Time for a change, as much as I loved the old blog look, it was a bit dark and now that we are coming into winter I thought I needed something brighter to keep the summer feel going. A few blogs that I read have this one and I like the open ‘sunny’ look of it and this one has a few more widgets that I can access.
I still need to ‘tweak’ the background and header to settle on something that is fresh and sunny, a WIP of a different variety.
I took myself off to another yarn shop, around a half hours drive from here yesterday…..ooohh such beautiful displays of yarn, I couldn’t stop petting and pulling out and merging colors together. I forgot to take my camera of course.
I actually went to two yarn shops, and had a lovely chat with the elderly lady that owns one of them, her name is Rachel and she is a funny French lady, she has a wicked sense of humour and had me giggling at the stories she was sharing. Her shop is tiny and packed to the rafters (not kidding) with yarn, lace, buttons, patterns, needles and hooks and other bits and bobs, you have to ask cos you sure can’t find anything on your own.
I bought two balls of sock yarn as they were on sale and I really like the color combination, oh and some little pearl buttons.
I then went off to the other yarn shop, four times as big with all the yarns set out in pigeon holes, the above sock yarn was on sale, so two balls came home with me and the below Sublime Baby cashmere/merino/silk, so soft. A ball of each as it is quite expensive, but oh so soft and such pretty colors.
And all the little buttons, so sweet, they are made out of wood, except the pearls ones of course. I had such a lovely time walking around looking and feeling. The sales lady certainly didn’t have the personality of the first lady tho, the opposite in fact.
We have been so blessed here all week, we have had glorious weather, summer warmth in fact, however today there is quite a breeze blowing and bringing in grey clouds and it is cooling down a little. I am so happy for my lovely friends over the pond as they are having beautiful warm Spring days, I am loving the beautiful photos of flowers etc. it’s also good to hear how it is making people feel so much better after the dreadful winter they all had.
I’m off to do some more tweaking, catch you soon, have a wonderful weekend.
Lots of these xoxoxoxoxox to all of you
