Yay! One bright, smiley, happy sock done! I'll try to hurry up with his partner! It's quite hard to find time at present, as school work seems to be time consuming and endless. A bit more effort to work smartly is needed I think and less time reading blogs and pootling around on the internet.
It was while pooling around that I cam across the next must make project of my desire, over at Attic 24; the Coastal Ripple Blanket. I've been mulling over a suitable pattern and colour combo to make little Evie a bed-sized blanket ready for her first birthday in December. Well, this is a 'must make'!
Just look at those gorgeous seaside colours....... sand, sea, blue sky, seaweed and pebbles all in fifteen perfectly matched colours. Fabulous! They evoke so many happy family time memories. I just love the seaside! So, Evie's 'Seaside Ripple Blanket' has begun..... almost. Hopefully there'll be something on the hook to show you next week.
It's been a lovely weekend here in our small corner, so Mr Snoops and I headed off to the North Norfolk coast yesterday to give Oscar a good run on his favourite beach, Holkham.
We called in at Brancaster....
and took a stroll along the coastal path at Morston.
The clouds rolled away as we headed back to the crab hut for lunch..............
fresh crab sandwiches, cockles and a cup of tea. Delicious!
Then on to Holkham. Oscar knows where we're going miles before we get there!!!
Doggy heaven! Time for a stitch or two in the car too!
