Week 4/52 22-28/365

This week has been really manic (well manic by comparison to our usual slow pace of life anyway). I have been a lot of places, seen a few people, done a few things. So busy, in fact, that although I always carry my camera with me, I just forgot to stop and take photos. This time next week, all will be revealed, but in the mean time, here are some of the pictures I DID remember to take this week.

I am making this blanket for my dear friend Kate's first grandchild, due in November.

Here's one I made earlier, lots of pink squares, waiting for the most tedious part of the process, stitching them all together.

Despite the best efforts of all the local pigeons, we have some new grass growing on the bald patch.

A new clutch(?) of ducklings appeared on the pond, as I tried to get the right shot, Mr. Drake decided to come and see what I was up to.

This isn't all of them, there were probably about 12 altogether (ouch, mummy duck!)

27/365 We had some very welcome rain, and this little man was happy to stand out and have a wash.

Oli is home from Uni for the summer, along with the better part of his wardrobe in need of a wash.

Love the picture of the robin having a wash!! I too will be doing the 'uni' wash in a few weeks!!! Lets hope the rain holds off then, so I can get it dry!!!

love the squares .... I too hate sewing them up but I've found some crochet blogs where that show you how to crochet them together as you go along .... much, much easier :-)
