Well what can I say? I have been working and not been doing much else of interest again. Hope you all had a great Easter. We have had beautiful spring weather and have even had the heating turned off. We went to Sam and Sunnie's new house for dinner last week which was lovely but I forgot to take any pictures. It is a pretty house, and has a huge kitchen which I am quite envious of.
Why a chick of course! I made it using the pattern in the Make: Craft magazine by Anna Hrachovec whose website is mochimochiland . Actually I made him about a quarter the size he was meant to be by halving the number of stitches and rows, which is probably why he is quite difficult to turn from egg to chick. I missed off the embroidered crack and eyes on the egg as eggs just don't have eyes in my world.
We never went to see Enchanted when it was on at the movies so we got it out of Blockbusters to watch last night when there was absolutely nothing worth watching - not even slightly. I have to say if I am being honest that I was a little bit disappointed. Some bits only made sense once we'd seen the deleted scenes - seems to me they weren't as unnecessary as the director seemed to think. Also the whole magic thing. The poor old chipmunk suddenly couldn't talk in the real world, but she could still summon all the local animals to help her clean, and produce dresses from curtains just like that. I think it would have been better if she had to learn to cope without the magic.
I am falling a little behind with my assignments and challenges for March. I have not yet had a goat spinning although I have purchased the book recommended by Alarming Female in my comments - Thank you it looks like exactly what I need. I have had the idea for my March QAL block - the theme for which is 'Hope'. I am going to do Elpis the Greek Goddess of Hope who was the only one to remain in Pandora's Box (which I gather was actually a jar!) when the silly girl opened and all the evils of the world escpaed. I have had some chocolate, but it has been the 70% cocoa medicinal kind, and I have eaten only a small piece at a time. We have been watching Paul McKenna's program, 'I can make you thin' with interest. We watched the second episode while eating our dinner so I guess we haven't fully submerged ourselves in it yet!
