Hello everyone ,hope you are all having a good time. I have had a very excellent weekend, have finally put up the Christmas decorations, been out to see a friend’s very good band play and spent all of Sunday binge watching a new and very exciting series on Netflix while finishing my Suffolk Puff wreath.
I came across this series by accident just from a mention in the newspaper we get free on the bus and am so glad I did as it has been very good. It is called Medici-Masters of Florence and is full of the most gorgeous period costume and lots of very tense drama.
I do love a man in period costume, they just look so wonderful and the women’s costume was amazingly beautiful. Sadly could not find many pictures so you will just have to watch it yourselves.
Watching it has been made all the more special by the fact that Mum and I visited Florence a couple of years ago so have seen lots of the paintings, buildings and art of the time. It brought back very happy memories and the way that Florence is portrayed in the series is very good, such beautiful scenery.
All this lovely entertainment made light work of finishing the wreath, which I am very pleased with.I bought the metal ring frame from Harrogate and covered it in red felt and ribbon before sewing the puffs to it. I have used up nearly all of my ribbon roses doing this so will have to order some more.
I am now making more puffs in an attempt to make a Suffolk Puff Christmas tree, I do still have a couple more ornaments to make at the weekend but this is nice evening in front of the telly creating.
Hope you have a lovely week ahead, this is the last week of term for me so am looking forward to Friday after which I will not have to get up quite so early, not a fan of going out and coming home in the dark!
Take care and thanks for visiting.
