That there looks like a mighty fine, autumnal weekend worth of activity.

Knitting, baking and dyeing...heaven! :)

Oh Suse ... I saw that pic of bread and my head went, oh fuck off. Not nice, I know. But I want to sit and eat the whole damn thing with salty eggplant dip, some basil, anchovies and cheese. Can you see the problem? On top of the obvious gluttony issue, I am unable to eat my favourite food - bread. Without proper diagnosis, an elimination of the food staple had me jumping out of my skin, dropped weight (a lot of it) and stopped having to excuse myself in public before running off to another room. Proper diagnosis will never be forthcoming, least it prove the bleedin' obvious, that my stomach is a no bread zone. So my darling blogger, can you go and stuff your face full of your gorgeous bread somewhere else?
Oh, and I think the sewing, dyeing and knitting quite nice.

It looks like you have had a great weekend. That bread looks so yummy.

If that is the graphite wool, then I would call it demin...

Jodie said...

Your weekend looks divine - I played with toys....

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

Heavenly bread !! And I love that wool ...lovely subtle colours .What a satisfactory weekend !

Janet said...

mmm that bread looks divine, just ready to cut into.... I found it hard to get past the bread, but the rest of your weekend looked pretty fine too.

Rachel said...

Didn't achieve as much as you did, evidently!

My verification word is geocardi - lovely! Cardigans across the globe.....

I am IN LOVE with that skirt. I wish I liked to WEAR skirts, though, which sadly I do not. I just like to ogle them, apparently.

But as it happens, I did spend a good part of my weekend browsing online for some wide-legged cropped pant patterns, which I DO intend to make. Very soon now. Promise!

I think Mary is very, very proud and would write a poem about your w/e if she knew.


ps word veri. is .......woolool !

Elizabeth said...

Hmm. My comment didn't take.
What did I say? Oh yes, something about my weekend not being over yet (holiday today) and needing more time to finish so I have something to blog about (surprise, surprise)
Well, it's later (much later) and I'm still not finished but the day isn't over yet...

Looks like you had a productive one, nice output, Suse! I want to know all about the blue knit in the middle.

Kate said...

That garter stitch! Just gave me a whole body shiver. Mmmmmm...

docwitch said...

What katiecrackernuts just said. Except that I'm a dreadful masochist and love to look upon that which I cannot have.

Love the skirt - that A-line is beautiful realised, (hehe - I think such a term should as easily apply to sewing as any other artform).

The wool is gorgeous - as ever. And I am planning to (finally!) get 'round to posting what I made with the divine wool I bought from you.

docwitch said...

I meant to say "beautifully realised". Sheesh, what a wanker.

K said...

That looks like the sort of weekend I frequently plan, but never actually achieve because of all the other stuff that needs to be done. (I might sometimes manage the bread and a bit of knitting, but not the rest of it.) And you have children! How do you do it?

Jen said...

Well, I thought I'd had a productive weekend, but am now hanging my head in slothful shame.

Amazing how four beautiful still life images can conjure up such a lovely picture of a weekend.

fifi said...

i just think the skirt would go VERY nicely with the blundstones I am about to get. lol.

and some striped tights: yeeehar!

zoesquid said...

...obviously not as much as you!
Gorgeous images

eurolush said...

Last weekend I accomplished...wine drinking? Tweezing? Napping? Some flossing? Snail monitoring.

This coming weekend will be spent wishing I was as productive as you are, staring at your blog photos, and coveting your artistic sensibilities.

Time well spent.

eurolush said...

Oh, and I love Mary Oliver.

Isabelle said...

My weekend involved quite a lot of gardening. And tidying up, vacuuming and such delights. Yours looks much much better.

(You don't strike me as a person who cannae be fashed doing things!)

Clementine's Shoes said...

Highly productive.
Me? I whittered it away cruising the internet while waiting to see if my son would settle himself to sleep. When (IF) he does I plan to head outside to do some gardening, because after two attempts at the waistband on my pants I think it's best the sewing machine and I take a little break from eachother.

(Your skirt looks ace by the way!)
