Just one of those afternoons……

Sunday Afternoon- Bruce Bingham

It was one of those afternoons.

One where we had nothing arranged or even a desire to arrange anything.

What to do – what shall I do ?

i could start pinning Doug together.    As you pin you have to tuck the long fur inside the two pieces so it doesn’t get caught up in the seam.  A bit time consuming but a necessary evil needed to be done  before I begin to sew the pieces together.

I could knit – except I’m ‘between garments’ (meaning I’ve finished everything I had on the go so have nothing on my needles) and if I cast on something else I’ll just carry on with it and not get round to Doug.

I thought I might read – that’s always good to pass the time away.  After all it was a cold winters Sunday afternoon and an hour on the couch with Kiera and a book would be good.  I’d had loads of fun during the first six month of this year and read books like crazy.  So I updated my ‘Books read in 2017page (see up on the header) and then looked over what I’ve got sitting here.  A couple from my Alphabet challenge and one a ‘pick a book – any book’ off the shelf.

Nope didn’t fancy any of them – I do have another on the go so best I finish it. It’s about a strange (in a nice way) family so I might get a post out of it.

And it looks like Doug’s big legs won in the end. I had some news yesterday that means I’m going to be seeing a lot more of Doug in the next few weeks.  I’ll tell you about it another time 🙂

And how about you- what did you do this past Sunday afternoon?

  2. Oh, yeah, the thing with the fur in the seams, I had forgotten. Has been a long time since I have sewn ‘fur’ fabric. I hope it’s coming right along by now. 😀

    • It should be fun – keeping in mind he will only be 6mths old, have experienced his first flight, be amongst a crowd of rellies all wanting a cuddle and possibly be feeling miserable because he will be teething.

      All ggod fun to look forward to 🙂

    • Doug will take me a little while Dawn – my fingers aren’t quite as nimble as they used to be. And yes, the week certainly ended up being a ‘good news week’

  3. I caught up with all the mail that needed to be responded to and updated all backlog and read five chapters of a book that I am reading which I hope to finish reading in the next couple of days.

  5. Doug is CUTE! Fun project. Love the image at the top of your post. Let’s see, what did I do on my Sunday…I read five chapters of my current book aloud to myself, watched a movie and knitted my way through an entire skein of cobalt blue mohair yarn. Lovely quiet Sunday.
