Goodbye Bertie ........

It is a very sad day today, my mum has had to make the dreadful decision to have one of her beloved dogs put to sleep, & to make it worse it's her birthday !

You where a gorgeous & brave little boy & a great friend, we will miss you so very much Bertie Boy x

Toothache, Birthday & GSB Progress ........

The last two weeks have been rather eventful !!
I developed dreadful toothache that turned into an infection in my jaw, OMG the pain was unbearable & my face swelled up to 3 times the size. I didn't sleep for 4 nights, I was like the walking dead ! I ended up having to have an enormous dose of penicillin which got rid of the pain & swelling but has left me feeling washed out.
Luckly I woke up on my birthday, after the first good night sleep in a week, pain free & feeling oh so much better. One of my lovely friends made me a yummy cake & was decorated by her daughter & the little men which cheered me up no end, & I was able to have a large slice with my morning coffee.
Over the past few evening I have been hooking like mad, my first GSB for the little men is half way done & looking good. This is such a lovely, easy pattern to follow that it just seems to flow through my fingers. I am hoping that I will have this finished by the weekend !

Rainbow Colours ........

Firstly, I would like to thank all you lovely ladies out there in blog land that sent such lovely kind comments on my finished GSB. I am very touched, your feedback means a lot to me. ♥

Now onto some hooky news.

Because my sitting room & bedroom colour scheme is pinks, purples, greens & blues I am quite restricted with colour for most of my crochet projects. Not so with the little men's room, which is a riot of red, blue, yellow & green. Here I can splash out with vibrant colours that are fun & jolly.

After having so much fun making my GSB I have decided to make two more for the little men's beds, knowing them though they will be bringing them down stairs as they love to snuggle under my blankets on the sofas. I have my work cut out if I am to get these done before Autumn take hold, but I'm up for the challenge & hopefully they won't take so long as I am going to use Vanna's Choice which is a chunky weight & a 6mm hook.

I can't wait to start the first one tonight once the little men are tucked up in bed & I'll keep you posted with my progress !!

bye for now
