My little bit of this big World

Quiet time

 My main focus has been this project, I find it easier to do in natural daylight, so I try and do some most afternoons. I'm about half way, which I find pleasing, it's crazy, but I love making these french knots. 
In the evenings I am crocheting this blanket, it's a good size, I love the shades they work well together and the cotton thread feeling right on this design. I should be knitting, but I am enjoying simple crafts. 

The yarn balls were getting a bit messy, so I decided to pull the center out and wind into a ball, nice and tidy and much easier to use. I am going to use all this pale caramel then the pale blue finishing with the lilac, the balls are not huge, the thread is thin there is a lot more work to do. 
I've cleaned the house from top to bottom in the past 2 days, soon we are driving to Somerset for a weekend with my brother and sister, staying with my brother. Its been almost 2 years since we last visited. No much planned a day out tomorrow with my sister, her choice of where we are going. Saturday I will visit younger brother, he has another knee injury, so I will love to catch up with him and see how well he is doing. Sunday we are out with our lovely Taunton grandsons mummy and daddy. 

We have fuel and a negative covid test result, friends will come in our home every day to feed our cats. 

We travel down on a Thursday and return on Monday as the roads should have less traffic.
