On our return I pottered around doing odd jobs and thought that a pot of soup sounded good, half an hour or so later a pot of Minestrone was ready to be cooled, and the fridge bottom was free of the remains of the last shopping trip veggies.
By now the sun was indeed shining so a trip to the park in Garnant was the order of the day. I had never been before but had heard lots about it. A few minutes drive and we were there, the sun continued to do its job and the dog walkers were out in force.
Ben had his head down scurrying around trying desperately to catch every last smell. I took the chance to get a few snaps.
This little pond was securely fenced in.
I had to smile at this sign, no chance of that today.
There are tarmac paths running all around, no soggy trainers here.
Unless of course you get too close to this.
The information signs are full of colour, and written in Welsh and English.
Back on the path again, we spent a good hour and a half there. I chatted to the other walkers and Ben spent time with an assortment of dogs, he was intrigued by a very elderly Jack Russell who was being carried in a bag. He has his walk and when tired sits down and waits to be picked up and carried.
I had a little sewing time this afternoon, a friend asked for 2 quilted place mats, and these were a very quick make.
I had a fairly large bit of quilted crazy patchwork and just used some excess quilt binding to finish the edges.
I had enough to make this little thing, I saw a version of in on the net this morning and had to do it.
It is just big enough to take a small knitting or crochet project to Knit and natter, or even some hexies and sewing paraphernalia, just the ticket for some EPP.
This evening I have been reading and blog hopping, and there may have been a doze or 2 as well.
Now it is hammering down with rain, Ben has been out and towelled dry, he is bone dry now and I am falling asleep while typing this.
I bid you all a good night, I hope that you are all looking forward to the weekend, I know that I am. But then I look forward to everyday. The little quilted project pouch was a very quick make, if anyone would like one let me know, I am happy to make one and send it off, same thing as the craft caddy, names in a dish and pick one out. I am on such a roll getting through the stash that I want to go faster.
BTW I am really starting to make an impression on the fabric stash, and not before time. I had started to wonder if the sewing fairies were stocking me up while I slept.
