Gosh isn't it hot these days.
We have had little or no rain for ages and everywhere is looking very parched. It does mean I stay inside a lot more as I burn very easily so I have managed to do a bit of knitting and even a little bit of card designing as well. Lots of sport watching with cricket and tennis top of the list at the moment.
I have this very old pattern of a footballer so I did try to update it a little bit--I think it looks a bit like Wayne Rooney
Linda and Graham came to stay and she is still shoe mad so it gave me the idea to make some cards with shoes on them. The two without quotes on the front have them under a pull up flap and the cards just have a general best wishes verse inside so suitable for lots of events
Peter Rabbit is back in fashion as there is a new film with him in it. Years ago I used to knit all the Beatrix Potter characters and the patterns were free in a magazine. The very same patterns are now fetching as much as £40 on e-bay but mine were thrown away years ago. This is the nearest I could get to a PR pattern and I made the teapot version. We have a cafe called the Woolie Teapot in town and I thought I might ask them if they would like it for their window display.
Got up very early to watch Andy Murray play a match in the US. He did win but he was very emotional after it all finished. Such hard work for him after the hip operation.
Have a great day and a happy weekend
Love Chrissie xx
