Monday Madness!

Hello All!

What a week-end! I'm still so frustrated with everything, I could scream!

We woke on Saturday to a loud bang - somewhere on the street corner - an electricity transformer had blown and the entire neighbourhood was without electricity.
My husband must have phoned the municipality about 10 times easy. Each time you get to speak to another rude so and so who knows nothing about it and will report it. Ja, sure!!
Another 30 hours later and a smallish truck came to check out what the fuss was about.... because we didn't know what we were talking about ?????
By then everything was going south - fridges and freezers defrosting, batteries on all tech dead, no internet, no computer..... Like I said, I could scream.

Suffice it to say all I got done was a bit of crochet. I'm learning how, so things went really slow.
This morning I had to jump in the car and go fabric shopping to ..... well..... calm the nerves.

I'm planning a cute Valentine's pillow for my daughter, so I grabbed a few reds, pinks and turquoise colours - as many with hearts as I could find.

 This is my pattern "2 Hearts" that I plan to make.
I've made it before for someone else using reds and grey.
This time I'm planning to use the turquoise instead of the grey.

I've got so many things to do all backed up now, I'm not sure which way is up.
First things first - finish my tutorial for the SYS 2015......
My turn is 4 February - exciting stuff....
