Despite the fact that is has been persisting down for the best part of a week now, I’ve been enjoying the first part of my week off work for the past couple of days (after I did a 12 hour shift on Sunday!).  On Monday I took a couple of lenses in to be assessed for their longevity after an incident a few months ago where both rolled onto the floor causing them to not function very well since, and then ended up walking nearly 4 1/2 miles in the pouring rain looking for lemongrass.  Don’t even ask.  Along the way though I took a nice wee detour into GOMA and looked round all their exhibits, a few of which had some great quilty inspiration (and obviously dried out a little!), and I also ran into an old friend in the street, so we’re going out for dinner next Tuesday.  Yesterday I took my gran to see an old friend who’s just moved into a nursing home, and I cleaned quite a bit.  An odd way to spend a holiday, but needs must sometimes ;o)

Anyway, tomorrow I’m heading north with a bunch of projects to sew on my new Featherweight, my camera and some wet weather gear, a few tubs of homemade soup and the makings for hot chocolate, and some vodka, that should be all I need, right?!  I hope you’ve all had a great week!

Finishes This Week:

I finally finished my Schnitzel & Boo mini, which went out the door with the tote I made for the Poppies & Polka Dots blog and a few other wee extras, I hope my partner likes it!

I also go my gran’s birthday pressie finished, but since she’s been known to pop up on here, I’ll keep that hidden until her birthday next week!

In Progress This Week:

I’ve been writing up patterns, but no pretty pictures, sorry!

I’ve also been working on a project for a friend that’s under wraps for now, but has certainly been exercising all my maths skills…

To Be Worked On This Week:

Playing with the new Featherweight and maybe getting a few blocks of a new project done
Having fun in Royal Deeside
Going out for dinner with friends

Hope you all have a great week!  Linking up with Lee and the gang:
