Linking up with Nat from Threads and Bobbins for this week’s Sunday Sevens.
1. A good start to the week with happy mail from Little French Meadow in the form of a skein of hand dyed merino sock yarn in a glorious shade of lavender.
2. A very good friend of ours took us out for lunch on Tuesday.
3. This was just my starter!
4. Hubby took a pic of the gent’s loo. Why isn’t there a Chippendale offering hand towels in the Ladies’?
5. Just as well this arrived that morning – a treadmill. It’s the only piece of equipment we used to enjoy at the gym so, not counting the initial purchase price, saves us £100 per month on gym fees!
6. Really impressed with “15 Minute Meals” cookbook by Jamie Oliver. This was a photo from the book that tempted me……..
7. …..and this is how it turned out. Absolutely delicious!
8. A new student’s make from her very first sewing lesson.
9. We had lunch in a pub in Bruton after a mid week walk, and the landlord told us about a new café that had just opened a short walk away through the woods.
10. That’s it, at the far left of the picture at the end of the farmyard.
11. We had coffee and cake – everything on the cake menu was gluten free so it would have been rude not to:)
12. A lovely wood burner was a welcome sight after a second chilly walk.
13. Tess is really missing Fifi and has been off her food since we lost her. She used to cuddle up to Fifi as close as she could.
14. Bad weather has meant lots of crafting time – I finished this ‘Saxifrage’ sock by Rachel Coopey, although I still have to make the other one.
15. I promised No.3 Son that I would knit his other sock first though, so I cast on immediately.
16. Granny square count is up to fourteen now, so I’m making good progress on the wedding blanket.
17. A sprinkling of White Stuff although sadly not snow, but hailstones.
We’ve just got in after a long walk in torrential rain and I’m looking forward to an evening alternating between sock knitting and granny square crocheting. Until next week……adieu!
