Once my mindee was picked up at half one, I immediately tidied up the toys and put them away, and then made myself a refreshing strawberry and elderflower drink with fizzy water - yum, and settled down to crochet.
Damh the Bard on spotify, a lovely cooling breeze flowing through open windows and doors - ah yes, bliss.
As mentioned yesterday, I had to frog some of the back piece of the dress because I realised I'd mis-measured and it was 2 inches too short. Having previously completed the back section, I decided to leave froggy woe behind and continue with the front section. Alas, I'm now at the shoulder straps (i.e. virtually finished) - but the pattern instructs me to measure it agains the back to ensure the pieces are the same length (shaping is a little different on the front), so front section has been laid down and work has commenced again on the back section.
I suppose in all, this was a few hours dedicated hooking and I was beginning to get a bit sighy and achy eyes - time for a break! Slice of Rye's cake to perk me up and I decided to settle down and get on with building his tree house:
WOW! I know, I just cannot get over how big it is.. and a certain girly pride that I put it together myself :-) And yes, I did have a little play with the pulleys and what not. It is rather fabulous - gosh, I hope Rye likes it and I am so looking foward to him coming home, (his dad asked to keep him an extra night), tomorrow so we can play together with it!
Big kid? Moi?
Right back to hookiness ;-)
