TWiP: Drinking and Knitting

This Week in Pictures

My September “A Month of Mugs” theme sure makes it look like I drink a lot of coffee, doesn’t it? Really, it’s usually just one cup!

So in addition to all of the coffee-drinking, we had a party on Saturday for our four-year-old twin friends’ birthday, and later in the week I knit my little heart out. Last night I bound off and wove in the ends on my Sea Stones cardigan, and I’d be wearing it today if it weren’t so warm and pleasant outside.

I’ll share a proper show-and-tell next week, when I’ve had a chance to take some nice pictures.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for my Project 365, plus some everyday-life images I posted on Instagram during the previous week. (FYI, my daily photo project this year has changing monthly themes. For September it’s simple: mugs. A month of my morning coffee and other delicious drinks.)

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…



365: Mugs 13/30 – There are very few things I actually enjoy about getting ready for a party, but dressing up the kitchen table in a vintage cloth is one of them. Why? Who knows. Let’s just go with it.


365: Mugs 14/30 – What’s for breakfast the day after a party? Why, brownies of course! (10 seconds after this picture was taken, I tried to take another with better focus, and spilled coffee all over myself. So this slightly-out-of-focus shot will have to do, LOL!)


365: Mugs 15/30 – I guess it’s time to take care of those party dishes I ignored yesterday…


365: Mugs 16/30 – A little light readig with my breakfast on this rainy morning.


365: Mugs 17/30 – I think it may be time to dispose of some of the more raggedy-looking sunflowers.



365: Mugs 18/30 – *yawn*


365: Mugs 19/30 – Just the button bands left to go!

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Flickr.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
