Last Weekend

The motto for the weekend.

A new project was prepared.

This pile of crumpled hankies turned into

A pile of fabric ready to be sewn together to become a quilt (I think?)

In the afternoon, the bad weather set in. We were forecast 5-10cms of snow. Now in some parts of the world, 5-10cms is nothing, but the UK doesnt cope well with snow for some reason. The afternoon became very dark & cold, therefore the fairy lights & candles were put into use to brighten the room for us :-)

The big box of Lego was pulled out.

All the 'kids' were engrossed.

Dinosaurs & treehouses were created.

The snow came. This photo was taken at about 10pm on Saturday.

We woke up to this on Sunday morning. We wrapped up & headed out to go sledging. It was absolutely freezing, so after a few hours, we retreated home for hot chocolate.

& I spent some time crocheting. This blanket has created some mixed feelings, I loved it to begin with, then after the first row was joined, I hated it. My joins were not as clean as in the tutorial. But I perservered. As I started joing the next row, I began to fall in love all over again.

That was last weekend.



  1. Ooooh, that caught my eye in CrossStitcher as well, but I have too many things on the go. So it's on my to do (sometime in the future) list!! Hope it goes well and look forward to seeing it progress.
    My family is Lego mad, the boys got Creationary for Christmas and that has been a hit of all ages.
    Love the blanket coming together.

  2. Oooooh it all looks lovely, it's just so difficult to find the time sometimes! We didn't get any snow just some slush and ice which was a bit disappointing :(. I'm looking forward to seeing your quilt all finished x

  3. The snow looks pretty.. we had a complete bust on our 1 "snow event" here in Oregon last month. Your blankie will be gorgeous! My DIL got a lego VW bus kit.. she's had fun putting it together. It's pretty amazing! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
