Hello, anyone fancy an ice-cream????
My daughter saw a picture – somewhere – of a little weeny ice-cream cone and asked me if I could make one. Off to YouTube I went and found a tutorial, I tweaked it a little as it would have been very wide, I made it slimmer and a little longer. If any of you girls would like to make one here is the link to the cone and here is the link to the dollop of ice-cream. I thought of making a little chocolate stick to go on the side, but I don’t think I can make it small enough.
Last night I crocheted up some tiny flowers and hearts, inspiration from Lucy @Attic24
Not quite so lovely as Lucy’s tho, she has the knack for things like this. I put three little fluffy chicks in the branches, I did it for my grand-daughter, thought she would get some pleasure looking at it. Must admit I am quite liking it too, a bit of color in the corner, although you wouldn’t know from the photos, everything looks washed out and the wall is cream not white.
I have been very tired of late and not feeling 100% in the tum, I had a test done for acid in the system and I am quite acidic, so am on some tablets (herbal) and having lemon juice in warm water every morning. Feeling so much better and I have 6 days off work, so have shut myself away, no socializing just resting, crocheting, reading and of course eating, oh and cups of tea and coffee. Tomorrow I am thinking there will be some chocolate too, well I know there will be chocolate, I bought it myself lol.
AND……I won a giveaway from marmaladerose a gorgeous handcrafted bunny that Fi makes, I am beyond words happy. I have never won a giveaway before….I squealed and my feet went up in the air and did a little dance when I read my emails, and such lovely emails and comments on my blog congratulating me from my bloggy friends, you are all so lovely. Helen – she’s not getting this one I am going to be very selfish, this one is all mine hehe.
I am on the last two rows of the border of mums blanket, almost finished, will take photos and do the ‘TaDah’ I have run out of yarn for my dads blanket so nothing can be done until I receive my yarn I ordered it from the UK 6 weeks ago, not arrived yet, so sent an email to the lovely Chris who has resent the yarn. Somewhere between the UK and Aussie it has gone awol. I appreciate that Chris believes me and sends another order without charge. I would love you to support them if you need any Stylecraft, very competitive pricing…..service with a smile.
I went to a huge warehouse last Tuesday with a couple of friends, it is called DFO, Direct Factory Outlet, it used to be full of great clothes that were cheap, end of season etc. All pretty much expensive now, however if you look you can always find a bargain or two. I found this dress for work, it looks funny on the hanger, but looks fantastic on. Actually I looked at it, then put it back, but when I saw it on a mannequin, I went back and tried it on.
I also bought some ankle boots to wear with my pants, which reminds me, I went shopping a couple of weeks ago and bought a pair of black suede ankle boots to wear with tights and dresses, a black dress that I can wear for winter and cooler summer days and a pair of thick tights and I only had to pay for the boots which were ultra cheap, less than $30. I had a gift voucher for the dress and tights.
I will have two full weeks of work in June which will be great, hope I survive working a full week, as I am not used to it. I start the busy three weeks again the week after the 15th April when dance goes back. On Saturday 14th April I am going to meet up with a gorgeous girl who I have known for around 18 years and I am going to do her Encaustic Art class, it is just for two hours, I haven’t seen her for around 10 years, so will be so nice to catch up… and learn something new.
I hope all that snow has melted away and the sun is once again shining on you. It was quite hot here yesterday then a cool change blew through, long sleeves today, good day for crochet and coffee.
Loads of love to you all, till next time.
