A lovely sunny day on Saturday for our drive over to see my mum. We took her Mothering Sunday gift as she has plans for next weekend with my brother and his family. I took my knitting bag with me and made some progress on this little cardigan for one of DH's friends whose wife gave birth to a lovely little boy named Gabriel last Thursday. There seem to be a lot of newborns about, as we drove by the fields we saw some little lambs frolicking about in the spring sunshine and the usual fisherman by the riverside enjoying the peace and quiet. We had a lovely visit and returned home late in the evening.
The last couple of days i've not felt too good, nothing serious and my chek-up with the Dr today went fine, just keep taking the pills and report in every few weeks as usual. I haven't even switched the computer on and couldn't really settle to anything. I did however, stitch a bit here and there between litle naps on Just Nans Ice Garden for the SAL Tina has organised over at Stitch & Stash. Its now all finished, the fabric and threads are as charted and it really is a pretty design. Time to look and see what design to do next for this ongoing SAL, will it be another band sampler or something different?
The sun is shining today although its quite cold, i've defrosted the birdbath and fed the birds, the washings all done, no other chores today so the rest of the day is mine. I think i'll get out the thread boxes and see if i can choose some nice colours to start Grand Marquoir. After looking at lots of lovely finishes, i've decided that i would like each block to be a different colour so its nice and bright. I might even get a stitch or two added if i dont get carried away with stash fondling. I'm sure you've all lost a morning or afternoon at some time doing just that.
Happy stitching and knitting, thank you for your visit
