Well it’s nearly Sunday again and Sunday is gardening day here in the cottage. Today we had some much welcomed rain. In fact we had today half the total rainfall for the whole of September. Amazing!
The picture above shows the fifth dog blanket I am making for Battersea Dogs’ Home. This one is going to be in different shades of blue and is made in an ever popular blanket stitch. The home likes this because the dogs can’t get their paws caught up in it.
My new quilt is finished and now on my bed, ready for the cold nights ahead, which we have been promised!
Lucky me! Larry is making me a tabard on his weaving loom. Here is the pattern from the weaving book…
and here it is in the making…
I can’t wait to see how it comes out.
On my spinning wheel is some of the white Polworth fleece and I’m already making a jerkin with some of it, see below. Millie likes it because it is so warm so she is usually to be found curled up underneath while I’m knitting.
So another busy week and tomorrow we’ll be in the garden.
ps there is a little good news about my son. He has found someone to share a flat with, albeit on the sofa! and he is training for a job in customer service with a well known bank. I have hope !
