The Weekend

 
We went along to the Scottish Airshow this weekend, it was a really good event. I loved this heart in the sky and we all particularly enjoyed the Blades aerobatic display team - they were fantastic and such fun to watch...
 
 
I managed a wee bit of crochet over this weekend as well. I now only have six squares left to make for my blanket! I am aiming to make 144 in total. I'm really trying not to think of all those ends I will have to sew in...
 
 
I picked a little posy of flowers from the garden to have on my bedside table and wondered if this might very well be the last of this years summer flowers...
 
 
This afternoon was spent on a five mile sponsored walk with my Brownie unit. Everyone did really well and the girls enjoyed picking some brambles along the way...
 

 

Tonight I have my popcorn ready and I'm just about to watch the Strictly Come Dancing launch show. It has been a busy but lovely weekend! I hope you have all had a good one too?

  1. 144 squares. Made of two colours per square. That's 4 ends per square, assuming you didn't crochet along the two ends where the colour is changed. I will not make the total of the ends-to-sew-in, that would be depressing... I think you are a very courageous lady ;-))))

  6. Are you going to crochet the squares together using a continuous join? That would at least reduce the number of ends.

  7. Well done on the blanket - I decided mine was complete halfway through as couldn't be asked to make more squares - only I've come to a halt sewing them together! x

  12. What great pics of the airshow, the heart in the sky looks great, although I wouldn't want to be in the aircraft that made it (fear of flying)! Pretty bedside posy, how lovely to wake up to the scent of sweet peas. Hope you enjoyed Strictly. Have a great week Marianne.

  16. Sounds like a lovely weekend. I love the heart shape in the sky but I don't envy you all those ends to sew in! Can't wait for Strictly to start properly. By the way, I heard that Channel 5 have decided not to show the new series of Once upon a Time - so disappointed! x
