Whilst working on Stanley the Dog (which I have now finished), I came across my Mum's old tins of buttons - WOW. I love them. All sorts of colours, shapes and sizes. Brilliant. Now I just have to find some things to make to use some of them.
I laid them out on the table with all intentions of sorting them but they just got put back in the tins again.
Oh to have a workdesk that doesn't need tidying away all the time.I finished my mum's cardigan but then realised one sleeve was slightly larger than the other (who would notice that but the person who it is for!!!!!!!!) So it has to be undone again!
I'm still working on Rosie the pig but she now has a body, a snout, two legs and a nose. Wahooo - not long now.
My Knit of a friend
About a month ago, I taught my friend how to knit. She has never tried before. Two lessons on the park and one quick lesson in her kitchen and she has made a chicken, an elephant and some beautiful flowers. WOW. I must be one hell of a teacher (Or she's just a natural). I'm trying to persuade her to start her own blog but in the meantime here is her darling chicken.
Well done Mrs Bomberdill
On Saturday we go on holiday. Hoorah. However, Small's passport has expired so yesterday Smallest and I went to the passport office to sort out a new one for him. When I got there I had forgotton the photos (bearing in mind the passport office is over an hour away). What a wally.
Smallest passed the time (while waiting for Huffle to bring us the photos - bless him) in the fountains.
He had fun and the passport is winging its way to us now - phew - I need a holiday.
