I’ve been a bit quiet this past week . . . we had family to stay, so I didn’t spend much time in front of my computer, but I did spend lots of time drinking coffee & nattering.
While visitors were here, I managed to persuade them they wanted a quick trip to Noz to see what latest bargains were in and . . . this is my haul.
Three big 350g balls of Scheepjes yarn for only 2.99€ apiece. One ball should be enough to knit a size S lady’s sweater, but I grabbed three, because at that price, I didn’t like to leave any in the shop. And four comic strip books (surprisingly in English) for only 99 centimes each.
Weather was up and down during the week but visitors did get a few fine days, and managed to spend a day sight-seeing in Lyon. During that time, I enjoyed some sun in the garden, and noticed our bottle brush plant has a new lease of life (we thought it had died last year).
I also managed a few hours crafting . . .
and have a finished sugar skull (Sugar Skull ref 3203 kit by Design Works Crafts Inc). It was lots of fun to stitch and I’m seriously thinking about stitching a second one in slightly different colours.
