Yet another week had flown by and I haven't posted during that time. When I started this blog I thought it would be easy to create a post on a regular basis but no, it is not. Time does not seem to allow it and I am so slow when I do write a post.I am also finding it difficult to read all the blogs I love to visit. Now that we have just about finished the house I was becoming concerned that I would have nothing to do and would end up filling my day for the sake of it with nothing productive. Since that thought crossed my mind things have changed. I have been asked to do a complete makeover on a house and garden before it goes on the market and Lucy has taken on a studio to work from which also needs a makeover.So it's been back to work for me. Needless to say the days have become very full and pass all to quick.
Since my last post I have managed to knit a few little hats for this though. They are very simple and don't take too long or much yarn. There is still time if anyone wants to try one.
I didn't have the correct bottle to model a hat on so I had to get this chicken to stand in so you can see how small they are.
A couple of months ago Zoe, Michele and I decided we would meet about once a month to spend some time together to work on craft projects. Our group has now increased to 5 which is great. It is a good way of getting specific things done, because there are no distractions. My friend Jayne had asked me to make some simple velvet pouches that she can fill them with chocolates to sell at her Christmas coffee morning, I managed to make a few today then I continued with my knitting.
When we returned home from holiday I had a parcel waiting for me. I couldn't think of anything I had ordered or swap I was waiting for. I was very surprised and have to admit had a lump in my throat when I opened it.
P was the person allocated to me in the one skein secret pal, I would send to her and she would send to someone else in the chain but not me. I was not able to reveal my identity to her until I sent the last gift. She sent me this beautiful vase, some felted tulips that she made with her daughter and a card with some very kind words. Thank you so much P I am very touched.
