Hi everyone, weekend is here at last! What a long week.....
First off, I dropped my laptop and cracked the lid on the outside edge. Thankfully it still works and DH says he paid for accidental damage cover when he bought it for my birthday. Yes, dear readers, I did confess the truth and didnt blame a cat or a teenager. Then I got completely soaked to the skin on return from work and didnt get warmed up for an entire evening :( Then yesterday I was due to have a few hours out after work to go out with my bestest friend Sue from @home but sadly she has caught the dreaded lurgy so we couldnt go - it is not like her to take to her bed with illness so its pretty yukky - get well soon Sue, we can go out another day.
However, the week started off really well, on Sunday evening it was the aforementioned Sue's birthday. We met a few years ago (!!) at art college, a week or so before her birthday. I remember that birthday so well - she got a new bike, a pair of Levi's and an LP of "Year of the Cat" by Al Stewart. A few (!!) years down the line and we get together at her house each year on her birthday for a lovely evening of friendship, chat and Sue's lovely food.
This year I made her a few things for her birthday. First up we have the Zpaghetti bag I made - it is in Sue's favourite colour, purple
It is surprisingly heavy, the yarn is recycled jersey fabric from the fashion industry. She seemed rather pleased with it!
Next, a frilly scarf, another latest crafty craze of mine, and a technique I learned at the Zpaghetti workshop
Sue loves these colours, I have to admit I rather liked them as well!
Now I spotted this cushion and thought she would like it
so I personalised it for Sue by adding the @ sign - the yarn I used to embroider with was bought from a lovely little shop in Darley Dale - more on that another day
Here are the other bits I added to the parcel
We had a lovely evening at Sue's - somewhat foolishly I didnt take any pics of the fab spread of food she put on for us, (too busy eating!!) but Im sure she will post some pics she took when she feels better. Get well soon Sue!xx
Right, now on to the Autumn Views Challenge week 3. Thanks so much to all of you who have joined in, its super to see your photos. This week, colours pretty much the same at my chosen view, but much less in the way of leaves on the branch in the foreground
Here are a few pics of favourite autumn scenes I have spotted this week on my walks around town
Have a wonderful weekend! Im hoping to get out to the woods with the camera, I rather feel a photo fungi forage on the horizon!
