So as we approach another weekend (hurrah) I finally have a moment to update you on last weekend.

Saturday was one of those days where you have a long lie and then manage to put something in the slow cooker before heading out for the day.  I had a joint of pork, so I put a spice rub on it, braised it...

And then stuck it in the slow cooker with some lager

And then left it to do its work.  I sometimes find Pork just a bit too fatty so I made sure to remove all the fat before I put it in.

We then took the dog for a walk along Glasgow Green

You can just feel Spring time in the air now.  Here's the pup and the boyfriend outside the People's Palace.

I then nipped off to the hairdressers and to Mandors to add to my fabric stash 

before heading home to check on that pork.

I whipped up a quick coleslaw and then had this yummy mess to munch on.  Pulled pork tacos, with corn, avocado, sour cream, cheese, salsa and that coleslaw!

Man it was good.

So then we had a snuggle on the sofa and watched Saturday night TV

Sunday was spent in the sewing room.  After the success of finishing my first Tilly Mathilde blouse I set about making another one.

So I used the spotty fabric I bought yesterday.

I had plenty interfacing left over

I love these cute pins!  They came free on a magazine

Pleats in!

I got a full day at it.  and whipped it all up to the point of the sleeves but then disaster!  I tried it on and it's too small!  I'd forgot that the adjustment I'd made on the last one was to let it out a bit, not in.  Oh well - all the more reason to go on a diet.  I'm going to finish it anyway and then see if I can add a section to it to make it larger.  

I'd bought buttons and everything.

This weekend I'm going to tackle a baby quilt for my best friend who is due her first next month

But all in all a pretty darn good weekend!
