Hi everybody – first I’d like to wish you all a belated Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope you all were able to spend time with some or all of the people that you love! A couple of days ago Grizz and I went for a drive and spotted swans in a nearby field! There’s something so lovely and graceful about swans – and apparently they mate for life and both male and female (cob and pen) take care of their young, and they live in herds – or bank, bevy, game, team or lamentation (who’d have thought it HUH), and are a symbol of loyalty and teamwork. So I thought this was an apt picture for a post-Valentine post – here’s wishing you all have those in your life on your team, loyal and loving.
I’m making progress, in between work, physio and all the other ‘stuff’ that makes for life around here.
Remember all those little bits that I had cut out last week? Well, some blocks are made from that – here’s just a glimpse (the projects are surprises after all):
I’m really excited about both of these. The first one – 10 blocks completed, 10 more being done by my SIL and then we’ll get them sewn together. The second one – 4 blocks to make one large block, the first of 16 large blocks of this type.
This will eventually become a triangular table mat, and some kind of shape of place mats. Really looking forward to this!
In closing here’s some shots of the full moon of a few nights ago (taken by Grizz):
It was a brilliant evening – followed by a lovely day of sunshine!
I’m linking to WIP Wednesday at TN&TN – a place for Canadian bloggers to share their handiwork. Why don’t you head on over and see what everybody else is doing!
Happy times! Blessings, Peg
