... week! It's kind of flown by; annoyingly I was poorly yet again last week and spent a few days in bed (and some enforced no-laptop-use), even Hubby was poorly over the weekend (almost unheard of!). However we did manage to pop out of the house a few times :)
Whilst stuck in bed I kept my fingers busy by doing some sewing, I made a large denim, sequinned rosette (which looks better in reality than it does here, trust me)
and a little hand-sewn fabric purse in a couple of my favourite Michael Miller fabrics
Sadly my sewing machine collapsed at the beginning of last week - it's very old and clearly needs a service! I did manage ONE Hankie lavender bag before it died...
I've since figured a slightly better way of creating the bags - cutting the plain half of the hankie off, putting the lavender in that half, then putting that bag inside the embroidered half - now I just have to sort out my machine.
On Saturday we went out for my father-in-law's 76th birthday to a great restaurant called Jones in Braunstone Gate in Leicester. They have a great "2 mains for £12" (it used to be 2 for £10!) and make fabulous 'cooked to order' risottos, pastas and mussel dishes.
I had the wonderful cherry tomato and mozzarella risotto followed by an amaaaazing chocolate raspberry tart (truly heavenly). I also had a lovely chat with my 13 year old niece who is really excited about seeing My Chemical Romance next week (bless her) and discussing books and rubbish tv.
Hope you all had a fab weekend too. x
