Hi, did you all have a good weekend ? The girls went to V Festival in Staffordshire, not far from where we live so Hubby and I went down to Brean again.The weather was good and we had a really lovely time, I can't remember the last time we went away just the two of us.
I don't know what's the matter with me but the last couple of weeks I haven't been able to finish a full square for Carole's, One A Day. I have managed to do some of the cream around some of the pink centres though.
Take a look here to see how everybody else has got on.
What I have managed to finish though is my Beach Hut Doorstop designed by Susie Johnson from The Wool Sanctuary. Susie taught Kirstie Allsopp to knit and was featured in Kirstie's Homemade Home.
When I went to Brean the weekend before, I started knitting it on the beach, which I thought was a good place to knit a beach hut, lol, I also took a little bag of sand from the beach to fill it when it was finished.
It's a nice, easy pattern to follow and I soon got the front, back and some of the side finished but when I came to do some more the following day, I'd lost one of my needles on the beach the previous day, sob*sob*. I got Paige and Mick looking along the sand where we'd been sat the day before, but it was gone.
They were Knit Pro and the lady who sold them told me they were the Rolls Royce of knitting needles, I'm hoping some children found it and thought they'd found a pretty stick !!!
Here's a photo of my one lonely needle, I have replaced it now, I went back to House Of Fraser who are selling Knit Pro at less than half price, bargain !!!!!
You can find the pattern for the Beach Hut, here, I've also bought Susie's new book, Janet Smith Can't Knit. It's such a fun book, full of quirky, colourful patterns.
Here a few of my Instagram photo's from last weekend.

On our way home we stopped at Clevedon, a quaint Victorian seaside town, I had my first savoury cream tea at Tiffin's, it was delicious and consisted of cheese scones, apple chutney and cream cheese, yum,yum. We sat on the terrace, overlooking the beautiful seafront watching the world go by, a perfect end to a perfect weekend.
Thanks for stopping by, I can never get any internet where we stay so I'll catch up with everyone's blog this week.
