It has been quite a mixed week with some lovely moments and some less lovely (currently on day 19 of no heating or hot water)! Still, at least we do not have extremes of weather like snow or floods to go with it.
I love this picture of my sister and my niece. I met them for tea and cake (and cuddles)! My niece is modelling some of her growing knitwear collection. Her hat is part of a 1950's pram suit knitted by my mum, I knitted her cardigan from a 1950's pattern.
These are some of the results of Crafty Tuesday, a lovely craft night with friends. We were making cards and knitting; having fun cutting and sticking and chatting.
Enjoying the roaring of the river whilst on a walk with my dog.
Starting a new knitting project, a 1950's cabled hood. I do like knitting a cable, this looks so cosy.
Surrounded by beautiful, glowing colours in my friend's haberdashery.
One of a series of murals telling the story of wool by Henry Marvell Carr. They start at the shearing of a sheep, through processes such as spinning, dying, weaving and finishing. They are on display in Salts Mill, Saltaire and were commissioned by them in the 1950s. I met my friend and her daughter there.
All the ingredients for hosting the first session of a patchwork group. A group of friends, sharing know how, tea, cake, fabric and sewing equipment. Lots and lots of inspiration, heads buzzing with ideas, projects being planned.
