Linking up with Natalie at Threads & Bobbins for another edition of Sunday Sevens.
1. I went to a baby sprinkle, so called because they had a shower for their first baby and this was more low key.
2. I finished the blanket I had made with just twenty minutes to spare! Yes, it’s a little boy this time.
This was the blanket I made for his big sister two years ago.
3. Tess is enjoying lots of cuddles with us. This is our bed and we can’t even get in it!
4. We popped down to Brighton for the day to see our granddaughter, planning to have a picnic. The weather was foul, so we improvised and made a den under the dining table and ate our picnic there instead.
5. Mum, Sis and I went to a vintage textiles fair at Ilminster Arts Centre and stopped on the way for tea and cake in a café on a converted double decker bus. Caught Sis mid-blink:)
6. Also at the Arts Centre is a permanent crafts section. Love these animal puppets made from branches and sheepskin and might have a go at making something in the same vein.
7. As it’s the Easter holidays, The Boys came with me to Knit ‘n’ Natter and went down a storm with all the ladies who were hugely impressed that boys could knit and crochet. No 3 Son wore a T-shirt he’d made for good measure and to impress them even more!
8. Craft wise, I made a quilt for the school fair.
9. These socks were finished and blocked.
10. 25 more pots of jam were made, this time all for the school fair.
11. I’m making a wardrobe full of clothes to dress a doll, also for the school fair.
12. White T-shirt, tweed skirt and sheepskin coat so far.
13. I’ve also started knitting an outfit for her.
14. After seeing it on Lynne’s blog, I bought this book on Amazon. If I can find time to actually make anything from it is another matter entirely.
15. And then it was Easter. Both Air b’n’b bedrooms were let from Good Friday through to Easter Monday, as well as having two extra family members stay for the weekend, so much of it was spent cooking and entertaining. Good job that’s what we do best!
