Time to join in again with Five On Friday hosted by Amy from Love Made My Home.
I have a random selection to share with you this week.
No. 1 - I visited Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve last Saturday. You can read about my visit there in my last post but I didn't show you my indulgent 'must have' purchases that I made from their shop. I love Emma Ball designs and also have a thing about notebooks and bags so I just couldn't resist purchasing these two items. The bag is ideal for carrying around a small crochet project and has already been put to use when I walked to my friends house on Monday for a crocheting session. I am not sure yet as to what I will record in the notebook but at the moment just like admiring it.
No. 2 - Part 2 of the Dance On The Beach Crochet-Along came out on Wednesday. Unfortunately I was working that day but started work on this week's squares yesterday. To date I have completed two and hope to get the other two crocheted over the weekend.
I have chosen the Dance In The Rain colourway, this is what it should look like when completed. I was debating whether to choose the Dance In The Sea or the Rain version. When I selected my kit I hadn't seen what the finished design would look like, now I have seen the photo below I am really pleased that I went for this version.
No. 3 - I have worked really hard to achieve 10,000 steps a day using my Fitbit this week. A lot of my friends seem to achieve far more than I do but I am happy if I can get to 10,000 (this has been proven to be really beneficial to your health - physically and mentally). I am now on a six day streak, am I going to make it today? Hopefully, but I have a busy day baking and tidying in preparation for our monthly craft get-together tomorrow which I am hosting this time around so we will see. Hopefully I can fit in a walk at some stage.
No. 4 - I have purchased some seeds, you might remember that I am trying to make my garden butterfly and bee friendly so I am going to attempt to grow these seeds in pots, wish me luck, I am very much a novice to gardening having had an unmanageable jungle to contend with before our garden was refurbished. I will keep you updated as to whether my seeds flourish (or not)!
No. 5 - as you know I have managed to lose over 4.5 stone in weight over the last year and this week I decided the time had come to sort out all my clothes that no longer fit me. I had a mental block about doing this as I have lost weight so many times only to put it all back on again and needed the larger size clothes again. However this time the weight is definitely not going to creep back on so I took the plunge and have managed to fill six bags with unwanted clothes just in time for the Slimming World clothes throw in aid of Cancer Research UK - what better time to de-clutter!
I hope you have enjoyed my five this week. Please go and visit Amy's blog where you will find links to more 'five' posts.
