We have had the most beautiful weather this weekend, unfortunately I am miserable with hay fever, so didn't really feel like being outside and enjoying it. Here is some of what kept me occupied this weekend:
- Baking - a peach and poppy seed cake, I omitted the lemon and thyme syrup is was supposed to have. It was but would be delicious with the syrup and whipped cream as a dessert.
- Lots of lovely books from the library. I have had re-issued the Vita book, so I can finish it finally. Some lovely crafty books for inspiration. I am especially loving the Mr Finch book. I have seen and pinned some of his creations on pinterest before, and love the moths made of old embroidered linens. Very inspiring.
- Homemade muesli - an afternoon toasting oats, bran, coconut and wheatgerm, mixed up with sunflower and pumpkin seeds, and assorted dried fruits. Looking forward to breakfast tomorrow,
- Sewing and quilting on the two knights pillow - the borders have been added, and the quilting has been done. After some google research, I decided upon using Gutermann sulky invisible thread. Very fine needles 70/6 and some tension changes, meant that on the whole it was a pretty trouble free experience. I think the hardest part was trying to thread the sewing machine needle, fine clear thread, small needle eyes and being shortsighted are not a good combination. The backing has been made, and I just have to attach the binding. That will be next weekends hand sewing at my sewing day with Rachel and Deb.
Wishing you all a fabulous week ahead.
