Monday, Monday, hook, yarn and smelling of roses!

Good afternoon all, how are you this Monday?
I am working the rest of the week so today has involved me getting on top of the housework, all the boring stuff out of the way as soon as I can!
The dog and I had a lovely walk too, there was definitely a spring feel in the air, not too cold and the sun was shining.  It was a lovely start to the day.

How was your weekend?
I was only working till lunch time on Saturday so enjoyed eats out with the family at Findhorn Piers cafe which is inside Findhorn Yacht club.  The food was lovely and great views out over Findhorn bay.
Then I had a lazy afternoon crocheting and watching the rugby.

On Sunday we had a lovely big roast dinner and quite a lazy day again with a little more crocheting on my blanket.  I should really have done my ironing but I was very naughty and crocheted instead, well it was Sunday!

Remember the rose I showed you together with the link earlier last week?
The lovely Samantha has made that one, here is my first attempt.

At this point I hadn't finished it off but you get the general idea, I think it will make a nice broach once finished or maybe a hair slide?
This was the only playing, sorry crafting I did over the weekend apart from my little shapes for my blanket of which I made another half a dozen.

Did you do anything exciting over the weekend?
Mine was actually quite relaxing, most unusual!
Still I have a busy week this week, in work now till Friday then off before back in Saturday.
Have a good week.  Catch you soon.  x
