This week was a week of getting on.
I spent, pretty much, a whole day sewing in the ends on the granny square blanket - it's still only half done and I have more of the border to crochet. Very slow and boring but kind of satisfying - although I was chatting, drinking copious cups of tea and coffee so wasn't exactly a WHOLE day and of course feeding 4 hungry children as well as ourselves.
I seem to have lost our beach blanket and seeing as we are heeding to Southwold tomorrow I decided to bind an old wool blanket with some funky fabric, sitting watching an old technicolour film, Marjorie Morningstar. F+T played police and robbers with their lego and the rain poured and poured outside. A lovely way to spend a pretty dark, wet day.
And look what is finally done! M came home to me tap, tapping the pins along the edge of the piano stool, much to the annoyance of F+T who were watching tv at the time.
We go away tomorrow for a week in Southwold, meeting up with some friends. I really hope the weather picks up and all this rain stops. I will also try to relax into this week and not let the stresses take over again.
I have packed my allotment quilt to start the task of quilting it - I have to so I can give Nancy her pins back!
Also some crochet, going to try the pattern out for the medallion throw, which I think just might be what will cover the footstool.
Where has the summer gone? Seven weeks have gone very quickly.
