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:
You could also pack some Bailys to mix in with the hit chocolate. Lovely in a flask on a blustery walk!
Sounds like a good week despite the weather, have a great time in the north
have a lovely week!!! I'm not sure which should come first on a travelling list, vodka or a featherweight!!! I guess it depends on whether or not you have limes 😉
Love the mini that flew out the door!
Hope you haven't got caught up in Abigail, stay safe.
As long as you enjoyed your week off, that's the main thing!
Sounds like a good plan! Milling down here too and happy to be indoors. I love how your shcnitzel & Boo mini turned out. Just the thing to brighten up the miserable winter weather!
Love the subtle fabric on that bag. The mini is striking, too. I like the name Schnitzel and Boo.
Two gorgeous finishes! Any chance it's stopped raining yet?!
