DH’s Birthday, Maplefest (annual local event), Chapters book browsing, seeing Iron Man 3 (which was awesome!) watching Leafs tear your heart out, Craft group, lunch with the girls, Knittin club and Physio followed by lunch out with MiL (who has completely recovered, yay) and through all this I am beavering away on my Dawn till Dusk Lace shawl, this has indeed been a humdinger of a week…
I’m in the middle of a pile of projects, embarrassed to say nothing done this week. Well started weeding the garden, we dug out 2 dead bushes and filled the planters with fresh soil… and making plans for the big event for my DS (more to come on this next month).
I adopted a couple of new books this week :0)
The Knitting Stitch Bible by Maria Parry-Jones
you can never have too many stitch dictionaries!
Found on ravelry: Damask by Kitman Figueroa I liked this so much I bought the pattern one day I will knit it.
I have been enjoying reading other people’s blogs, I’m going to start linking to some you might enjoy too :0)

Inspiration to add to my large collection of what happened next in the Austen novels.
What am I reading? Mr Darcy’s Diary by Maya Slater
