a class on how to make a crochet bag, I couldn’t help myself I just had to go learn how, I am making a functional colored one, mostly in browns and greens with a bit of a twist, not sure when it will get finished tho’.
Starts of with a few free form flowers and then you crochet around them and just keep going and going and going with different colors and textures of yarn.
Bought a little bag, its a pencil case, joined in the middle and zippers each end, so crochet hooks one end, and stitch markers, stitch holders etc. in the other, I really fell in love with it.
This is the other side, it is a soft pink. I was a bit over having to rummage around all the time attempting to find everything.
Then I ordered this from New Zealand……
Beautiful soft baby wool, not sure what I will make with this, I have so much I want to make……….so watch this space.
I also bought this wool @ $2 a ball and am knitting a little cross over jacket for my granddaughter, she is turning 4 next Saturday, had better hurry up and finish it!!!
Just a little more in length, then the sleeves and then the collar and bands. I am knitting a couple of other things but can’t show you yet, they are a surprise for someone and all my other knitting hasn’t been finished off yet (so lazy in the finishing dept.)
This one is for all the kitty lovers out there, isn’t it the cutest!! My daughter wants it, she’s not going to get it tho’, we already have one and I signed a lease not to get another, plus I really can’t afford another mouth. It does remind me so much of our cat when she was a kitten, without the beanie of course. Which reminds me, I did dress our cat in baby clothes once…..poor thing.
Wishing you a day full of love and fun and sun shine
