Well, thank you so much for the lovely comments about Sammy the Snake!  Much appreciated, as always!

What have I been up to in January?  Well...

... I am now on the border of the Waterlily Blanket!!  It's been a long time coming!  Nearly there now - I hope to show it off fully before long!  (All ends from the squares are sewn in, which was NOT a fun job!  There were soooooo many!)

My new Christmas funky wellies got their first trip out in the snow last weekend!  That was a walk out to the local shop to get a few snacks - during which we found some daffodils reduced to 40p...

I plonked them in a jar, and tied some ribbon round - simple but pretty.  They lasted for days as well, not bad for 40p!  (I didn't leave them on the floor - was just trying to get a picture with some decent light on them, and no junk in the background, ha!)

I baked some cookies while it snowed outside...

Cookies and tea - yum!

I used this recipe and they came out really well!

I must also show off this mug, which was a Christmas present from my Gran.  I love it!

It's a Dunoon one, fine bone china.  It's just so pretty!

Bye for now... better carry on with that border!!!


  1. That blanket is looking very pretty...can't wait to see it finished! Looks like you've had a good month!

  2. I admire your stamina, I have so many projects awaiting finishing. I look forward to seeing your beautiful blanket finished in all its woolly glory! Your cookies look yummy, but I LOVE the tea set you have with them, such pretty colours, and your mug is pretty too. Well done, Granny - good choice!
    I have been enjoying a few bunches of daffs recently too, they remind you that spring is just around the corner, hooray! I guess with all that snow it might feel just a little further away the that!
