Yesterday Ellen and I were invited to a friend's house for a tea party. Ellen was super excited as she has never before been invited to a Newfoundland tea party. I opted for flavoured coffee instead of tea. Ellen thought that was weird-drinking coffee at a tea party! We had 'the best' bread pudding with raisins (just out of the oven), crackers and cheese, and chocolates. It was fabulous! Ellen has the patience of Job himself. She stood by the table the whole time with the sweater on.
During the week I made another sideways machine knit sweater like the one I made for Alana last week only this one is red (100% wool). When Ellen and I arrived at our friend's house and discovered red walls we were delighted. We both love the colour red. I did wonder how the red sweater would be against a red background, but it turned out just fine.
While we are on a "red" trend, I thought it would be nice to post some pictures of the old Canadian National train cars we took at the CN Train Museum in Whitbourne a few years ago. Back then I wasn't blogging so didn't think to get any information. Maybe we can go back there this year and get the scoop, then repost. This time we'll bring Ellen!
