Mr 'Cock-up' Comes to Call! ..... Oh, am I allowed to say that!

Glad to say that it's sunny again today, after a 
very miserable week here, weatherwise.
Thought I'd post a few photos to cheer myself 
and hopefully you, up!


Flowers from the garden, in my workroom.



Wildflowers around my neighbour's pond.


Two views, I snapped, while out walking.
The grasses blowing in the wind, were magical!


Can you spot Daisy, hiding !

Anyway, can't put it off any longer, have to
confess, that all did not go well in the workroom this week.
I was all set to post about finishing my crochet bunting.
Was congratulating myself and had taken 
the photos and everything.


 It was neatened, with all the ends sewn in.
 Ready for the next stage


When I spotted, THIS, on the floor!!


You can imagine my dismay!
The design, I have in mind, requires 11 triangles.
10 will DEFINITELY, not be enough.
What to do!
Nothing for it, I had to set to and fix it.
I undid one end of the long chain, after much fiddling, 
to try and find the ends. Attached the errant triangle,
with a row of double chain and finished the edging
to look like the rest. The trickiest bit was making
the chain at the end look good, as it was now 26 sts too short.


Pleased with the result. What do you think!
I'm ready to have fun with the design now.
I can smile at it now but so nearly 
 lost my sense of humour.
Still, to quote Kipling
"If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same; " 
The words seem appropriate, for this D Day celebratory morning.
Hope you have lots of smiles this weekend!
