Time to weave in the ends ready for the latest round.

And why not enjoy a quiet cup of coffee while doing so?

The squares alway look neat once the ends disappear. (This May look odd but that’s my photo not the square).

One cup of black coffee….

….. may LOOK like any other cup of black coffee ……. but trust me! They don’t all TASTE the same!Today’s coffee is Mzuzu from Malawi. Delicious. Perfect for a quiet few minutes with my crochet!

Just what would hubby like to prepare for himself this weekend? I won’t need anything as I’m away with daughter and granddaughter! Just the three of us for a few laughs and giggles.

While I continue to think about it I’ll just drink my new to me coffee!
