Leave the flurry to the masses:
Take your time and shine your glasses.
-Old Irish verse
Pretty much at this time of the year, I’m not sure if I’m winding up or winding down. Lol There’s is the excitement of preparing for Christmas, the knowledge that I have only four more working days before I go on summer break, buying and making gifts for my special people.....these are all the wind ups for me, I would think, but I also feel like I’m winding down with the above as well. Us girls are a funny species.
At this exciting time of year, I lovingly hang our Christmas wall quilt above my gorgeous old tea trolley laden with handmade Christmas dolls.
With sentiment running wild here, Cath Walker made this little cutie for me several years ago. I still put this little beauty out every year Cath, I think of you. Lol.
For a something a bit different this year, I found a groovy cup warmer that touched my sense of humour. No one and nothing is really safe from me. This is a free pattern and if you want to have a go at knitting it, click here.
During the week my son Brandon text me to say have a squiz at the sky......Mother Nature putting on a display. No it wasn’t the jet line left from any sort of air transport, the cloud was thicker by far for that. If you held your fingers about 4 inches apart and pointed them to the sky, that’s how thick this straight cloud was.
Pretty cool I thought!
In a previous post I showed you the Peppa pig that I had knitted and she is much bigger than George turned out, but cute just the same. Clicking here will get you the pattern.
I’ve decided that my main project over the holidays will be getting ahead with the winter stock for the markets. I know, it’s summer, it’s hot....but a knitting addict doesn’t stop for the weather. Lol...well not this one any way (nor does Heather the feather). Gosh, if I had to stop knitting because it was hot....well.....I’d turn into a neurotic raccoon!!!!
I’ve started with boys booties and beanies. Heather and I discovered that we just could not keep up with the demand for boys knitted items. So I’m getting ahead this time. It was our first season selling things at the markets, so we were really feeling our way around, just as we’re doing through the summer months right now.
This ratbag is in trouble again. Another 2 bushes have been squashed and mysteriously disappeared from the yard. I think there’s more to that story.
Well folks, I’m about to attack some housework, not that I want to. I’m still waiting for that lazy magic fairy to get here and do it Where is she? Lol
Enjoy your Sunday and stay happy.
