What a week! I don't know why the first week of the Autumn Term always comes as a shock to the system but this was no exception - I'm so glad it was only four days long. But now I have had a quiet weekend to recharge the batteries. A bit of stitching, a bit of pattern writing, some crochet, not much housework and the Italian Grand Prix. Will has tidied the sun lounge (or should I say car workshop?) and I am at peace.
First an update on Flossie:
We had a lovely sunset the other night but sadly it poured the next day. This was the view to the west-
and this to the east - a lovely rainbow - my phone doesn't pick the colours out well but it was beautiful and ephemeral.
Yesterday I had a strange but very peaceful day. I was receptionist at the clinic for John in the morning and then, because he had my car and was off to a rugby match to physio for them, instead of driving him there and going back home, I decided to stay in the clinic and do a bit of pattern writing. I set BBC iPlayer away and caught up on the Bake-Off and had a very pleasant afternoon!
This morning I had a quick practice crochet before I set off for a lightning visit to the supermarket (the yarn is beckoning to me and I'm desperately holding off until my patchwork projects are further forward).
Maybelle Square from Rose Valley. I would love to make this from linen - maybe a throw for my bed or a cloth for the chest of drawers. Quince and Co make a lovely yarn but I couldn't afford to make a full throw from this (I can but dream).
Watching the Grand Prix this afternoon I finished the stitcheries for my new Christmas Wallhanging. I just need to layer it up now and finish writing the instructions.
I got a lovely book this week - I can't remember where I saw it but it is a second hand book published in the '70s.
So, a few little chores and I will be ready for the week ahead - bring it on!
