How was your Valentine's day? I hope you all had a lovely time :) There were so many love-filled posts in blog-land yesterday. They were lovely to read - even better than Christmas! And hearts everywhere :) But I also read so many times yesterday about how people think that Valentine's Day is too commercial and for that reason they are against it, but like I said yesterday I think it is the perfect day to celebrate love in all of it's beautiful forms. Love is great and any reason to show it is good enough for me :)
Anyway, I've made a start on the Tranquility shawl....
These are the first 6 rows and now it's just a 2 repeat all the way through to the lace edge. It's a really simple pattern and now it is going be the same rows over and over I think this is going to be a great project to pick up and put down whenever I get a few minutes spare.
I've been making bread too!
I got a bread maker a couple of years ago for my birthday and it is one of the best kitchen appliances I've ever had. It is so easy to make yummy things with it! To make bread all you need to do is weigh the flour, put in a teaspoon of salt, a packet of yeast and some cold water then press a button and wait.
It's almost a meal in itself. And the smell of freshly baked bread in the kitchen is delicious :)
Yesterday I wanted to share a photo of my calendar for Valentine's day and completely forgot! Here it is:
Hearts, cats and yarn - isn't that a lovely mix?!
Have a happy, crafty weekend!
