We had sunshine today. Shock horror!
I had a busy morning in work and then had to run a few errands before coming home and sorting out the tea. My boys are away to watch the talent show this evening with their Dad, one working and one watching, meanwhile I am enjoying a little peace.
Today I have a little hooking project I have finished, another rose but a different pattern, this time two tone. I would have liked to have made it red and white but my Mum always told me you should never have red and white flowers together as it symbolises death.
I can hear her voice in my head and every time I say, but I like red and white together.
Still I have compromised and gone for cream and red instead.
The centrepiece was from my good friend Elaine who sent me a box full of diamante goodies, I think it matches the cream lovely.
You see, Mum's are always right, if I hadn't used cream instead of white this little diamante and pearl centre wouldn't have worked. I have used cream and red cotton yarn.
The flower is really quite big so I am going to play around with the pattern and maybe make it a little smaller for a brooch.
I like to follow a pattern the first couple of times and then tweak it, I do the same in the kitchen too, always changing recipes, some for the better and some, well, we don't mention them!
How does the saying go?
If you can't make a mistake, you can't make anything.- Marva Collins
I like that quote. We learn from mistakes and if we do we don't make the same ones again.
It only remains for me to sign off this evening. I have another morning in work tomorrow and then it's Harbour time at the Gala, let's hope the sunshine's well into the evening and it will be a good afternoon and evening.
Catch you again soon. x
