Colour everywhere

I'm halfway through my shawl. I love it , but if I am honest it is beginning to be a bit of a chore .I'm determined to finish.I want to to be 4 rows wider and 21 squares in length. At the moment is is 17 squares long.This is the softest yarn ever from here .
Have you ever had that moment when you are out clothes shopping and suddenly you spot the perfect yarn combination.Well, I did and just had to buy this maxi length peacock dress. I'm now on the hunt for some yarns just like this. I love the colours.I want to make a shawl in these colours,as soon as I finish current project.
A lazy leisurely Sunday underneath our blankets My granny stripe and my daughter's granny square kept us warm.I love snuggling under these because they are made by me with love , they still make me smile every time I look at them. It feels me with joy when I see my family cuddled in my blankets. Moments like this are so special .

These plastic side plates are from sainsbury's I had to have a set. I love my mug of tea and my biscuits on one of these.they look lovely stacked up don't you think?
This yarn screamed at me .I found a heart pattern on the net and an hour later a scarf was born .For the life of me I cant find it.I was so sure I added it to my favourites.It is such a easy pattern as soon as I find it I will share it.
I'm off to cook so dinner enjoy your day.
