The week started with my big sister’s birthday. We’re the same age for 10 days once I have mine. This card has been sent to each other and new messages added since she started her podiatry degree 3 years ago. I think this will last for years. LuckilyI only take responsibly of it for 10 days – my sister looks after it for the rest of the year.
A beautiful day for golf. Don’t let Helens layers make you think it was cold she’s wrapped up all year round! I only played in a t shirt with a coco over the top.
The sun being out really lit up the colours in the trees.
A lovely parcel arrived in the post from Fabric Rehab. I just stumbled across them the week before and there was 40% off, so I just bought a few random things. This little lot (and there’s 2m of the london mug poplin) only cost £16.25 inc postage. I’m feeling a bit bad now for not telling you sooner.
Hubby treated himself to some new boots. Check out these bad boys!!
Towards the end of the week I was making a decision about which coverlock machine I was going to buy. To butter the hubby up I cleaned the conservatory windows inside and out – a job we both detest!
Guess where I’d been – obviously I needed to revamp the storage in my sewing room in readiness for the new arrival.
We went to a Halloween Karaoke night, dressed up of course! The top is a sewaholic renfrew with a high neck (I cut out 2 back pieces), bet you’ve not seen one like this before! I’d forgotten how well this fitted and will be making a few more once my new machine arrives.
I had a narrow escape with an evil clown!
Saturday we had a ride to Halfords for some bike bits and pieces. We usually go to Huddersfield but as the England Rugby team were in action there we went to Dewsbury instead.
I baled out at Lucky Fashions and avoided Halfords. I’ve not called in for months – they had so much gorgeous fabric in. I only had a tenner on me so just bought this. I took a few pics of some other fabrics which took my fancy which I show you soon. If you’re thinking of heading over to Fabworks, you need to call here too, but it’s only open on market days – Wednesdays and Saturdays so plan your journey!
There’s a map here which you can download if you need to see where to go, and park etc.
We took advantage of the extra hour everyone else had in bed, and got up early and went for a 17 mile bike ride. My bum bones are sore this morning asiIt’s been a while!
Sunday I made Yorkshire puddings. It’s so long since I’ve done any baking my scales were flat. I had to google converting grams to american cups so I could measure my flour. When I dished up H wondered where the meat was as he didn’t realise we were having Toad In The Hole!
