My little bit of this big World

A very British BBQ

 Yesterday we had our Jubilee BBQ, and as you can see from the sky, it was not a sunny day.
 Both my car and the house was dressed in red, white and blue, we had a Royal quiz, which we all helped with the answers, loads of food and wine. It did not rain, and we watched the palace concert on our big screen. Josh and Sammy had their burgers, and a game of football on the lawn. Cold but dry, after all we are British, so we are used to the weather doing it's own thing.
 I even had red, white and blue flowers, the blue are dried and dipped in paint.
 I have pulled out Sweet flowers, but I have not done anything as yet, just to busy.
 I am itching to knit with this wool, I have had it a couple for weeks, 
I have a couple of patterns to choose from,
Today is another day off, and it's raining, so a stay at home day, will start cross stitching soon, and then just three days for work, nice short week. I am hoping this week will be better in the office, it was very manic last week, busy the whole time.


  1. Do you belong to Ravelry . . . the online knitting / crochet community? You need to when you use that gorgeous re, white and blue yarn.

    The group I am most active in is having a national pride / Olympics swap in June . . . can't wait to see the results.

  2. I have used that wool, its so soft to knit with, looking forward to seeing what you whip up with it.

  3. What a great way to celebrate the Jubilee, even if the weather wasn't the best it could be!
    Love all your red, white and blue deco's. The wool looks lovely :o)

  4. Your Jubilee decor is just great--sounds like the entire country had a grand celebration :)
