Back to work

The bird is known by his note,
the man by his words.
- English proverb.

Finally! I've gone back to work....yay! It was just great to get back to work and see everyone. All the chit chat and giggling, what a pleasure to go back to that. Lots of happy and positive people, what more could you ask for! While I was on holidays I did get to do a good quota of knitting and sewing done, and that was amongst keeping a particular boy occupied.

I was really pleased to get my cute little dragon finished. Here he is...

I have made a few changes, as you all know I have stacks of buttons......many more than Heather. lol. I wanted dragon's nose to stand out, so I used red thread to do the nose. If you love dragon as much as I do, the pattern came from Australian Homespun (No. 81) Vol 11.2). His name is Darrius. I wanted to use my scraps of material up, so I used what I had on hand. He is now living at the library and the kids will get to him tomorrow. I just love the nose..

Today at work Lovely Lyn said to me that she had 2 bags of material for me!!! eeeek! with excitement. I'm usually very well mannered but I almost tore her arms off in my quest to get to the bags. I felt like giving her a big kiss, instead I poked fun at her about how many cups she had laying around the place.

As mentioned I did do some stitching as well as knitting. My row of chickens is now complete and I will take some shots for show and tell next time. I have joined them together with some lovely will have to wait though. Just while I'm on a roll, Bev will be happy to know that I have finished our challenge of the month - something for a male!!

Now I'm off to do something female and that is get tea cooking. It is a challenge to cook for someone wearing braces so I'm on the lookout for new recipes to keep things fresh and interesting. A little while ago Cory asked me if I could say Írish wrist watch' really fast. Can you? Kind regards, Anita.
