Seven snaps for seven days - nine

Just one of the many piles of books waiting to be swapped at book group. Fabulous evening hearing all about potential new reads.

Lovely time at my friends - knitting, nattering and watching The Great British Sewing Bee. This is my friend's fantastic knitwear, both from patterns from Susan Crawford's A Stitch in Time books.

Sun shining through the gills of a mushroom growing at a strange angle out of a moss covered dry stone wall.

A beautiful sunny walk with my sister, my niece and my dog. Watching the river roaring, full of the morning's rain.

My finished Lego creation, built to the exacting specifications of my friend's toddler. Every time I thought I had finished she said 'more' in a very definite manner. It was great fun.

Just beautiful. My Valentine's flowers blooming.

Not just knitting happening at knitting group this afternoon. My friend's wonderful colourful cross stitch based on the Tokyo underground system map.


  1. It must be so much fun being in a knitting group!

    1. It really is! I enjoy my meet ups with the knitting group so much and have made some fantastic friends.

  2. What a gorgeous orchid! Tony gave me three orchid blooms in a very cool, very modern (but in a way that also reads as a timeless, if that makes sense) vase as one of my Valentine's Day presents this year. They were just flower heads, not full plants, so they only lasted a few days, but they were super gorgeous while here and were my first real orchids ever.

    Big hugs & many thanks for your wonderfully nice compliments on this week's 1940s outfit post, sweet dear!

    1. Orchids are so gorgeous aren't they. In a way, flower heads may be better, as once the plant has bloomed I find you have to wait a long time for more flowers, if you get them at all. They do make a fabulous present, I think of them as very glamorous flowers.
