Some Pictures



hi my dear blog readers. I wish you could see me type this blog post right now. I am sitting on the floor, in front of the warm fire place. actually a little too close, so my t-shirt is too warm to touch. you know what I mean? cross over my legs is Floyd, asleep. and beside me is the laptop. this position I can do for hours, it is so cozy ~ and perfect for a Monday evening to start off the week.
I wonder what your position is while you read this?

in the pictures you see bits and pieces of last week. I made some good progress with the baby boy blanket I am working on, I shot quite a few pictures for Gatherings magazine over the course of three days. on the bottom right you can see the mess I make when shooting, and also see the bigger picture of how I take about 70% of the pictures that are on this blog. weather wise it is really Winter, we haven't had temperatures above zero degrees for weeks, snow loads keep coming and going. therefore I had to take a picture of the blue sky that came by this weekend. it makes the world so much brighter...

I will show a little report on the progress I made with the baby boy blanket tomorrow.

hugs, straight from the fireplace to you ~ now where is my tea?

  1. Beautiful pictures. Everything I like is in them. I need to get making a baby boy afghan too. Your pattern looks pretty simple and I like it very much! Stay cozy!

  2. Love to seat really close to the fireplace. Never too hot for me. I'm working on a ripple blanket at the moment but have to make a baby lanket before March. I'm laying down is my bed... Catching up on blog reading and almost ready to go to sleep. No fireplace though :)

  3. I am cuddled up warm and cosy in a pink fuffy dressing gown (my daughters say I look like an adult marshmallow) and I am catching up on all of my favourite blog posts sitting on the floor close to the fire - bliss. Sorry forgot also have big mug of coffee to hand - even more bliss :)

  4. Beautiful pictures! I love Marie Claire Idees. I am just sitting at my kitchen table drinking tea in my flannel pjs. I wish were next to a fire with a cuddly pet but we don't have a fireplace or any pets (just toddlers).
