A Weekend in Pictures

Weekends are for sitting by the fire, reading books, drinking coffee and indulgence. At least that’s the plan. It rarely happens in this house! I’ve been indulging in a lazy weekend, relishing time alone with just box sets and chick lit for company.

boots-and-books

I cleaned my boots – oh that colour! These boots make me smile every time I wear them. . It’s just a bonus that my scarf is all matchy matchy! Note to self, if you decide to walk over the fields to buy the weekend papers, don’t wear suede boots!

coffee-fireside

I made a pot of coffee and sat by the fire. I read trashy chick lit on my  Kindle and I watched  Greys Anatomy (again).

fire-and-wine

I did some weeding, and when it got dark I came inside. I opened a bottle of wine and sat by the fire. I read the  papers and I watched Greys Anatomy (again).

rice-pud

I ate left overs for breakfast. I did as I pleased. I gave myself permission to step off the work / design / housework treadmill. I had the best weekend. If this is slow living I am definitely happy in the slow lane. I hope your weekend was happy too.

Here’s to Monday x

#crochet #crochetgirlgang #crochetconcupiscence #crochetaddict #crochetgifts #freepattern #bakingandmaking Finally some crochet! Five years ago I designed these little bags for the  wool shop where I worked I  still make them for wrapping presents - so much nicer (& more sustainable) than paper or plastic.  Link in my profile for details & free pattern.

I've hung this on my kitchen wall, rather pleased with this simple print of 3 plants from my garden (the middle one is from the tiny christmas tree we were given in December at Delamere Forest)

#crochetdesigner #crochet #amigurumi #booklover #bookreview Eco print "before" shot. Now bundled and simmering. So much colour in the garden this week, had to capture a memory. #springday
#ecoprint #ecodye #naturaldye #plantdye #inspiredbynature #mygardenrightnow #nettles #bakingandmaking #bundledyeing #theartofslowliving #surfacepattern Scrappy cyanotype. Still experimenting, still learning, still loving this process. Even tiny scraps of fabric aren't being wasted - perfect for testing out ideas...
