This past week has been a much better one I'm pleased to say, I guess having the latter part of the week off and going to Brighton for a few nights also helped. Even though Brighton is only an hour away, its always nice to change your environment every now and again. I have a restless soul and can never feel completely satisfied staying at home when I am on holiday from work.
We caught up with Andy's family and wished Connie a very happy first birthday with some books and homemade knits and crochet goodies. I made this easy sleeveless cardy for her (pattern found here) which Fiona her mum loves.
A sweet mixture of two colours, one cotton, the other merino to make a chunky quite warm and heavy mid-season knit.
Despite the weather getting a little bit warmer and sunnier, some apple crumble was called for last Sunday. I substituted a lot of the flour for oats and flaked almonds and served it with creamy coconut yoghurt. Sounds like an odd combination but it went down a treat.
I liked the shadows on my dining room wall created by the conversation clouds made by Bronwen.
Brighton brought it's colours and happiness too.
My mother in law still lives in the original family home just into Hove, beyond the seven dials area and I love walking down all the terrace house roads and looking at the array of colourful doors and being nosey and seeing if I can see people's interiors.I'm a real snoop, I am!
Look at this...yummy image from one of my mother in laws neighbours. I'm so sorry but I just could not resist snapping this image.
We spent an afternoon pootling around Shoreham just down the coast from Hove after a lovely fish meal on the seafront yesterday afternoon.
It was great for charity shopping and tea and cake! Oh, and Shoreham has the most amazing traditional and old fashioned yarn and needlecraft shop too.
Pure eye candy.
Uuum, I think I came away with some of that candy.
A little vintage emporium visit tickled our fancy and some old Sanderson fabric and glasses purchasing was in order.
Last, but not least I loved giving Connie her very own Bunny Boo.
A rather sweet addition to the Bunny Boo family I think. The first Bunny Boo I made can be seen here.
So, those were a few snippets of sweet moments from my past week. Thank you for coming by, I'm sorry not to have visited your blogs for a while, I hope to catch up this weekend. Have a good one x
See you soon
