I know I said I wasn't going to take the flower lankie to France with me, but as there was room in the car, and I was in the mood ( for pastelly crocheting ), I took it along anyway. Of course I didn't get anywhere near as much done as I had intended to, Poppy saw to that, but at least I did a little work on it.
This is my favourite winter crochet spot, by the fireplace, in my favourite Lloyd Loom chair -
Ahhh, so cosy, I miss it already and we have only been back in England for a few days.
I crocheted a multicoloured border round the lankie, I thought that would go well with the multicoloured flowers which would eventually been sewn to the squares -
And this is the reason why I didn't get as much done as I had planned -
Yep, thats my darling Poppy, aka Popplemonster, making herself very comfortable on my lankie! I had spread the lankie out over the settee so that I could place the flowers properly, turned round to get a couple more to sew on, and quick as a flash she was on it. And stayed there. Wouldn't be moved. Couldn't be moved. You try and move a stubborn 80lb Ridgeback when she doesn't want to be moved, lol.
And as Poppy snuggled down on my blanket, Hector wanted to be cosy and snuggly as well. DS obliged, got a blanket, made himself comfy on the other settee himself, and Hector was blissfully happy -
Its a hard life, being a dog!
