Today was bright and sunny but the DBEM has caught my cold so didn't get out to church. We did go for a drive to the seaside though and enjoyed the view over the mudflats:)
After completing one piece of my knitting I have returned to Arabian Nights and made a small amount of progress.
But I am suffering from withdrawal symptoms from my favourite counted work so made the decision to have another project in tandem and have started a new collection of Marken Mice.
Tomorrow is another public holiday here and I have only two items on my list of chores so will have time for another long walk as the weather lady promised it would be fine! Hope she's correct:)
Our Lenten Lilies have bloomed prolifically at just the right time. For a rather plain flower they make quite a display. We are entering the season of leaves and today I swept up a large pile as well as three buckets of chestnuts from the neighbours tree. I'm going to search for a recipe to make the wonderful chestnut puree I used to eat in Japan as the DBEM would enjoy that I think.
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
