On Saturday we woke up to the sun shining brightly in a clear blue sky. After a few moments of silence – what was this strange light? – we decided to jump on the train and go for a walk to make the most of the sunshine. We went up to Skipton, on the edge of the Dales, and enjoyed a nice warm lunch as well as a stroll – it was in fact absolutely freezing and the sun made no difference whatsoever! It did however cast a beautiful light on this dry stone wall, and the bright green of the moss and algae looked wonderful.
I liked the seed pod poking out of a nook in the wall like a little hedgehog – did you see it?
I also liked this moss glowing in the sun a little further on.
Back at home, these daffodils are looking gorgeous!
And finally, the first pieces of a new crochet project – a granny square blanket! I’ve spent so long looking at pictures and patterns online, I couldn’t decide what I actually wanted to do, so it has taken me ages to actually sit down and make anything. In the end I decided to pick some colours and just start! I made a few of these colourful squares and thought they looked lovely… but weren’t what I wanted in my blanket. Once I put the cream border on, though, I felt the colours all seemed to come together – so it’s full steam ahead for my blanket. And with the temperatures here still struggling to get above freezing, I don’t think there’s going to be a problem in using it!
