It was a pink week

Last week was a very pink week, I received a stunning Pay it Forward package from the lovely Heather.

a very cute bag and corsage, the bag is lovely pink wool fabric and lined with satin all perfectly stitched and the corsage is knitted with some of my handspun, I love it. Thank you very much.

My second pink package was from the lovely Dee and contained yarn to knit something for my two sisters-in-law, not sure what yet but something pretty.

I did a little pink spinning at the weekend with the intention of knitting some corsages, I will show you pics when they are done, I had a little trouble finding something green in this house for leaves.....

The birthday socks are not yet done,sorry J, I will take them with me when I go to Marseille this weekend. I am off for 2 days of Nancy Bush workshops, which should be great. I have just found out that there is a place still free, so if anyone is interested in attending , let me know :0)

I have finished the Vogue Cardi so just need to sew it up once all the pieces are dry, yipee.
Just the very heavy, very warm, Cobblestone to finish up now and of course the multitude of odd socks lying around ;0)

And I finished my Spring things shawl, which is getting some use as the weather has gone back to being windy and cold :0(

That all the pink for now, more soon.......

Its all pink

Well, the sewing project went well, jeans are all finished and being worn right now, despite the sunshine,

I finally managed to get a photo of the finished shirt, this shirt was the first sewing project, J really wanted a Paul Smith one but couldn't afford the 280euro price tag, so he made this one instead, its not too shabby either.

He now has a couple more pieces of stripey fabric and needs to find some others to co-ordinate. Finding fabric is not too much of a chore in this house ;0)

The shawl is coming on and I have almost finished the second chart, which I am doing nupp-less and with beads instead.

The sun is finally shining in Grenoble and its all green and flowery outside, today is a holiday and we have only no2 son who loves to be an only child.
We went to the park for a picnic, which turned this child into a superhero, he has been telling me since he was 3 that he would be Batman when he grew up, seems like he meant it,LOL

Thank you for all your lovely comments, its looking quite positive on the job front but as usual the company are dragging their heels about making any announcements.

My FIL has finished his Radiotherapy and is doing not too badly, tired and not sleeping and not able to concentrate to read but all in all not as bad as he expected to be.

And finally, they cut the grass at the little park yesterday, it must have been after lunch as they only cut this one wiggly line, bizarre!
