The past week has been mostly about...

...wondering where the time is going. I mean, really?! I drop Little Girl off at school, come home and then all of a sudden it's time to collect her again!

...planting out some raspberry canes! I was lucky enough to be given these by a friend and spent one morning last week (and I seemed to pick one of the coldest days!), took a deep breath and made a trench in our new lawned garden. I'm hoping they'll do really well and that the birds won't eat all of them - I'm very excited about the idea of strolling down the garden to pick some fruit for my breakfast!


...spending the weekend catching up with friends.This involved quite a lot of travel time in the car which made for some perfect Mara knitting!


...meeting with friends at a pub in the centre of Avebury. The sky was ominous but we managed a short stroll and got back to the car literally minutes before the rain came down!

It is a really impressive site to visit, and difficult to give an idea of scale. Upclose, the stones themselves have fantastic texture, colours and shape

One of my favourite bits was rounding a corner and coming across this tree - the tangle of roots was just amazing!


...jumping on the Bloglovin bandwagon! Google reader is disappearing in July so to keep up with all my favourite reads I've signed up, and if you like you can follow me here. It really is easy - took mere minutes!

...I've also been working away on organising my sewing space. It's nearly there now, I'm very excited! It's involved painting and decopatch. Can't get much better than that!!!


See you all soon,

Todays sky ● quite overcast but there have been snippets of blue

Fun times, and looking forwards to seeing your new sewing space when it's all finished! :o)

Ooo, good luck with the raspberries! My dad-in-law grows them, and they're delicious. I love the colours in the yarn you're using, and I shall look forward to seeing your sewing space.

Cheers Lynne - everyone keeps assuring me they're really easy to grow, so we'll have to see! The yarn is a Kaffe Fasset Regia sock yarn, quite spring like colours though I thought :) x

Sonia said...

I know - I'm hoping it will look as good as the image I have in my head!!! x

That seems like a lot of things getting done to me. I'm jealous of the raspberry canes - so yum and the smell is fantastic too! Currently don't even have a balcony to call my own. The yarn is very Spring-y, can't wait to see the outcome of all your endeavours!

The tree roots are amazing! And I love the flowery deco patch

OMG Sonia I couldn't believe it when I saw the photos in your post, I'm from Marlborough and Avebury was my playground with the kids when they were soooo much smaller - my favourite tree is the one you have photographed with all her roots on show. I own a painting by Micheal Stride it's the exact view across the stones where you've stood and taken your top photo, I have it here with me on my wall in the States - here's a link to it. That place means so much to me, it's made my day reading your post!

I'm glad you enjoyed your weekend :)
