Sunday was a wash out but it didn't stop us venturing out to walk Moss (Jack and me). The good thing about wet weather is that you have the fields to yourself! Only the true dog owners brave wet, cold windy weather and that's exactly what it was like in Easter Sunday. Heating on, hot chocolate and drying wet clothes!

What a difference on Monday, warm and sunny so we popped to Maidstone to walk along the river, have some lunch and do some shopping. I bought two new cushions, hand knitted in charcoal and one in biscuit perfect for one large sofa and I'm sure I saw another one in the Ashford branch of tk max, I'll pop over there next week to see if its still available. I can't take the credit for these, my husband Ian chose them. Oversized, feather filled cushions, and so comfortable that Ian is asleep on one of them as I type!!

I've almost finished the large stripe granny blanket with about 3 stripes to go (six rows) to 60 stripes but I might make it a bit bigger but I'm itching to try a ripple blanket so maybe not. I'm glad it was a chilly start to the weekend (and tonight) so I could get on with it. Here's a couple of photos (lighting not very good this evening). I hope you had a great weekend too with some sunshine, crafting, getting together with friends/family and eating Easter eggs. Amanda x
