Saturday was dedicated to pottering; coffee, vintage shops, racing along the seafront and clambering on the battlements - just enjoying the Autumn sunshine and being out and about. It was the first time my new HEMA bag has been road tested as well; they kindly sent me a voucher for their online shop a while back (more on that later in the week), and this was one of the things I picked - it was a toss-up between this and one with amazing triangles, but the slogan on this one gave it the edge - I felt like it appealed to my crafty heart! I spent a pretty delicious evening with the new Mollie Makes, a bit of crochet and some Echinacea tea (I have the WORST cold at the moment), so all-in-all, a pretty good day!
I made a little video of the best bits; there are quite a lot of shaky segments, and the music is bog-standard plinky-plonk iMovie music (and Ali actually puts his thumb over the screen at one point...), but it's full of sunshine and made with love, and after all, isn't that what counts? (It looks better if you turn it up to HD, by the way!)
