Olympic Bunting Ta-Dah


So today has been a weird day. Last night I started feeling a bit feverish and had a very sore throat and head. Last night may possibly have been the worst nights sleep ever and today I have had to have the day off work because I feel so rotten.

Let's hope it doesn't stick around - I've not been the luckiest with regards to health the past couple of months!

A bit of relaxation was certainly required so it was a long morning snoozing in bed and then a curl up on the sofa under a blanket watching a good old girly film which goes by the name of Ghost.

While I was watching the second man of my dreams (Craig being my first) haunt Demi Moore I got well and truly stuck into my Olympic Bunting Project.

I've been working on this for two weeks now and found it a refreshing little project while I've been mastering the art of knitting.

On the train home from London I careful made twenty one tiny little bunting (using the same method as my birthday bunting but only 15 chains across).

I have then spent the week nights going around them with a red yarn in triples, and finally a blue - putting two traipple clusters in each corner section.

Twenty one lovely little British flags. Isn't it just great to live here right now!

I am going to make three lots using seven flags and give one to my lovely Dad who is taking us to the stadium to watch the Hockey. Eeeek - very excited!

I will give the second to my sister for her to wave when we are there and the other one will stay nicely on my welsh dresser throughout the games.
