Inspired by this pattern and blog (thanks for sharing the pattern Solveig) I was a bit bored yesterday afternoon so I whipped this up. It will be a cushion cover, honest - the sides are already joined together and ready to go, but my camera has just died. The optical illusion you get from this pattern is amazing - edge it in a light colour and you get a star effect, edge it in a dark one and you get a pinwheel. Very clever. I will adapt the pattern slightly though so that the edges aren't quite so wonky.
So, with that pattern in mind, I trotted off to the wool shop on Friday, to stock up on a few yarns to make a blanket in Portugal. All of this cost me less than £10, and even though it's acrylic, it's really soft and doesn't squeak when you work with it :-) I've been a VERY good girl and haven't touched it, even though my fingers have been beside themselves to get going.
And finally, this week's baking - more oaty bakes, this week made with whizzed up blueberries and peaches. Not quite as yummy as last week's but I'll soldier on.
And on that note, I'm off to Portugal for a little holiday. Ahh, happy hooky, beady and reading time all to myself. Bliss.
See you soon. Jo :-)
