hooky time again

When the warm sunny days get washed away... it's hooky time!  My new favourite wooly nook - The Textile Studio in Belfast - had the Drops Paris cotton on sale so I bought a bag load - still won't be enough to complete the throw but let's see how it goes!  I fell in love with Julie's rug on this site, but probably shouldn't be doing it in cotton - it's a bit of an experiment but a good chance to play around a bit with colours and patterns.  Open to ideas!

Sunday lunch and no one wanted to cook - it's so humid - so we arranged to meet up at Crawfordsburn Country Park after church - mum, dad and my brother and his family.  We arrived full of good intentions to walk by the beach or through the woods after lunch but it was chucking it down like a monsoon, complete with thunder and lightening.  Junior was the only one to brave it!  The boring adults hogged a table with lots of tea and coffee refills and banter...  Not the worst way to spend a wet afternoon.
