|Mel hard at work|
|Rachael and Mel ignoring me and the camera.|
|Gwyneth knitting her beautiful socks.|
- Some baking - this ginger, almond and oat slice
- Reading -The Embroidered Garden by Kazuko Aoki. This pretty book almost makes me want to take up embroidery
- Another sewing day - where I was surprised with an early birthday club gift from Gwyneth. Remember this wool that I bought, to make a shawl, which I started, and repeatedly undid. When I discovered that Gwyneth was a knitter, I gave it to her to use. I figured that there was no point having it sit in a bag in my cupboard. She surprised me with a beautiful shawl made out of it. The photos just don't do it justice.
- Some sewing hand work was done, Mel was cutting out circles for her modern wedge blocks, I was making my Dresden blades. Rachael was cutting fabric for another civil war quilt, and Gwyneth was knitting another pair of beautiful socks.
One more week of holidays to go here - have a great week what ever you may be doing.
