Tuesday Sevens – 13th November

Late again this week with Sunday Sevens – started by Nathalie at Threads and Bobbins – sharing seven (or so) pictures of  the week beyond the blog.

Last Sunday was the second day of Stitch Fest

Having spent Monday recovering, Tuesday and Wednesday were spent having a good and proper clean up. We even hired the rug doctor…

On Thursday LH returned to restoring the drive with a delivery of gravel. Unfortunately he underestimated how much he needed and we still need more…

While LH worked outside, I began making more stitch markers – having totally sold out at the weekend…

…I also finally photographed what remained of the knitting needle and crochet hook bags to put them on the website

I also began making more kits…

On Saturday we headed up country and met my brother and his partner for Lunch in the beautiful Star pub at Rusper.

We then headed off to spend the weekend with friends…

Although we did sneak off to have brunch on Sunday morning/lunchtime with Lovely Littlest and her boyfriend.

When we returned to my friend, her lovely mum had popped in to see us and brought me some gorgeous flowers.

After her mum had gone, I finally – after years of saying we’d find time/space to do it –  taught my friend to knit…

Hope you had a great weekend!

 

 

Sunday Sevens – 29th October

Joining in again this week with Sunday Sevens – started by Nathalie at Threads and Bobbins – sharing seven (or so) pictures of  the week beyond the blog.

Last Sunday we went of a walk along the River Okement.  It’s several years since we’ve been up there and we’d forgotten what a scramble it can be in places.

On Monday the tree surgeon removed a dangerous bow from one of our trees, so LH spent a happy afternoon with his chainsaw dismantling it…

Meantime prepared for Stitch Fest. There was sewing…

…and I got to play with my new wool winder…

But it wasn’t all hard work. On Wednesday we did the pub quiz with our lovely next door neighbours and won for the fist time in months!

And on Friday I visited The Peter Tavy Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers annual exhibition.  Here’s a few of my favourite exhibits…

A gradient knitted bag…

This shawl was cobweb fine. A real work of art, but I’d be terrified of wearing in and ruining it…

Optical illusion weaving. Not sure if you’ll be able to see the two different ways the blue one appears close to and further away, but fingers crossed…

And finally, I couldn’t resist taking a pic of this cutie…

Hope you’ve had a great week!

Sunday Sevens – 21st October

Joining in again this week with Sunday Sevens – started by Nathalie at Threads and Bobbins – sharing seven (or so) pictures of  the week beyond the blog.

Our week started with Lovely Husband convincing me that we had time to go for a cycle ride to have a naughty breakfast at Okehampton Station before our friends came for Sunday Lunch. It was and eighteen mile round trip and I didn’t go for the full English, so I think all in all calories in balanced calories out… Continue reading “Sunday Sevens – 21st October”

It’s been a very much a stay at home week this week, with a few jaunts out locally. I went up to Bellever Forest with a friend and walked through the stone circles…
