This week started off as one of those average weeks after a school holiday, where everything slips back into the normal routine.
Had a great WI meeting on Tuesday where we were shown how to make lovely chocolately treats for Mother's Day, Easter or whenever you fancy them. We were told about an Easter bonnet competition for next time too- I'll keep you posted!
I've been busy knitting my blanket strips, and have now finished number 6 and I'm on square 3 of 10 of strip 7 of 8...dare I start to think that the end is in sight?? Well, it could be, but I have made the classic mistake of starting another project again! This time, it's not my fault- it's my daughter's fault...
I've mentioned the scheme before, it's part of the cultural Olympics for London 2012, set up by Woolsack, where the idea is for people to knit, crochet or felt cushions using British Wool to give to the participating Olympians at the summer and paralympics: http://www.woolsack.org/ I've already made one cushion so this is number two. Not sure if I'll manage any more, but you never know. I'm using Rowan Scottish Tweed and it will have grey/red on one side and grey/pink on the other, as that's all the wool I have left! I managed to get quite a bit done, sitting watching the gymnastics as I went.

The rest of the weekend has been pretty low key for us, as we were all exhausted after Friday's early start. I've mostly been knitting and gardening - well moving the last of the rubble from the garden after demolishing our old garage last year so I can reclaim it as a veggie plot.
Finally, I intend to put my feet up this afternoon and watch Liverpool win the Carling Cup at Wembley. If they don't win, it won't be mentioned in future posts...!
Have a good week everyone, especially to Jill and family (Norty Corner) who have a tough few days ahead yet xxx
