We got up to a lovely sunny day again, lovely clear blue sky, the only downside is Mr B worries about his plants when we're not here. I'm sure this must have been farm land before as the plants flourish so well. It really is nice walking around the site and looking at the beautiful gardens that receive such loving care from their owners. The ground staff cut the grass and tend to the trees. I'd love to see plants around the bottom of the three small trees we have on our plot, hopefully we'll do that next year.
On to creative matters, recently I came upon a lovely blog who's owner Mum, no not my Mum, was organising a blogging blanket chain, the idea is to volunteer to crochet either one or a few squares add them to the blanket then pass it on to the next volunteer. When its the given size it will be donated to someone who needs it. For full details please click on the link to Mum's blog below, please don't be put off if you're a beginner, its simply a granny square original or for the more advanced something a little different. I've been crocheting for a few years now but just plain blankets, finally mastered the granny square and now I'm doing it correctly I love it.
I received the blanket from Joy, along with a lovely parcel of goodies from her stash, thank you Joy they're great and will be used.
Both the blanket and goodies came wrapped in lovely blue tissue paper, aren't I a very lucky girl :0)
The blanket is beautiful, the colours are so different to what I normally use but despite being crocheted by several people they co-ordinate so well. I added a few lighter squares, some plain granny and 3 different variations I've just learned. These are my squares below, I have so enjoyed being a small part of this bloggy blanket chain and I know you will too.
This is the blanket now my squares are attached, its just waiting for the next person to volunteer, would that be you?
I have been busy on my own things which I will share in another post, I don't want to detract from the blogging blanket.
Take care and enjoy the sunshine, I'll be indoors sewing lol.
