Last weekend was a weekend of 'firsts' for 2008 - first car boot, first time I sat behind my sewing machine and made something, first time in the garden and first time I have ever driven in a snow storm!
Right, let's start at the beginning and that was Saturday morning's car boot. Oh, it was so wonderful. I've missed it so much...too much.
I also found a chimney pot which is awaiting a plant on our patio. I didn't find alot but I love what I did find. And it looks like I'll have all the answers to the questions of the universe to as I found God's answer book!
On Sunday, I was up very early to do my most favourite of car boot sales. The neighbours that usually take me couldn't go so I decided I would go myself. Bad move. I ended up taking a wrong turn and it suddenly started to snow heavily. Yes snow! I found myself trying to drive with huge flakes hurtling at the windscreen it got a bit icy and the car even skidded at one point. I have never driven in snow and I didn't like it. So, after driving for over an hour I headed back home, very disappointed, where there was bright sun. Crazy British weather.
I spent the afternoon at my sewing machine. I have been suffering with a bad case of sewing-block but I ended up making..
..a new pair of kitchen curtains (not working curtains)
..a 'bed pouch' for my ever growing pile of books and magazines by my bed..
..and 2 tablecloths made from some Cath and Green Gate fabric and I also sewed 2 pairs of single sheets (lilac ones)together to make them fit our king size bed. It felt good to be at my machine again.
And today (Monday) I spent some time in the garden tidying up before my annual trip to Hill House Nursery hopefully sometime this week.
And tomorrow? I finally have my crochet-date with lovely Lisa, so it will be a 'chatting over a pot of tea, maybe in front of the fire, crochet' afternoon...and I can't wait.
