Nearly there!

At last I can report that I have nearly finished two items.  I have finished the crochet project that I started at the beginning of March.  I can't show any pictures or give any details until after crochet club as they must get the first view but it does look good!!

The jacket is nearly finished and providing I get some time to myself tomorrow that will be photographed at my Higham Piecemakers group meeting, as I don't have a tailor's dummy so will need to model it.  I made a big bloomer yesterday by sewing the collar the wrong way up and had to re-cut it and re-sew it!!  The pattern has a stand up Mandarin collar and I should have read the pattern!!  Couldn't believe it when I saw what I had done and the air was rather blue with insults hurled at myself.  "Stupid cow" being the only one I can mention!!

Now these two pieces are finished I shall try and concentrate on finishing some UFOs (Unfinished Objects) of which I have a few.  I must also get gardening before Easter, when all the family are descending on me for lunch on Sunday, and there will be an Easter egg hunt for the grand-children.

By the way, I had a lovely 5.5 mile Nordic walk yesterday following the Nene Way part of the time.  The weather was glorious, birds singing and everywhere is beginning to 'green up' so what could be better.  Our leaders, F and R, arrived in shorts but I am not quite ready for that yet - oh and by the way, I NEVER wear shorts now except in the privacy of my back garden!
