Sunshine on a cloudy day

Here in the UK, 2014 has started with rain. We’ve had a very dark day, which has been brightened up for me in two big ways. First, I spent ages having a Skype conversation with a new friend who I have encountered as a result of our blogs – she’s in Australia. so we would never have met if it wasn’t for this amazing technology. I am constantly stunned by the friends I make and by their generosity; if that isn’t enough to brighten a day, I don’t know what is! But I also decided to add a bit of colour to the day, so I found some golden-yellow wool in my stash and made this:

It was too dull to photograph in natural light, so the picture doesn’t really do it justice, but it’s both a lovely pattern, designed by Priscilla Hewitt, and a lovely colour. I hope it brightens your day too.

Happy new year!


ps there’s now a picture of it in natural light on the Masterpiece page

  2. Blimey, it’s not often I have to get sunglasses out in January. That’s a bit bright isn’t it? I’ve made some amazing friends via blogging, it’s not what I expected but I’m so pleased I started.

  3. Now that would be right at home here! It’s a lovely pattern, but as you say, I don’t think the photo does the brilliant colour justice. Lovely to talk to you yesterday, let’s do it again soon – and don’t forget the address!

    It did indeed brighten my day! Although it is really sunny here! I know just what I am doing for “my square” and have project queued it. It has the importance of being next in line, after I finish my son’s amigurumi!
