Crafting up a Storm...

Hi folks...I've been crafting up a storm...busy busy snug and warm in the cubbyhole while the weather outside was frightful...yes winter is back with a vengeance...
and as if the slipper slidey snow wasn't enough to contend with...I was struggling to stay on my feet with the gale force winds...thankfully hanging on to my trusty "built like a coffee table-four legs are better than two"...furry bundle of golden deliciousness kept me from taking off Mary Poppins style.
It's perfect weather for staying indoors and ticking the jobs off the crafty list...remember this...
 the knitting bit of the shawl scarf is finished and...
 half the fringing is done...hopefully I'll finish the other half tonight watching telly...
and there's nothing quite like a bowl of home made Lentil Soup to warm you up after a chilly lunchtime stroll...
so while that was cooking...it was off to the cubbyhole to cook up a crafty storm of my own with this month's Timmie tag...
also done and dusted and I'll be sharing later...
Woohoo it's Friday and I'm looking forward to a date with the Friday girls...I've missed the last few get togethers so today we're kicking up our heels and treating ourselves to a pamper session...a yummy lunch and a good old chinwag.
Stay safe and warm my bloggy friends and I'll see you all tomorrow over at Penny Black Saturday.
Hugs Kath xxx

The shawl scarf is beautiful and you may have inspired me to finish a sweater project of my own. In my defense, I will say that successful carpel tunnel surgery will help also. And there is nothing better than homemade soup...forget that canned stuff!

Hi Kath, what a beautiful piece...I love knitting too over the colder months and I've started making homemade/homegrown pumpkin and parsnip soup with some added extras this year. It goes down a treat Kath after being in the cold, enjoy your friday and love to buddy! Ruby x

Well, I for one I'm hoping your neck of the woods stays relatively clear, or we won't be able to spend Christmas with my parents this year! The kids are really looking forward to it, so I've already warned my dad he may have to take up position on Glen Shee with a snow shovel! lol.

Looking forward to seeing the tag!! x

The shawl looks amazing - and lovely and cosy too (and judging by the weather you will need it!). The soup looks gorgeous too. Have a safe and warm weekend. Hugs, Anne x

I have been doing some knitting too Kath.I have finished a jumper for my neighbour's grandson. She started it and has been so busy she hasn't finished it. He is coming tomorrow so we have washed and dried it ready for him. We have not had the weather too bad here in Cheshire... we are so lucky ! X

Hi Kath your shawl is lovely and the fringe will finish it off beautifully. Very handy on a summers evening out, you don't always want to put on a jacket. Your soup looks great, I may just make some on Sunday too, it was tattie soup last week. Have a good weekend...Trish
