The weekend..

Well this weekend has been fairly quiet. We did visit my husband's relatives yesterday and had a good chat and a few laughs with my sisters -in -law. Today , other than going to church it's been reading and dare I say it--- crocheting.
The latter is not going too well. I am supposed to be crocheting a waistcoat for my oldest daughter. Now this has been 'on the go' for a few weeks and this is my 4th attempt. For some reason previous attempts have failed due to my inability to crochet in a straight line(lol). This last try is from a 1970's pattern and hopefully it WILL work. I don't have any photos (I wouldn't dare ) if it does proceed well you will be the first to see it, but please don't 'hold your breath!!'

On the reading front I have started a Cadfael novel, 'St Peter's Fair' to be exact and this is proving a good read. Just by chance this evening I watched Channel 4's the TV Book Club.
Their next book is by Iain Pears , a murder mystery , namely 'Stone's Fall'. So tomorrow I'll visit the library for a copy.If successful I'll join in the discussion next week.
Hope you have all had a good weekend and the coming week pans out well.

I've yet to pluck up the courage to do a crocheted garment. Hope it works out for you

Sorry to hear the crocheting hasn't worked out.... afghans are the only think I've managed to do! Have a good week.
