Today we have...
1. An almost finished crocheted something or other, to be revealed very soon - I've almost run out of yarn which is the determining factor as to how big it will be.
2. A poor little sick girl. She started to perk up by teatime though so I think it'll be back to school for her tomorrow.
3. The real reason for this post. I finished my Japanese Flower Scarf a week or so ago by adding on another three flowers. And that'll do it because I ran out of yarn in certain colours and I really wanted to work on something else instead!
I only got round to photographing it today.
I notice that Lucy of Attic 24 (responsible for popularising this pattern) has just done her Ta Da post for this scarf today too.
Mine is 18 flowers in total (just a scarf), she did 46 (for a shawl).
We had the same idea of photographing it on a garden chair though my effort was rather half-hearted, a bit of a jumble. Notice the sunshine though and lack of snow, woo hoo!
I haven't blocked mine. After seeing Lucy's post today I'm wondering if I should after all. I'll think about it...
While in the garden I check on the crocuses to find that most of them have survived the snow.
We also have our first dwarf daffodil.
Now back inside, and looking out the side of the living room window we can see the bush beloved by sparrows (and much disliked by me as I have to trim it every year and it's about 7ft tall and very round)
Looking closer, I catch two lady sparrows posing beautifully. Despite being only poor little sparrows - no colourful feathers have they, I think their markings are very pretty.
