The heading for this post is an oft quoted Miss Helen-ism and aptly describes how we find ourselves currently. We are in a Bliss (see side bar reference) at Sewjourn for the whole weekend!
Of course, a weekend away wouldn’t be complete without a road trip, so we indulged in a visit to Millrose
(the Liberty pears are for you Lizzie!)
As always, the shop was welcoming, warm and cheery, with lots to see and ooh and aah over – which we did plenty of! By the time purchases were made, hungry tummies needed feeding; we took a short stroll down the road to the cafe – so convenient!
The cafe is so inviting
Back on the road it wasn’t long before Sewjourn was in view and we’d settled in; fire roaring, hot cup of tea to hand, complete with home baked goodies, and needles in hand for an afternoon of stitching Bliss! Heaven on a stick indeed!
What’s that?? Our purchases at Millrose? Oh, ok – Helen chose some crotcheting
and this lot is mine; I thought the owl and pussy cat fabric would make a cute bag for Poppet (yes, she’s a bit little at 4 months, but indulge me!!), and Anna Maria Horner ‘cos I love it! How cute are those elephants? And the oranges are just yummy. I’m taking a crochet class later this month, so needed(!) the hook, the wool is for a scarf I’m knitting (more on that later this weekend), and the threads are for Bird Dance.
Have a fabulous weekend my lovelies! We’re going to!
