Yarn Along - My bag is done!

Good Afternoon,

So awhile ago I started a granny square bag for the holidays in the summer, and here it is...

I am really pleased with it, I made it up a couple of rounds more than the pattern, and changed the colours to my liking. I used all Sytlecraft DK in - Clematis, Cloud Blue, Spring Green, Lemon and Aster

I managed to line with some pretty floral fabric I had in my stash from PJ bottom making earlier this month,

Next up I think I am going to try to make socks again using circular needles...

I have posted this as part of Yarn Along.
thanks for stopping by

Tuesday Thoughts!

Good Afternoon,

Well it was nice to have the extra day off this weekend, the weather was a mixed bag really.. but we made the most of it.

Saturday, as I said in earlier post went out for lunch and then to the farm/woods, which was nice.

Sunday dawned a wet day all round, so perfect for sewing! I did the traditional Sunday Roast Beef and me and pickle made a Lemon Victoria Sandwich

Pickle forgot to put the buttercream in the middle with the Lemon Curd, hence why it's alittle on the thin side!

I managed to finally finished pickles summer top,  and I have to say am very pleased with outcome..

I also got the time to complete my beach bag, It's a granny square crochet on both sides, with a double crochet handle using Stylecraft DK. I just love the bright colours they do, and I have lined it with pretty fabric.

Can't think of a better way of spending a Sunday..sewing, baking and spending time with my family.

Monday was a much better weather day, managed to get outside and mow the lawns front and back, I really enjoyed lawn mowing, and we got some paint to update the chairs, we went for something different Fushia Pink!
Here are 2 done, the other 2 to go...
The table used to be our Dining table, the garden is starting to take form, here is one of the hanging baskets..

I hope you all had a nice weekend, Thanks for stopping by.
