A very well timed eye spy theme from Trashalou this week, as Chris and I have spent the weekend among the rolling green hills of Berry and it's surrounds.
The kids had a weekend with my mum and had a super great time, and while we spent a fair bit of time talking about them, and missing them, it was really nice to spend some time just the two of us. Everywhere we went the food was amazing, and everywhere you looked there was something beautiful.
We spent some money too (or actually on reflection, I was the one who spent most of the money.) I especially loved the craft shop "Sew and Tell" where I spied Weekend Sewing (among other things) and snapped it up.
You may notice I haven't posted anything since last Sunday and this is why...
I spied this adorable caplet on Lisa's blog, and after checking in with her about how hard it was, I bought it from Leila and Ben and had a go. I have never unravelled so much yarn in my entire life! It was a pretty consuming project as I have all of a handful-of-granny-squares-experience in crochet, but after a lot of perseverance and laughing at my own incompetence, I cracked it and am now making one for myself! The Leila and Ben etsy shop is pretty sweet. And they have great customer service too!
