Blue - I love you!

Ahhh, we might not have any 'proper' snow around here, but we have had some lovely sunny days, and since I quit working Mondays, weekends have a slightly more relaxed feel to them.
So - languishing is the key!
I knock on the floor when I awake, and hubby who has usually been up for hours already rushes and brews a fresh mug of coffee for me - ah, if only I could sit there all day tapping out instructions from the bedroom, imagining him scurrying around trying to make the house spic and span for when I finally drag my carcase out of bed!

I had been inspired to make some lavender scented sachets for the linen cupboard - well, actually they are going onto my new little Etsy shop - eventually when the computer decides to work properly (why doesn't it listen when I shout at it and bang the mouse up and down???)
Also. a new WIP for my Etsy shop - some children's socks made from a lovely vintage vogue knitting pattern

And then I noticed, how much of my weekend has been 'blue' - I wouldn't say I had a favorite colour, but looking around the house and my life spaces in general, I think I have a definite leaning towards all things blue, the colour of the sky, the sea, my eyes! it is a cold clean colour, fresh, bright...well it always makes me happy!

and my grape hyacinths flowered this week - the best 75p spent in a while!

Your hubby sounds a real gem. Love the colour of the socks you're making and v.jealous as my knitting skills leave a lot to be desired :) Right, I'm off to have a nosey at your Etsy shop now.

Hey thanks for stopping by my blog!
I would only want Calvin's dad to read Hamster Huey and The Gooey Cabluey if he used the silly voices which I understand he doesn't do that willingly!
I love Calvin - especially now I have my very own 6 year old boy*jelly!

Such lovely blue things - I'm off to check out your etsy shop as those sachets look very sweet indeed. Ah, grape hyacinths - spring flowers have to be my favourite. Give me a daffodil and I'm a happy girl x

I love blue! My quilt is taking shape slowly. I like the quilt in your pictures too. Sounds like a good routine for the week, I am a little bit green about the Mondays.

I love the idea of a lonely ram stood transfixed in his field listening to your alarm clock!
(PS - this will make no sense to anybody reading this unless they read your comment on my blog!)
