An embroidery, sewing and unsettled week

Hello again

Weather report

Looks a much better morning after a very varied week of rain, clouds and some sunshine.

My week since last Thursday

Very mixed projects this week I could not settle to just one thing.

Thursday

Cleared up workroom to make more user friendly eg. I have actually used the desk this week.

and I had a class in the afternoon.

Friday

All day workshop, I worked on a few more knitted squares and sewed some squares together.

Then put it all away again. :-)

Saturday

We did a bit of gardening and some washing. I decided to have a break from knitting and started a new crochet project.

Sunday

Change the bedding and did more washing. Phil was out doing photography and I got out the sewing machine to make some more bags and cable tidies.

We went out out for a bit of shopping and then I had a dentists appointment for a filling I had broken a tooth again. I started an embroidery kit Louise bought me for my birthday. oh and baked a cake and some biscuits.

Tuesday

It was a nice morning so we went out for a ride to Rievaulx Terrace near Northallerton, we had a walk along the terrace and saw some butterflies and a tiny frog….

Wednesday

A quiet morning we did a little bit of gardening, class on the evening. I did a bit more machine sewing and finished the embroidery kit today, I have loved doing it, I feel like I am not in a zone to get on with anything in particular a the moment and can’t settle on any of the ongoing projects I have.

Also worked on finishing some of the sewing on the machine.

I pulled out the crochet I started earlier in the week and have started to work it up again.

I picked some of the flowers that were battered by the rain, this was Phil’s photo of them
