this morning we went to the cinema to see "The Lego Ninjago Movie".
A better picture of the block I did yesterday for Lily Pond.
Block one of "Persian Tiles Eastern Jewels" done.
Marks crochet so far................
Anais tried her new hair crimpers earlier and crimped her hair.
We popped to the shops to get some fresh air. All we bought were some sunglasses (for me) in the New Look sale, £5 reduced to 50p!
It was cold and snowy today.
I finished part four of "Elements Cal"
Roman started to build his Lego Technic motorbike.
We had a nice day at home.
Roman spent the day building his Lego Technic boat which is now finished.
Mark and Anais worked out how to use Anais' mini mixing desk.
I started week four of "Elements". This is at the end of week three.
Mark started his "Spice of Life" blanket, one row done so far.
Unfortunately he has to undo it all as he just realised he did this in a 3mm hook and it needs to be done in a 4mm hook as its too tight. Oops!
I finished the Spice of Life blanket. It has a few extra rows added here and was done in five colours, lime, aqua, teal, medium blue and navy. The border is a row of UK double crochet, a row of UK treble crochet and a row of crab stitch.
The weight is 585g. The page for this blanket is here.
So far this year I have made EIGHT crochet blankets!
* Sophie's Universe
* two Spice of Life
* two daisy blankets (one maroon colour and one purple colour)
* two 100 square granny square blankets (one in blues and one red and blue)
* one willow square block
Charity shop goodies, four balls of wool (370g) for £2.
Roman had a picnic at school today for the Queen's birthday. He made a flag and a crown.
This evening Anais was in the regional "POP" (Player of Potential) concert playing a clarinet solo. Well done Anais you did well and we are proud of you! xx
It was much cooler today with rain tonight.
Spice of Life blanket so far.
I had a jar of orange marmalade to use up that nobody liked so I made this cake. (They don't like the cake either!)
Mark hired a film for us to watch, "The Fifth Wave". Roman was scared!
Spice of Life blanket so far..........
When Roman came home he finished the kennel.
This evening I had a LONG soak in the bath. We were a mad house as...........
..............Anais was playing (of all things!), Auld Lang Syne on the flute..............
While Roman thought it would be a good idea to make a rocket and pretend he was in Apollo 13! "Houston, we have a problem!"
Today is Romans 9th birthday, Happy Birthday Roman! xx
He was up, dressed ready for school and ready to open presents by 6.45AM!
I finished his Spice of Life blanket last night with all ends sewn in too, that is a first!
Pattern for this blanket is here and is lovely and fast to work up with easy and clear instructions.
My stats -
DK weight wool with a 4mm hook
Roman before school!
I made a three layer Victoria sponge cake with a Lego Harry Potter theme as Roman is Lego and Harry Potter mad. I was really pleased with how it came out and it took AGES to make all of those little Lego bricks!
We ordered the cake topper from here last Tuesday evening and it was delivered on Thursday morning. I think it was only £4 too and included postage so I was pleased with it. The Harry potter pieces on the top are from his Harry Potter Lego game.
We all went to the pub for tea and then everyone came back here for a slice of cake.
Thank you everyone for Romans cards, presents and money, he has had a lovely day.
This was how he left it tonight, he was building Lego before bed!
I am Michelle (40), mum to Anais (16) and Roman (11), been married to Mark (44) for 16 years, stay at home mum.
