Happy Jubilee weekend for everyone who is celebrating. With both my partner and I being self-employed, this celebration sneaked up on us (without the thought of an extra day off, we didn’t have it our calendars and as it turned out deadlines forced us to work). We did however get into the spirit somewhat with a nice afternoon tea with my parents and spotting some yarn bombed post boxes with crocheted queens taking centre stage. I am in awe at those who create these fantastic yarn bombs as they definitely spread a lot of joy! I also got in some quality crochet time today, so at least felt that I was crocheting like a queen.
This week, we are starting on the pattern that will be picked out in pomegranate.
