Sunday 12th April - Easter!

He is Risen indeed! Alleluia, alleluia!

(Jesus, obs. He's the one who has risen)

The first Easter without Easter eggs since - since I was born? Probably. I made a chocolate cake this afternoon - I'm out of practice, and it's a bit dry, but will make an excellent chocolate pudding with custard tomorrow.

The days between the last post and today's post seem all to have been fairly similar - a mixture of

I've planted seeds, planted out seedlings, trimmed the edges of the grass, all those bitty jobs. 

A couple more of these flower squares for a mystery 'knit-a-long'. I'm getting better at reading the instructions, and also knowing when to stop and put it aside before it all goes wrong

I've finished one slipper, and am part way through another, which I will post to the Daughter probably in time for her to lose them over the heatwave and be unable to find them again when it gets cold!

I've done a lot of research and thinking about how to join these granny squares which I made throughout last year. I've finally come to the conclusion that I need to border each one in a plain colour and then join them together with the same yarn. I chose a dull air-force blue, and I'm really pleased with the result. 

I'm also trying to do a couple of rows most evenings to make this blanket in time for a present to give to someone (she already knows about it) in August

It looks as though I'm keeping busy, but actually a lot of time is spent sitting around, reading, frittering time away here there and everywhere.

I've played the piano - a few times. Had a go on the saxophone - oh yes - that was a bit of a laugh - I turned out for the first time on Thursday for the 'clap and cheer the NHS' time, and let loose with a blast of 'Lean on Me' and 'O when the Saints'. Quite a few people appeared - I think the row I made might have had a bit of an effect... So I'd better practice again for this Thursday. Something EASY.

Ah well. Another week - a few more zoom lessons, more zoom meetings with friends and family - phone calls and texts to keep in touch - time passes, and another week beckons.

Take care - stay safe...

    Your craft along is going really well! Really impressive!
    I've been playing my flute in the garden on a Friday as Havering Music Service asked musicians to play in their gardens on Fridays at 5pm- I had a child watching me out of window and my neighbours texted to say they loved it!
