It's a cold, rainy bank holiday weekend. Well it was ok yesterday but today (Sunday) it is pouring down. I thought I'd blog today before the house awakens fully. I love Sunday mornings because I still get up early but I have a couple of hours complete peace and quiet to stitch. This morning I have been adding more rows to a jumper for Max.
Ring-a-Rosie and she suggested smaller needles (although I do knit quite tight anyway). This rendition is on 2.5mm because I didn't have any smaller. they look better so far.
We had the Baby Shower last Saturday in the conservatory of a local pub.
Of course I have done the usual and given away a quilt without doing final photos. So here is a quick look at the detail and I'll get Steph to photo it in situ.
On my hoop at the moment is the start of a nine block Durham Quilt for my Thursday night class. Hilary showed me a nifty way to sew pre-quilted blocks together. It's a technique I don't normally use but it works well this way. The front is a soft grey green and the back is a lovely gentle floral.
The Thursday night class is just about full now. I'm going to have to be super organised as one of my team at work is going to be off for an extended period and we are going to have to take on extra tasks to cover. She does a a fantastic job on some very confidential matters and is one of those people who works quietly away without complaint.
Baking - well I have been baking away - I think a chocolate sandwich (family favourite) will be on the cards today. Again I'm bad at taking pictures - partly because the kitchen looks like a disaster scene when I'm done on a Thursday night. Here is a raspberry and white chocolate cupcake from a couple of weeks ago.
So for the rest of today I'm going to be doing some work I have brought home - fuelled by my little pot of sweeties and plenty of coffee.
Wishing you a good bank holiday!
