A good day......

Every so often I feel the need for a little break. So this week was duly booked off as holiday.
Well,what a nice day I've had, after a nice lie in until 9.30 I came down to lovely sunshine.It was bliss to wander round the garden and wonder what to do (like I didn't know!)...After tea and toast and a bit of blog hopping I took myself over to Hobby Craft ...don't you just love wandering down those crafty aisles? I pondered for ages in the wool/yarn section and picked some yummy yarn out for a new pattern I found this morning....(I know,I know,like I need more - but it was really nice) and I do have to have a couple of projects on the go.

Then I made my way home and started on my mini - (that's not now so mini ) book of the Tower of London photos. I decided to do it in 8 1/2 x 11 size  as I really like that so it's not that mini really!

I'm actually using some old October Afternoon stash and odds and ends of old kits so am feeling very happy that I'm actually using some stuff up for once..specially as I bought wool this morning! It's been a lovely day today, Wimbledon has started so I just had to go and get some strawberries and cream to have without bar-b-que this evening...all in all a nice day ...hope yours has been good too..

Sounds like a lovely relaxing day.
The 8 1/2 x 11 sixe albums are my fave at the moment....quick to do....but you can still get quite a lot on a page.

Not as good as yours! Although I only work half day on a Tuesday so that was a good thing.
So what is the next wooly project then? Do share ....

I too love browsing the yarn isles.
I hope you've gotten your yarn for the Lucy stripped granny blanket.
Do take pictures and share your progress and I will too! You are so right, Lucy has shaken and stirred the blogworld!

Sounds like a pretty perfect day to me! We don't have Hobbycraft, but now I've seen that wool I'll be looking out for one on my holidays. What are you going to make next then?
