Days Two,Three and Home...

Friday  DD and I went went to a special  Military Antique Shop  to take hubby's medals to be re-done... and afterwards enjoyed a lovely coffee morning tea/lunch at a little cafe tucked away next door....
Then onto some clothes stores and fabric/wool place.. I come home empty handed but DD bought some wool. In the afternoon I had a nice visit with my sister..

Saturday we got up early as my GS had a fencing competition...


I really enjoyed watching and learning how they fence and score... Lucky I knew that it was my GS facing us .......

After spending  a very busy enjoyable few days at my DDs  it was time to drive home on Sunday, then unpack and wind down by doing some more knitting....


Did need to undo it several times while away before I got the cable pattern right... Got it now.... Maybe it will be a Beanie yet.......

Yesterday there was a parcel in the post for me..... This book I had ordered... Sew many great quilts


would love to make one of them but have to stay strong and get some of my UFOs done first.....

Must away now and go into town for food shopping......,

Happy Stitching,

Hugs  Maria  😊

  1. Sounds like a good weekend. Nothing like a pair of knitting needles to slow down the pace even though unpicking was the order of the day.....very frustrating. Will you weaken sooner rather than later and start a new quilt from the book????

  6. You packed a lot into one weekend. The fencing sounds fascinating. I’d have no clue about the rules and scoring, but it would be fun to watch. Your knitting looks perfect to me. Our errors keep us humble! Good for you for stitching with those UFOs, but that book looks very tempting.

  10. What a lovely outting, spent with family! I didn't know you were a knitter. That's one skill I never acquired. Sometimes I think about it, but the last thing I need is a new hobby!!

  13. You had a great time away Maria - seems that you squeezed in lots!! Ahh so it's going to be a beanie - it's grown since FNSI, in spite of the undoing! I wonder how well your willpower will last with the book....it looks interesting :-)
