Yesterday started out as another grey day, with just a patch of sun over the tree tops. It eventually turned into glorious sunshine, until I had walked up to my friends allotment to help out with weeding,(in exchange for some more sweet peas) then the heavens opened.
I have done a lot of knitting this week, so the mittens are finished and F is thrilled. They are now ready for her as she cycles to sixth form next term.
I have also bought a very pretty tray, in TK MAX, I just love it!

Today I have made the Lemon Blueberry scones found on Debs blog. They smell delicious and I can't wait to taste them later. Off to cut the lawn.

We also sewed a new dress out of new fabric, but using an old Style pattern from 1980s, it had to to be taken in alot because sizes then were larger than sizes now, but the finished result looks good. The buttons are from a selection I aquired from an eldery aunt, the label said 1/4d old money!
