Celtic Summer (I finished the front green part of her dress!)
The Toy Shop - a very old UFO that I'm going to try and finish this month :) This is the front of the shop, a separate piece of fabric has one over one stitching that goes behind the windows. I finished the door and some vines on Monday night.
and a wee bit more on the RR -
This kid's brain just never stops! We're driving out of our place yesterday ...
"Mummy - did you know the lady next door is the same as the lady who framed your knitting?"
(knitting - hee hee, she does mean stitching ;))
"eh? are they? what do you mean?" (she had me stumped).
"They've got the same name."
(then I click) "Oh, yes they have - how did you know that?"
"I heard Kath call the framing lady Joy, and Daddy know's the lady next door is Joyce - see they're the same!".
Well ... not exactly the same ... but firstly, I had no idea she was listening so hard that she'd even notice Joy's name, and secondly - why on earth would she care or think of it anyway? LOL
... then two minutes later ...
"Mummy - did you know that when you blink your eyes close"
"So you shouldn't blink when you're driving because you won't be able to see where you're going."
ROTFLOL - I suppose she's right ... and I've got to wonder whether she was watching me very intently to make sure I wasn't blinking! LOL
Excitement of my Day, Week, Year ...
I ordered not one new lounge suite this morning, but TWO! We've been using an old brown one for the last 10 years, that I got when my grandfather died "to do us until we could afford a new one" ... well, we still can't afford a new one, but it is falling apart and I've been waiting for the next interest free, no deposit good deal to come along - and it did. One suite is a 2.5 seater, plus 2 seater - not quite big enough for us, so I ordered two, we will use one of the bigger couches for the front room and the three in the main lounge ... it's going to take five weeks to arrive, but I'm very excited! The fabric is a textured kind of thing, called Marine :)
Fun Sporting Administration
This weekend is our big registration weekend - so my head is full of everything I need to remember - forms, newsletter, people to run shifts etc etc ... I'll be glad when it's over. Not to mention it will seriously cut into my stitching time!
