me on Monday

good morning from a wet and overcast Edinburgh. 

16-nov-(12)

I’m wearing my new top and I’ve persuaded Connie the cat to take her tablet and turned around her food bowl so she will eat the food on the other side of the bowl.

Much of my weekend was the same as last weekend with lots of rugby and crochet – but no cold.

Also progress on 2 seasonal decoration projects – sewing a long piece of crochet around a polystyrene ring ready for decoration; and preparing lots of shiny triangles.  This project was prompted by the decoration in John Lewis store and I had thought through how to cut the card and join them with paperclips and that the secret to it looking fabulous was to have lots.  What I’d skimmed over in this thinking was that I would need to punch a hole in the top of each triangle individually to ensure placement and stop undue bending. I’ll share both as they progress

and I remembered to check out the window at dusk to catch the glorious but short lived red sky

Thanks Sian for this idea of recapping the weekend and waving to everyone on Monday morning – have a great week

What a beautiful sky

That's a great, fun picture of you too

Have a great week (you know, having fun browsing that John Lewis you have there and we don't.. I'm still envious! lol)

What a beautiful sky - I love sunsets. Glad to hear the cold was short-lived and you're better now.

I am admiring that top of yours - oh, and the red sunset photo too. It is still overcast and grey here, and I miss those clear Scottish skies you capture so well ...

Oh! Paul & I loved those triangle decorations in John Lewis. If we put the gazebo up (wind depending) I was thinking of putting some up outside. Lots of triangle cutting and hole punching? What a great 'new top' & selfie. Have you trained Connie to take pictures?

lovely recap! and I think it's neat that you began and ended with a landscape (the art in the first photo and the sunset in the last). :)
