Grey days

It's been a melancholy week: aside from one day of sunshine the weather has been grey, drab and cold and I have to say that my mood seems to have sunk to a similar level.

There are signs of spring everywhere though to give hope and provide much needed snippets of colour and a tease of the more beautiful days to come. I've been really enjoying all the snowdrops that I've been seeing around and the daffodils getting ready to bloom.

Another thing cheering me up is my new slippers. It's a running joke between Mr f&f and I that I go through slippers at a phenomenal rate and clearly spend too much time shuffling around inside - but these make me smile everytime I look down and I really don't mind staying in for just a little bit longer!!!!

I have managed a little bit of crafting. In my continued bid to try and organise things a bit more I made myself a jewellery holder using a 50p thrifted frame, some cup hooks (about 20p) and some fabric I had lying around. It's working quite well and as I can now see my necklaces I'm wearing them a lot more!

And finally (but by no means unimportantly!) I've been hook, hook, hooking away at the border of the sky blanket and.......(trumpet fanfare)..... I finished it today! Can you believe it?! Finally finished! Whoo hooooo!!! A few little bits of tidying up and it will be ready for it's Ta-Dah. I can't even begin to describe how good it feels to have completed it.

I hope you're finding some snippets of colour in your everyday

Todays sky ● grey, overcast. Miserable!

Grey indeed, but such pretty snowdrops! I saw some blossom poking through this morning, and you've reminded me to buy some daffodils they are always so cheery.

The Sky blanket is complete?! fantastic, I can't wait to see a picture of it.
Wishing you a sunnier week

I've been loving watching you crocheting this blanket and looking to see how you describe the sky in each post. I can't wait for its big Ta-Dah :)

February can be grim but I tell myself Spring will very soon be here. Love your slippers - such fun! And your necklace hanger looks great - anything that stops chains knotting themselves impenetrably has my vote! Can't wait to see the sky blanket in her full glory! E x

Oh I know, daffodils are one of my favourites as well. They always just seem so hopeful somehow! x

Sonia said...

Ah thanks Chrissie. Hopefully soon for the big reveal :) x

Thanks E :) I know what you mean about necklaces, they can be worse than yarn to untangle sometimes, can't they?! I can't wait for spring - when all the bulbs start flowering I know that warmer days will soon be on their way! x

Your slippers are fab, I love the colours, and the jewelry holder is a great idea.

Oh my goodness, yey to the blanket being finished! I've enjoyed seeing it's progress and shall look forward to seeing it now.
