I've been having a lovely weekend. On Saturday we went to Hebden Bridge and then Haworth, for a nice pootle around some lovely shops. I found a shop selling AMAZING light shades, and may actually have found a wall light I actually like (I hate the one in our living room, but haven't been able to find one I particularly like anywhere, and I've been looking on and off for over a year!).

Saturday evening we went for a scrummy curry at the local Aagrah's, and watched movies. I picked up my knitting, and have now done about 1/5 of my scarf:

Sunday we went to Harlow Carr, had a fabulous lunch at Betty's, and really enjoyed exploring the gardens. And were all inspired by quite a few things... shame our garden isn't bigger! That evening we cooked roast beef and Yorkshire pudding for tea, and sat down in front of Sherlock. I worked on sunflower charms:

All in all a fabulous weekend, full of fun, and most importantly a real break for Margaret. We've just dropped her off at the station, and my plan is to be crafty for the rest of my day off - and maybe, just maybe, I'll achieve a happy dance!

Great progress with both your knitting and stitching. i'm amazed at how you found time to do so much with all the trips out you've had as well.

Your knitting is beautiful, what a pretty yarn. And the BBD - it's gorgeous!
