It's a very hot Sunday morning here. Windy and very hot. We are all having a slow start after a pretty sleepless night. This weekend has been our local Westernport Festival, a highlight on the calendar of all the kids and teenagers around here. There is a carnival with rides and lots of stalls and activities down at the foreshore and a parade down the main street. It is usually a great community event, but it has been such a hot weekend (over 40 degrees yesterday), I don't think as many people have gone to it.
The evening and night seemed to be the time to go and have a look, the fireworks last night was full of people. I love a fireworks display, and these were really beautiful, pretty impressive for a little community!
After the fireworks, a lot of the families take their young children home to bed and the teenagers take over the place, nothing too extreme, just having a bit of fun and pretty well behaved. I hope they were well behaved anyway, as my eldest was one of these kids this year, hanging out with his mates. They are all nice kids, so I am sure there were no problems. I will hear all about it later when he comes home from his mates place.
Anyway......... I have been trying to distract myself from worrying about teenage antics with a bit of crochet love.
This granny squares pattern is from the wonderful Royal Sisters blog. I am having fun with some tiny hooks (1.5mm) and embroidery thread. I had a little revelation the other day. I was looking for some more interesting colours in cotton thread, and realised I could use embroidery thread for crochet as well as needlework. So many colours!! Yay! The sky's the limit now!
Look at these lovely colourful cottons!
And here is the actual size of my squares all sewn together, quite small isn't it!
This is just the start of this little idea, I will show you what I am going to do with these when I see if it is going to work how I imagine.
So, have a good weekend, and stay cool if you are in Melbourne, we are in for a scorcher!
