I've had quite a busy weekend which was kicked of with the birthday of my eldest DD who turned 7 on Friday (where's the time when she was a little baby that fitted in the palm of my hand?). Here's something she made last Wednesday - I think she inherited my creative genes ;-).
On Saturday it was shopping and laundry day and on Sunday I didn't really feel like stitching but I decided to start on a crocheted shawl ... in red (I just adore red).
The thread is entirely cotton, available in different colours (saffron, purple, pink, light and dark blue and green and so on). It asks for a crochet size 3 but I'm doing it with 3 1/2.
Frankly ... it's not really a pleasant thread to crochet with because I often get caught/tangled with my hook in the thread that consists of different smaller strands.

We "closed" our weekend this night (Sunday to Monday) with a fire nearby (50 metres of where we live) in one of the 30 garages that belongs to an appartment block where we used to live. It's really impressive to see it that nearby and it has only increased the respect that I feel for all the firemen.
On a side note: no one was harmed, it was only material damage.
