New Things x 2

As soon as I saw this I knew I had to make it, there was no putting it on the to do list either, I even bought yarn for it.....



Aren't those colours gorgeous it gave me a huge amount of pleasure opening the door to the postman and  having him hand me the parcel and then opening it to reveal all this yarny goodness, well it has been a long time I can't remember how long it is since I bought any new yarn.

I'm talking about the Arizona CAL of course is anyone else following it?

Here's my progress so far..















That's part one complete just in time to start part two which came out yesterday.

The second new thing is something extra special my first grandchild Mikey was born on the 8th March.😊

Have a great weekend.
