Did any of you watch the celebrations and happenings on the Thames today? I thought Queen Liz and her family looked fabulous, despite the horrible (truly British) weather. Her and Philip did extremely well to be standing for the entire time too!! Very proud. Do you all have your bunting up? We put ours up yesterday, although it has now been moved from the position it is in in the photos as my Dad didn't like the placement, so after a lot of fuss and attaching of string, and threading through upstairs windows, it is now proudly waving strung out between the two upstairs windows.
And after a day's hard work sitting in front of the television watching the eager, albeit somewhat bedraggled, crowds stand for hours in the freezing cold pouring rain, what better way to finish off the day with some crochet, a mug of hot chocolate and some choccy biscuits!!
Whilst crocheting, it did occur to me that the blanket I am making for my brother is in very patriotic colours of red, white and blue!! (I have had to put it on the table to photograph as I am running out of places that it will lie flat in its entirety- apologies for the flash too, the lighting isn't fantastic in my house)
Button Boutique in Leicester. So we are now going with the theory that it will be as long as the bundles of wool will allow!
