It's been really hot in Madrid recently. REALLY hot. 40ºC or 103ºF. So hot, even the flowers close up and shy away from the sun and heat:
These flowers are so pretty normally. I keep trying to get a photo of them to show how pretty they are. Half of the flowers are a deep purple and the other half are a mix of yellow and red flowers. I'll share a photo with you all when I can :)
When it gets this hot, our diet switches to salads and cold dishes:
I have been making cakes though...but I've not been baking...
I've been busy making yarn cakes! These are the best kind of cakes that exist :)
When they are wound you can really appreciate the different colors in a skein of yarn.
I think that yarn often looks even prettier when wound like this.
Carrying on with yarn news, I had a delivery arrive today:
I've been waiting every morning this week in case it arrived. It's like being a kid on Christmas morning again when I wait for a yarn delivery. Do you feel the same when you're waiting for a crafting package to arrive? Some women get like that over shoes and things, but for me it's only with yarn :)
Aren't these summery tones:
I've got something special planned for this yarn but I need to finish off some wips first. I'm trying very hard to have a maximum of 5 wips at any one time at the moment.
In this order were 4 skeins of Caron Simply Soft:
Oh yes! Caron know how to make big balls :)
My birthday is in April. I can't believe three months have flown by since I got given this beautiful gift by my husband:
I've tried to get a really sharp photo but I hope this is enough for you to see what it is.
It's a crochet hook charm necklace!
I love this necklace. I love wearing a hook - it's nearly as much fun as holding one :) It's so nice to have a piece of jewelry that feels unique to me. I've had people ask about it and when I tell them it's a great conversation starter.
Do you like to wear jewelry? Do you have any craft related pieces? Do you make your own jewelry?
I've joined twitter this week too. You can find me there: @ElizyArtCrochet
I sent my first ever tweet this morning. If you have a twitter account, let me know your name and I'll drop by and say hi :)
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
