Saturdays are the best

Its official. I don't want today to end. I woke up this morning had a cup of tea, did lots of blog reading, checked my emails and read some comments. After the boring bit of house work.....mopping floors, vacuuming etc (YUK!!) The rest of the day was all mine.

The other half was at work all day (again!) so there was just me and Nell and occasionally Oliver (when he thought there was food in the offering) and my sewing to catch up on. Bliss.....

This afternoon was spent drinking copious amounts of tea and coffee with the odd occasional digestive biscuit to dunk, sitting in the quiet, sewing away. Cant show you yet what though as its not finished but I can show you a scarf that my Mam sent me that needed repairing in some sort of way. Her friend got it caught in the zip of her coat and had to cut it free leaving a squarish hole in her favourite scarf.....well what better than adding a lovely felt flower hand stitched :)

Obviously in matching colour
I do hope my Mam's friend likes it.
After dinner it was unfortunately time for the other half to go back to work again....urrggghh! So I decided to round the day off by pouring myself a glass of wine and finished off the choccies I had left from Valentines Day. Yum!

Off shopping with a friend tomorrow, probably nip in somewhere and have a bit lunch too :) End to a perfect weekend me thinks!
