All you have to do
I’m getting pretty excited now about the holidays being just days away!!! Another 3 and a half working days and it’s holiday time for me. Over the holidays my plans are:
Weeding the garden
Sewing summer items for the markets
Washing all the curtains
Cleaning out the chook house
Catching up with friends
Sounds like great fun to me!
I have two stories to tell today.....a funny story (with evidence) and a sad story. The first story is that I went into the craft shop yesterday to buy circular needles and while I was at the counter with the shop owner, a lady I know came rushing out from the back of the shop and told me to “stay right there, I’ll be back”
When Elizabeth came back she was wielding a strange looking object and a big bag of wool!! Lol
The strange looking object turns out to be a hand held spinning top/wheel. I am yet to look up and find out all about it.
The second half to this story......with evidence is.....
Here is Miss Muffet (Heather the feather) straight into the bag of wool to investigate. I mean.......really!!!! I didn’t go near her, I was too scared.
If there is a ball of wool that has a tangle in it, Heather just has to get that knot out of it and roll it up properly!!! Apparently my sources tell me she can’t even leave a tangled up fishing net on the beach alone. lol
I mean.....I bet that was when her kids were really small and they had to stay on the beach all night, freezing cold and starving until Heather untangled that fishing net.
Now for the sad story. I went down the back yard on Thursday to feed the chooks and something caught my eye.....poor old Chester has been in a rooster fight and was beat up pretty bad. I'll just let you know that the next two photo's are the recovery photo's, I wouldn't share the bad ones.
The good news is Chester is recovering nicely.
The next 4 photos are from the show. A lovely table runner in cathedral patchwork.....
A cute mini wall hanging.
A gorgeous old milk jug.
And what am I knitting now? Well I’ve decided that it is about time I knitted myself something this year. I had started a black cardi for myself but that is still tucked away. This cute little top is a summer top done in a lace pattern. The yarn has been sent all the way from Italy. .
The yarn reminds me of the nylon ribbon we get here, but it is very very soft and only about 4mm wide.
I’m hearing that washing machine calling out to me now, so I’d better get cracking with the washing. It looks like a reasonable day outside, so maybe I’ll get to attack some weeds already.
You gals all enjoy your lovely weekend and be happy.
