Taking advantage of the Easter long weekend and grabbing a couple of extra days off was a stroke of genius, if I do say so myself.
On Wednesday, a friend and I drove to Bundanoon to spend a pleasant, mid-week day stitching. It was a damp day in the Highlands. Perfect for sitting and sipping coffee and talking and creating little grub roses and French knots.
Thursday gave me a day at home to do anything at all. I decided to search the 'mending' pile for items that had the potential to increase my wardrobe. Even though I tend to put it off, I do have a strange love of mending and repairing. It's like getting new clothes without having to buy them. I sewed up hems on skirts and jeans (sister, take note!), discovering how to use the twin needle on my machine. I repaired some loose lace on a top. And lo and behold: new clothes.
I did a little bit of knitting.
And the long weekend is only just beginning. Ahhh.
