Then I paused, breathed, and focused my mind on Hygge, within seconds I felt my heart rate drop and my tense shoulders relax.
I have some fabric, cream with a tiny black polka dot, that I bought ages ago specifically for binding. I will use that.
The wips have no time schedule, they can wait till I feel ready to work on them again.
I can make the binding and get it applied today, tomorrow the quilt can be washed and tumbled and then packed and posted off on Monday.
I still need to make a trip to Llandeilo but not today, I will plan to do it next week and we will take the dogs with us. They will like to have lots of new smells to linger over and new places to explore.
After my hiccup in the evening I slept like a bump on a log and woke ready to hit the ground running.
My first Advent sock is finished, all bar the afterthought heel.
It is a fairly short sock, my feet are never cold and long socks make me very hot.
I have worked some more on those "sticky" socks. They will need a soak in hair conditioner to soften them up a bit.
We had a yearning for some raisin and cinnamon bread, so a loaf went into the bread machine. It is sooo good, there are plenty of raisins in there, just not in the first slice.
A sign of my love for the SO, he had the crust!
When my son was a toddler my young brothers used to spend most of their school holidays with us. Michael loved having his uncles there and it helped my Mum out. They all loved the crusts off a new loaf and I often baked bread and then cut all the crusts off. The middles would become toast or bread and butter pudding. Needless to say I very rarely got a crust in those days either.
After a very murky start to the day yesterday turned out dry, with blue skies but still very cold and windy. Today is damp but the wind has dropped considerably. Herbie has had a decent walk, he will still have his little walk with Rufus, but I wanted to get a good one in while the weather permitted.
I made a slow cooker batch of veg stock overnight and this morning it has become soup. I used a big pack of ready chopped veg from Tesco, rtc 25p, and some red lentils. It is cooled and in the fridge ready for lunch. The cottage pie was delicious last night and I made a pear crisp for pudding, it makes a change from crumble, with a good shake of mixed spice in the topping.
Tonight is a mystery so far, it could be a case of open the freezer and have a lucky dip.
There is more controversy over Strictly, and some one is discussing it on the telly right now.
It is almost as bad as Brexit.
Now 'tis time for tea.
