Weekend Around Home

It’s been a lovely weekend here in the UK, actually sunny and warm. I’ve done some sewing and touristy things, perfect!

First, I’ve been remiss in introducing you to a little fellow that John surprised me with when I got back to the UK this summer. He over looks my sewing as quality control…

Cute gogolittered boots eh!

I finished off a couple baby quilts this weekend and a retro looking Christmas table runner. I’ve kept a red version of the Christmas panel for myself of course…

On the touristy side we finally made it out to the Roald Dahl museum about a half hour from our house in Great Missenden. It was a wonderful little museum on the high street where he lived. They neatest bit was seeing his writing hut as it was (of course they moved it inside the museum but it is still the real thing). Check out how tall we are compared to Dahl and his characters…

A short walk from the museum is the cemetery were Dahl is buried. It was a lovely spot. Check out the BFG foot prints! What a wonderful imagination he had…

The town itself is worth a visit. With some cute shops and quaint houses…
