In the kitchen this morning I try and have a sneaky look at my blanket to see how the border is coming on...
...within minutes I'm discovered. The plane, teddy and Thomas cushion are flung down as he spots the balls of wool. Noooooooo! All is quickly bundled up again out the way, it'll need to wait till after bed time, as usual.
I did manage to get one little photo of the border so far. I think the row of dark turquoise is too wide, I should perhaps have done half trebles instead of trebles. I've gone quite far round with it, can I bear ripping it out? Hmmm, at the moment I think not.
It was a lovely day today and also a school holiday. We went for a walk in the woods. After a bit of clambering up some steep slopes we are rewarded with lovely little peeks of the village through the trees. I'll need to come back and see how much more is visible once the leaves have all turned and blown away.
Hansel and Gretel.
Back home via the lane lined with begonias, always colourful.
Autumn treasure gathered on our walk.
Breadmaker bread. I'd forgotten I'd loaded it up before going out so it was a nice surprise to smell it when opening the door. It makes quite a dense loaf which is nice once in a while but I would tire of it if we ate it all the time, so it's one of those gadgets left to linger in a cupboard.
A took a shine to one of the projects in the Paper Fun book I'd bought in the charity shop yesterday so while N was having his afternoon nap we made a paper house each.
Next she wants to do more houses then the church then some people then the train then the landscaping (papier mache) then the zoo... Perhaps it's just as well she'll be back at school on Tues. However, at least I have completed a project from one of my craft books, more than I can say for many of the others in my collection.
Tea -beef stew and dumplings and brussel sprouts...
...then crumble with rhubarb, strawberries, brambles and bluberries. It was nice with toffee icecream.
