Flowers from friends, an impromptu gathering around the dinner table and plenty of food to share.
The "flowers" are actually ornamental cabbage!
For a two days of sunshine, warming the heart and lifting the spirits.
For gluten free bread and pizza making using a Polish potato bread recipe ~ it turned out good.
A quiet prayer time with Dave, whilst Sara, Benedict and Pip attended church parade on Rememberance Sunday.
Regular sewing time during this week. Whilst Sara and Dave held the fort downstairs with childcare and kitchen duty, I was in the loft room and the result thus far is a corduroy dress for me, with another ready to go and some Christmas/ Birthday gifting from this book:
Making steady progress with the Christmas knitting too. With a bit of luck and hard work, I think most of the gifts this year will be handmade. Great for the planet and our budget!
For painting time and a Martinmas Lantern glowing peacefully in our prayer corner:
If you look closely you'll see her tongue sticking out! She was concentrating hard!
I had a go too. It was a welcome antidote to an otherwise very challenging day!
Sara did a fab job cutting out the pentagon shapes and then gluing it all together.
Thanks to Taryn for reminding me to stop and give thanks.
