As I need to get cracking on the "needles without eyes" project, I made a determined effort to complete Too Reticule this week.
There sure was an enormous amount of work for something so small but I am very pleased with this and delighted to have learned a new construction type.
Already I have dreams of a Wessex Stitchery reticule???? or maybe one in Pulled Thread or Hardanger????
Today the HD3QEM and I went to Hamilton to go shopping. Both of us have favourite dress shops in that city (an hours drive south of here) and we generally make a visit twice a year to ensure we have respectable clothing to wear. Well today the HD3QEM excelled herself and got 3 different outfits ( enthusiastically encouraged by me, I must say) and I got myself one outfit. Now all we need is for the temperatures to rise a little more and we will make the transition from merino to linen!
During the week we have been enjoying an audiobook and I highly recommend this one
I'm off now for my usual Saturday evening TV marathon: tonight is Masterchef Australia Finale, Antiques Roadshow, Midsomer Murders and the machine will record Hotel Inspector for a later date.
have a great evening everyone.
