Hello, the weather's still very changeable and the summer seems a distant memory now. House moving plans have stalled for the moment and I've done as much sorting and clutter clearing as I can for now, so to take my mind off things for a while a new project was needed. Yes, there's a pile of crochet squares to turn into a blanket and umpteen quilty WIPS to finish, but I really wanted to start something new using lots of my palest rosy fabrics. Not sure how it will end up yet, but just playing around with them makes me happy!
Other things I've enjoyed this week include more dramatic skies and lovely rainbows.
Yummy warming porridge for breakfast with honey and fresh fruit, or lots of homemade gooseberry compote.
Fruity flapjacks made with odds and ends from the baking cupboard. Very moreish and quite nutritious!
And a great book by Kate Adie about women's roles in the First World War. Full of information on everything from dangerous munitions work and engineering, to the land army and medical help, often close to the front lines and unpaid, or for much less than men doing the same job!
The story of women's football was new to me. With all the young men away fighting, many women's teams sprang up and drew large crowds, probably for the shocking sight of bare legs! I love this team photo with their mob caps.
Hope it's not too windy where you are.
