We had a lovely relaxed and quite one, late starts, plenty of tea and cake and lots of gardening for DH and crafting time for me.
My sewing machine was out and finishing off recent stitched projects ...
A little ornament for LHN Pears
and a pinkeep for LHN Peace
The meet up exchange was also finished but I can't share that with you till opening day next Monday 31st August. It's gone off in the post today, so fingers crossed Royal Mail deliver it safely.
Knitting needles were out and a new knitting start sitting in the garden soaking up some summer sunshine. Crazy zauberball wool in the colourway 1564 for a pair of Christmas gift socks.
A nice book got some attention and whiled away some time too.
Don't you just love weekends where you can do absolutely nothing and yet accomplish quite a bit for yourself.
Today I turned the page on my perpetual desk calendar that I had for my birthday from DH. 365 Happy Days ~ A Happy Thought for Every Day. It's by Helen Exley.
Today's page was a quote from William Shakespeare. They do make me smile each day.
Frame your mind to mirth and merriment,
which bars a thousand harms and lengthens life
A stitching new start and a little finish last week...
A finish was handed over on Friday as we had a birthday at the knitting group. I made a covered tape measure for the birthday girl. Happy Birthday Patricia.
New start for the LHN/CCN/Sampler Girl Wednesday evening SAL. This time I chose Happy Skater from the 2010 JCS Ornament Edition.
A gift arrived in the post for me. Vicki over at 2 Bags Full had a giveaway for one of 7 wonderful journals. She asked what you would write in it if you won one. 118 people commented on that post and I was so very lucky to have one arrive through my letterbox. Thank you so much Vicki, its is so beautiful.
the inside pages are so lovely....
Monday morning, the start of the last week of August, I wonder what this week will bring for us all?
School uniforms and supplies are being purchased as the new school year begins soon. My granddaughter will be starting school full time so a first for her. She is so excited and has really missed her nursery school friends over the long holiday. Many children will be moving up to new schools and facing new challenges.
Wishing you a week full of happy times and I hope you all enjoy the extra day off work for the final bank holiday weekend here in the UK next Monday. Will it be a sunny one?
My thoughts over the weekend have been with all those who have been affected by the crash of the Hawker Hunter jet at the Shoreham Air Show this weekend. Be they rescue workers who have to deal with the aftermath or families who have lost loved ones. Such a tragedy for everyone at what should have been a fun family day out.
Love and blessings to you all.
**Edited ........ Dani has asked if the covered tape measures are hard to do, there's a tutorial I did for them here.
