Pseudo Sewjourn ~ Part 2

Thank you for all your lovely comments about my Pseudo Sewjourn weekend and so pleased so many of you are going to do something similar – we need to keep our spirits up!

Yesterday morning I did a couple of things (which would have been our travel time), one of which I’ll tell you about after the weekend, and the other was to get some takeaway sandwiches for our lunch from a local cafe, to help support them.

After lunch I settled down in the lounge, putting on the fire and setting up “Boston Legal” for a bit of a binge. I came late to this series and missed the first season (or two? – I’ll find out as we go along).

I’d decided on a bit of knitting; my (purchased) walking gloves have given up the ghost so I’ve been meaning to knit these for a while to keep my hands warm and also give quick access to my phone (mostly for changing songs skipping ads etc). By evening’s end my “Leaves Fingerless Gloves” (pattern available on Ravelry) were finished!

On the way I had pre-dinner nibbles and a glass of Chardonny

The Golfer has listened(!) and taken in all the nuances of our weekend at Sewjourn and expertly cooked up the kebabs and decanted the salad (all from The Golf Club kitchen) and came to the lounge door to announce that “dinner is served, Madam” and bowing. Hilarious!

He wouldn’t let me clean up (which I would have done if someone else had cooked at Sewjourn), but sent me back to the lounge room, then brought in dessert. Not much for presentation but A+ for effort! Scrumptious salted caramel tart, in case you’re wondering.

I actually felt a bit lonely stitching on my own and not up to watching movies – just didn’t feel right. So after “Baptiste” finished I toddled off to bed, yep, got into those llama pajamas and had a good night’s sleep. Did anyone else watch “Baptiste”? Not happy with that ending!

Today I’ve had blueberry pancakes for breakfast (me made as we always BYO our brekkie at Sewjourn)

and now its coffee time and decisions on what to stitch and what to watch!

Hope you’re having a lovely weekend too.

    Wow – no girl talk but a pretty nice Sewing Sojourn all the same ,espaecially with a live-in chef. I was left high and dry after Baptiste as well. I hope that there is another series very very soon.I am back ti finishing UFOs and amazed at not only how many I have, but also the sense of achievement at finishing and wondering why i didn’t do it earlier.

    I have been working on finishing a baby blanket and watching The House of Elliot. Hoping to get it finished this weekend and finishing off a table runner.

    Yes Meredithe I watched Baptists which was a repeat but still enjoyed. You are a wonder with all your different projects. The Golfer is a treasure do you hire him out🤣🤣🤣

    Re: Baptiste – we was robbed! I’m sure there is another episode last night’s episode left things a bit up in the air.
    Maybe ABC got its lines crossed !!

    Oh how I am enjoying your “virtual” sewjourn M. You made my day yesterday when I read about your plans and brightened up my breakfast!! And what a productive day today for you. Enjoy your “virtual” trip home tomorrow and drive safely! 🤗🤗

    Glad the Golfer is taking good care of you! I’m home alone, so I have had a fun morning doing some free motion doodling, and after lunch I shall do some work in the garden. Ih the bliss of not being subjected to football on the TV, will probably watch a film and stitch hexies tonight!!

    Love your positive attitude. Are the rest of the girl group doing the same thing? We’re all learning to be a little more flexible.

  9. It’s delightful that your Golfer is so willing to enter into the spirit of it all. He certainly sounds like a keeper.

    I also applaud your idea of supporting local food outlets, which is something we’ve continued as much as possible during lockdown.

    Safe travels home tomorrow 🙂

    Could you give a link for your fingerless gloves pattern, please? I search for ‘leaves fingerless gloves’ on Ravelry but found 208 entries and could not see one with your name on it at a swift glance. 🙂 I like your design and if I start knitting now I might have them ready to wear by the time the weather changes here in eastern MD.

    🙂 Linda

  11. What a lovely day! And well done, the Golfer!

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
