The last one

Yesterday was a day of interruptions.  There were people in and out all day, unloading boxes, taking off garage roofs, leaving new materials for garage roof etc.  I knew some of it was happening before the day started, but not all of it.

Before the major disruption started, I finished the last of the fabric baskets I had prepared.

 I couldn't start any of the other fabric projects I had prepared, they all need zips.  I found the one I put aways safe, but it was the wrong colour.  I feel sure, deep down, I had another navy one somewhere.  If I have, I am sure it will turn up one day when I least expect it.

By this time, I was expecting the rest of the disruption, so I just spent the last few minutes I had, sewing in the ends on the bits I had knitted and crocheted the night before.
 One crocheted face cloth.
 As I wasn't sure how much yarn was left,  I crocheted some more coasters until there was only a tiny bit of yarn left.
Next came the pink ball of cotton, and a knitted face cloth. 

I seem to have caught the bug for these.  In the evenings, mindless knitting and crochet is so relaxing, and as I bought a job lot of cotton, I am going to see how many of these I can get.

This morning saw the end of British Summer Time, so the clocks went back.  Apparently this  gives us an extra hours sleep.  However, no one ever tells my body, so I'm up bright and early.  Actually, it's not very bright, and a little earlier than normal.  I have a quiet day until the boys come home this afternoon, so there is a lot of time to fill.  I think I had better get all the chores done out of the way so the fun can begin.

Enjoy your time today! Our time changes next weekend and I'm really not looking forward to it! It takes us weeks to get our bodies back on the new time! LOL

Hope the disruption is soon over. More lovely finishes... you are so productive, it puts me to shame. I should've come by your blog when my mojo was missing.. I feel all enthused & wanting to create now. Thoroughly enjoyed my catch up. :0)

Ooh. Our clocks turn back next week. The only thing good about that is one extra hour to the weekend. How shall I spend that?

You've been knitting up a storm there!

Nice basket and the cotton seems to be knitting up well. Glad it's relaxing. We all need some of that.
How's the roof?
