One of those perfect moments much sunshine in April!

Middle of the night here...can't sleep yet again!
Probably because l keep falling asleep on the craft room sofa in the sunshine
Although we all managed a nap on the orange sofa on Monday... Brupbrup, Mr T, James myself and Phil on the other end..such a large comfy battered old sofa with space for everyone and we all fell asleep on it after lunch lol

Yesterday at 8.30 in the morning as l walked into the craft room
the sun shone on the orange sofa it was just such a comforting, contented moment, so inviting 
l sat there all day and played hooky, the cats came and went in twos and threes, 
and where l'm snuggled right now with a rainbow duvet and a couple of cats for company
I'm making two in blues for the blue sofa and 2 more, but different colour ways
A variation of stripes to go with the other square one l made months ago
with a granny square reverse
36 chain to start....2 strands of DK, 6mm hook
72 DC sts. in the round 34 each side of the chain and then 2 extra, one each end and 38 rows including the chain row
New Fire pit arrived ready for our BBQ on Royal Wedding day.....not long to go now just 9days away

Next on the list are the garden chair cushions....all striped of the old covers, washed and dried in the sunshine yesterday, ready for later today

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone
Hugs to all xx

  6. What an inviting place to snuggle up in, the colours are wonderful. Your big drawstring bags are great and must be so useful.
    Have a great sunny Wednesday.

  7. What an absolutely gorgeous, colorful living room you have! It's the kind of place I can see dropping by for a cup of tea just for the heck of it, and to get a little bit of crochet done during the day :)

  8. Suz, I love reading your blog and looking at your photos. If I'm feeling a bit down, your blog always has the happiest of colours, it's a joyful place to be. Love the blue cushions, they're fab.

    Happy Easter.
