I only have another couple of squares to finish and then its time for the border. I do have a slight impasse in that the wool intended for the border has nearly run out and I can't source more, oops! As we speak I have a few ideas of how to solve the problem, but only time will tell. For now, I can only but hope that this weekend will provide lots of lovely moments for hooking and right now I am feeling rather hopeful.
One always need a little companion for these moments and nothing does it better than a cuppa and a flapjack. Having tried quite a few different flapjack recipes, I always come back to Rachel Allen's recipe with dessicated coconut. The recipe asks to combine it with chocolate, but we all prefer it without.
Our weekend plans are usually dominated by birthday parties, and this weekend is no different. With a rather dank weather forecast for the weekend, plans are largely on hold, hence the optimism for some crochet time. I'm not sure whether we will manage another coat of paint on the wendy house, but I promise to share once completed. There is also the plan to make some bowls out of doilies, so we will see how this goes. Have you ever tried this and if so did you use sugar or fabric stiffener?? What are your experiences here?
For now, it's time to sign off, but before I go, I want to share some very delicious parcels I have recently received from orders I placed at the Vintage Sheet Addict Etsy shop. Ada is running a 20% off promotion until tomorrow, you can read more about it on her very lovely blog. I was delighted today when my second parcel arrived and here's what I found inside.
I just love all these retro wallpapers and look forward to putting them into good use. My fave, which I LOVE, is the third roll from the top in the first photo.
So what are your plans for the weekend?? What projects are you working on?
Wishing you all a very lovely weekend, thanks for stopping by.
