It’s been a nice week. The sun has shone and late Summer is here. On Monday Mr E went to a car boot sale, and whilst he trawled the stalls for cheap bargains (none ), I had a walk round the village. Then we went onto a plant fair at Newburgh Priory
Turns out I had a lot of plants that were on sale already, so I was not tempted to buy. We had coffee and cake , homemade lemon cake, super delicious, and then a walk round the gardens.
There were some quite lovely views across the fields.
Yesterday we went to the moors for a heather hunt. Too late in the season as the heather was well past its prime. But we were rewarded with a steam train at Grosmont on our way home.
Knitting has gone well this week. I have two finishes. A cardigan for Little Miss F, which I am sure is too small.
I think she will like the buttons.
And Morgana, who is turning out to be a fairy with attitude. I knew it.
She thinks she should feature in every post I do from now till the day she goes to live with Little Miss F.
She quite got the hump when she saw she didn’t make it onto the post about books, after all she said she started life in a book. She is trouble.
I have finished the 7th tile on my crochet blanket. If I can I will crochet tile 8 next week and will have the second row completed to show you.
The jumper for Master T is growing quickly. Not sure he is going to like the colours or the style, but I think a little sister might.
Front done and back nearly done. The colours are even brighter than in this picture.
The weekend looks promising for us with a traction engine rally. I do love traction engines.
Oh and I am off to the Quilt Show in Harrogate shortly. Just to look you understand. Absolutely no shopping. No , none, really, none, nothing, no not even thread, zilch.
So do you have any plans for the weekend? I so look forward to reading all the comments. I shall be back this afternoon, completely empty handed.
Have a great weekend,
