Nothing to do with kitchens...

Yesterday was spent cooking and crocheting. We had a big full breakfast late then an afternoon of crocheting. In between single and double crochets I roasted a lovely joint of beef for dinner with all the necessary bits. I have decided to take a page out of the Dottie Angel's book and crochet some coat hangers. What a smart cookie she is. And a fantastic way to use up those bits of yarn from the ripple blanket. The wee pink one was just white wood so it needed a pretty sweater. The blue one (done in double crochet, not as nice as single) was a slightly torn satin one so it needed a new look. The other one will be done this afternoon when ironing is complete (little joke there, is it ever complete?).

In between cooking, baking and crochet, I finished this new book from Susan Hill. I wept. Did you? Are there any Simon Serrailler followers out there? I am now reading Agatha's Spider Web. I must say I am not sure where this ironing thing is suppose to be squeezed in.

Oooh lovely.
I am trying to find crochet hangers everywhere at the moment. There seem to be none around here.

Those are very nice. I like anything that helps keep the clothing on the hanger rather than allowing it to slip to the floor. Now crocheting I can do...

Oi, for en fin blogg du har. Bra du la igjen en hilsen på bloggen min slik at jeg fikk link til din ;) Er du opprinnelig fra Norge? Jeg aner ikke om home kolleksjonen til H&M beveger seg utover Europa, men jeg vil da tro det. Jeg ante ikke om denne kolleksjonen i det hele tatt, så det var en flott overraskelse :)

Er det greit om jeg linker deg?
