I popped in to town yesterday to get a ball of purple yarn to sew up the cardigan for Flo as the sequined yarn is impossible to sew with.
While I was there I got this yarn:
to make another cushion cover for the sofa. It is 50% pure merino wool so it feels really nice. I described a while back of the sort of cushion cover I was hoping to make – something with a chunky wool and a bit of cabling. Rachel at Eternally 28 kindly sent me a PDF of a pattern she had which was exactly what I had in mind so I am hoping to make a start on this over the weekend.
While I was in town I also treated myself to a new magazine. I don’t often buy magazines but this is one I will buy when tempted to treat myself. The main reason for not buying magazines is that you pay a lot of money for an awful lot of adverts but occasionally the need for inspiration strikes and I treat myself to a magazine. Roses feature heavily in the June Country Living and as roses are my absolute favourite flower I succumbed to temptation.
The weather still promises to be good today, dry over the weekend but not as warm so I am trying to fill the washing lines up to make the most of it. I hope you are all having a good Friday and looking forward to the weekend. We have a friend coming over tomorrow night with her two girls to do homemade pizza and homemade ice-cream, Flo is super excited as are the girls who are coming and the grown-ups are looking forward to it too. I hope you all have nice plans for the weekend.
