Cheerfulness and goodwill
make labor light.
I am back in action now after suffering the worst case of
sinus that I have ever had. No knitting all week! No sewing...just laying there doing
Bev and I had a Paper Bag Swap this month, and it was the
first one I'd ever done. What fun!
The rule was 1 fat quarter, 1 metre ric rac or ribbon, 5 buttons and you could add whatever
you liked. I gave Bev 2 fat quarters and all the other bits and look at the goodies she
made me. I feel so spoilt! I can't wait to use my knitting bag, bookmarks are
always handy as I am a reader, the wall hanging is just delightful and the pincushion will
certainly come in handy.
I had fun making Bev's gifts up too...
I managed to make several items ...
The little doll is called "Lovely Lucy" which I thought was very appropriate for
Bev as she has a daughter called Lucy. I decided to add an ankle bracelet
and felt hair to the pattern. A cup holder for Bev with a cup inside....Bev loves
her cuppa and also a little doll purse with...
I enjoyed doing the Paper bag swap and look forward to doing another one.
I had also managed to start on a pair of socks before I fell ill, and this is as far as
I have made it. Tonight I'm going to attack my knitting, because unfortunately
my housework has dropped back a bit. Thank goodness Pixie was home on the
day I was real sick because he did all the helpful bits like, pick children up from
school, dishes, keep the fire going. He is just priceless, a true treasure.
I had also made a start on some stitching as well, and have finished the stitching. This is going to be a shoe bag when it is made up.
Today I will catch up on my housework and I'm on target with what I need to do. I cooked
Pixie a lovely breakfast this morning...sort of a thank you for taking care of me this week.
The ironing beckons me and I need to buzz off now. Hoping you are all enjoying
this lovely weekend. Today is derby day between the Eagles and Dockers in football.
Go the Eagles!!!!
Kind regards, Anita.
