How was your weekend? What crafting did you do?
I made this:
It's called hearts desire doily and you can find the pattern on the red heart webpage.
It's a really simple pattern and is very fast to make. I made mine with a 4mm hook and dk yarn. It measures 28cm/11inches.
I was thinking that this pattern in zpagetti yarn would made a really cute bath mat.
Now talking of red heart, look at what arrived for me this morning:
A mountain of red heart yarn!
I've got the perfect project planned for all that yummy yarn but this week we're going to have a heat wave here and I don't know how much crocheting I'll be doing with thick, warm yarns.
Look at these temperatures:
Uhhhhh I know lots of people love summer but it can be a real pain sometimes. I love the autumn and spring and the warm temperatures but when we start nearing 40º in summer I just want to move somewhere cool and be able put on a sweater!
Still, I won't complain too much because it could be worse. Have you read about the heatwave in California? They've reached 54º! The hottest I've ever seen was officially 45º in the shade and that was way too much for me!
Someone else who isn't too keen on the summer temperatures is my little feral friend. I can barely get her to open her eyes even for her favourite treats:
She's so adorable that despite the heat I'll be going to see her every day :)
I hope you all have a wonderful start to the week!
