It's snow heavily here too this morning but thankfully it's thawing fast :-) I've been designing a post protector today and have blogged it if you want to know more :-)

I'm probably doing it right now! I love catching up on what everyone else is doing. It's been thawing here today and we can see half of our lawn again, but may have more snow tomorrow. The sun is shining and I am dog sitting for our daughter and son-in-law so I think a little walk is in order in case we get snowed in again tomorrow. Happy Harris Tweeting! and I like your good company.

I went for a walk with my dogs to the river rhine an I love it

Rosie said...

Snow here too, but bright sunshine as well! Jools looks like very good company indeed. My Sunday afternoon has been spent happily "playing" in my studio ... which is my idea of time well spent!

Combed out the dog yesterday while watching the Olympics...gave him a haircut today. Not my favorite...nor his...but now we'll go for a walk. THEN I get to listen to music and play with the sewing machine...Yeah!

I'm working away from home at night again...caring for a Norwegian lady, so she's chuffed to bits..Norway is doing really well.
This afternoon I walked down to the chickens with Dewi and collected 2 (as usual!) eggs,made cakes(with said eggs) and my husbands supper (before I left home)

Glad that you are doing some more Harris Tweets, they are gorgeous. My Sundays are now different to any other day, just part of a 365 day a year shift pattern.

Brief snow to be made the most of in North Wales this morning, followed by a bit of measuring and pottering about at the cottage we are renovating in the afternoon. My winter Olympics are recording to be watched at a later date.
Sounds like you've had lovely relaxing Sunday afternoon!
Best wishes

...it would be knitting by the fire whilst watching a good film and eating chocolate, sadly it was 8am school work, then decorating followed by the ironing...humph

JP said...

it depends whether it is winter or summer?!winter is definitely watching TV in front of the fire!!

I did some crochet and tormented the cat from time to time with wool.......... :O)))))))))))))


I hope I don't "come back" as a cat for my sins......

Mary said...

Love those tweeds. I spent the entire day at the sewing machine and now I can hardly move...oh, my back.

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Let's see...on a Sunday afternoon, it would have to be spent with my nose in a book and a cup of tea/coffee/hot chocolate at my side and a cat on my lap.

Usual Sunday is catching up with family, but this Sunday was extra special .... I went to see Rob Thomas performing at "A Day on the Green" ... which is singing on a dome covered stage in the grassed auditorium of a winery in Perth. Very relaxing (especially after copius amounts of wine) way to spend a Sunday afternoon, and what a man!, what a voice!, what a concert!. My husband reckons I've lost the plot today ... totally immersed in Rob Thomas songs playing all over the house. For those who don't know him, he's usually the lead singer of Matchbox 20 .... who are they, I hear you ask ... LOL!

I love those Harris Tweets.

PS I loved your flower loom shawl memory.

Ah! I knew it would be those!

I love the sound of the olympics on the tv and keeping track of them through my husband. I love the winter games and hate it when they are over.

Looks like a lovely Sunday. I like to go out with my husband and children on a Sunday if it's nice. We go to the beach or a loch or a nice walk somewhere and sometimes we go visiting. As I'm in the house all week and don't have a car I like to get out at the weekends : )
I left you a reply to your question about the felting ball. Re the Galleries in summer.....my pictures sell like hot cakes from all the beautiful little shops that stock my work. I'm very lucky to have such outlets but need to work flat out to supply them all. That's why I can make so many on a similar theme, they all go to different parts of the country.
