A walk by the river

Wow - it's Bank Holiday weekend, and this is the second nice day!  What has happened?

The "boys" have gone to an end of rugby season party - paint-balling, bbq and a camp out - so I have some time to myself (and the remote control later if I want to watch TV!).

After a trip to the garden centre, and I little bit more gardening, I blocked my wrap.

I finished it last night - the wedding is next weekend, so plenty of time.  Now to start the bag.
The wrap pattern is here

Then I was able to meet up with my mum and go for a nice, leisurely walk by the river.
Usually one of us is in a rush, or the weather is horrid, so it was nice to be able to take our time, and chat, and enjoy the scenery.

 Her dog enjoyed it too - a quick dip was needed.
 Blue skies!
 Not sure what these leaves are - they looked quite odd.

And now home for a cuppa (and maybe a glass of wine a bit later).
Enjoy the rest of your long weekend.

    1. Glad you liked the photos - it has been a rare thing with sunshine throughout the Bank Holiday - but we are forecast more wind and rain tomorrow! x

  2. That looks like a wonderful, relaxing weekend. That wrap looks beautiful. I really like the dark colour you chose with the little beads/crystals on the ends. So pretty. x

    1. Thank you. I'm looking forward to wearing it next weekend to my sister in laws wedding. I need to finish my bag too!
      Hope the rest of your weekend has been good too. x
