It was probably just as well I couldn't see out yesterday morning because it turned out to be a most dull and dismal day with some heavy rain in the afternoon. Today is supposed to be better, fingers crossed. It's too early to tell yet.
I have almost finished the little jacket: just the button band and collar and then the sewing up, which is often the hardest part with the need for as flat a seam as possible. Maybe today will see it done apart from the buttons which I have to buy.
I also got on with more marking and levelling which has to be done. Again, it went well, it just all takes time!
I had some fun (sad, I know) looking up recipes. However did we manage before Internet came along? Anyway, I found some likely looking ones including a chestnut soup which I want to try out at some point soon. I have a couple of vacu packs of the little beauties that must need using up by now. If it's anything like as delicious as it looks, it will join the list of 'useful Christmas recipes'.
Sorry to use the dreaded C word, but I have a friend coming to stay very soon and will be doing her a Christmas dinner, turkey and all, so it's in my thoughts right now.
Overall, yesterday was a lovely, restful day and, hopefully, today will be the same. I like half term breaks!
Wishing you a safe journey, Diane . . .
