Since my last postings, I have been playing catch up after the works. The cleaning seemed to go on and on and on… Dust is still appearing and will be for some time.
This Berger cropped jacket has been finished for some time, but I wasn’t too sure about it. However, I wore it this week and a number of people said how much they liked it.
The colour is lovely, but I have found it tricky to match. I thought it would go with blue, but it doesn’t somehow; works with black and will maybe work with white too.
The weather somehow is not quite up to wearing white – ‘c’est bizarre’ as they say round here. lots of rain, sunny intervals and not all that warm either.
Fortunately, it was quite kind to us on Thursday and Friday for our visitors from Skye. It was very enjoyable having a Scottish blether.
Another pic.. It is still very busy round here – the work on the house is very nearly finished, and we have had the delight on no workmen this afternoon. I escaped to the garden centre and got some more plants to finish off my pots. I finished off my hanging baskets last week and they look as if they’ve settled well – interested to note that in French they call them ‘corbeilles anglais’ (English baskets). All we need is some good weather to get them going; it’s still pretty changable.
This latest Bergere production is just finished. It is worked in ‘Mirage’ which is a new yarn for 2008. The pattern features in the Spring Summer magazine no 511. This is another commision for Tracy, and I need to get it parcelled and off to her this week.
