Very windy but bright and warm.  Really need to get outside today, so maybe sit in the garden for a while.

Made a salad and a large lentil bake for dinner.  Also some potato cakes for tomorrow. 

Opened my fabric parcel this morning from Lamazi Fabrics.  Some beautiful crinkled viscose and a lovely rib knit melange for a cardigan.    In fact it feels so nice I might have to order at least one other colour.  ;). So the washing machine will be on later.

Ok looks like this machine is destined to stay with me, Efemera has decided against having it.  So if anyone is interested let me know.
Just to make it clear I will send by courier if needed, the cost for the machine including the postage is now £420.00 however I will not be able to include the extension table in that price as it needs to be sent separately but I will send it if someone wants to pay the postage, hope that makes sense.
If anyone can collect it will be £395.00 including the extension table or of course if you want to arrange your own courier that is fine.

Hi all. It was a noisy night here, with illegal fireworks. Despite that, I managed to get some sleep.
I did my first embroidery on my clothing yesterday. I need work on placement, but I still like it.

Today I am out for some archery in the morning.

Just found that Cotswold Needlecraft is only about a half hours drive away from here. May go for a trip at sometime  :thumbsup:

Thanks for the advice. I ordered a spool of Madeira gold & some suitable needles. Once I get them, I will do some test sewing.

Hiya
I've risked washing on line - son's work clothes and best place for them.
Daughter is going to try to collect photos of family taken today to make a  memory collage for us. Lovely idea  :D

Not aiming to do anything today - garden can wait a day, BOM can wait a day, just lazing, may get bored later and end up with quilting box out though

Dog has just had a really bad 'turn'. She was on the sofa but I have put her ont he floor for safety. Worst one she has had for a while. Some results on Tuesday but having to face up to a solution later

As part of my planning, I thought that I might focus on pj's this year.  And so for my daughter and my niece will be a nightgown and matching robe, in this ancient Kwiksew pattern.

My niece will love them in a slippery, shiny satin, but I think I might make my daughter's in a soft lawn.

@Ploshkin its a cook in the bag so the chicken is in a tray with dressing inside the bag.  If I turn the whole lot over to read it the dressing comes out of the tray and doesn’t go back in.  You don’t open the bag until a short while before it’s cooked. I said I was being lazy.
