Keep Calm and Bike On

I've been adding another row of squares to my mood blanket. Slow
but surely.  

I'm crocheting a seat cover for my bike.  I have since got a basket and
a mirror. Of course the basket still needs to be decked out with a nice
sewn liner and maybe some crochet mini bunting for the outside. 
I will post a picture soon.

I have my first Cath Kidston piece, coin purse.  Her stuff is hard to 
come by in Canada but thanks to Ebay.  I also have a purse coming 
soon as well.  Such lovely prints she uses.  

Last weekend honey and I went for a walk through a nature park.

The deer were out in full force. 


And the finches were friendly as well.

Happy weekend all!!

Spring Is Here

Happy Easter all!! It's starting to feel like spring.  
Except for the other day early in the week.
This is what we woke up to mid April.  Go away now.

I have been crocheting a bit. A bit of this and that. 
Some on my ripple. And Easter bunnies I made for
a friends girls, one has her birthday this weekend.

Of which I completed a sewing project for her birthday.
I made her this little purse.

I also pulled out this flower loom I had got from a thrift store.
It made some cute little flowers.

Last weekend my honey got me the bicycle of my dreams. LOL

Hence, making a flower for it. 
I have since got a basket for the
front and now my next project will
be to make a cute basket liner. 
I also want to pimp it out with some 
crochet of course. Seat cover maybe.

I've been for 4 rides this week.  Burning off the winter weight. 

That's all for now.  Enjoy your Easter weekend with your families all!

Another year older and wiser. Now that I'm in my 40's it's not too bad.  I still feel younger at heart but the
body may say different.  Haha. My mom called me on my birthday and sang happy birthday
and reminded me age is just a number.  I had to laugh. 

Anyway, my team at work surprised me with a few goodies.

Yummy Butter Pecan cake and rum. Gotta love spiced rum.

It was the first birthday in a few years that I worked it.  I usually take it 
off for vacation but there was no point being on a Wednesday. So I took Friday off instead.
I haven't really crocheted much this week.  I have got addicted to Farmville's
tablet version of their game. 

I bought myself some Tulips, my favourite.

Honey and I went for a walk in a nature park early in the week as it was
finally nice spring like weather.  I was surprised the deer were out walking
around the paths. There must have been at least 8 we seen.

Last week I forgot to share the cushion I made with these
squares I had got off Ebay a while back.  It really brightens up
our new furniture. Of course I love owlies.
