Its been so long I am not actually sure whether I have done anything or not!
Lets start with that I know I did these charity mice. DID is the operative word, I am not happy with them but it used up some short ends of wool and was for a good cause, Alzheimers. Here is a link to the page about it I think they are well past the target which is great. http://www.makeandcraft.com/knitted-mice-knitting-pattern/
These are pre facial feature mice, I did attempt it but they just looked worse so they went to join my mum’s ones and had their features done then.
I have acquired some more Beatrix Potter figures since last time.
I have progressed on Samuel but he still needs finishing. I am finding I have to be in the mood to do him other wise it goes wrong. On the same day I had about five attempts at putting the shoes together that didn’t work and sewed a hand to the end of a leg! Went back to it another day and both shoes together first attempt no problem. I have done inner ears for Tom Kitten as well but this was only as I was lacking car journey craft….Naughty will end up with too many things of the go again.
I have not yet finished any more SK books.
I have been busy with LIFE well more so WORK so seemingly have not done much else although I do have some secret stuff on the go.
I did go and buy material for this top as I thought I was going to get a day to myself to craft but ended up working so it still sits in the bag, never mind.
Not what I have chosen to do for my birthday but situations have deemed that I am spending the bulk of the day on my own. Now to some people this sounds not like a good day but I now have plans! However busy work is I AM NOT WORKING MY BIRTHDAY bearing in mind this is a Sunday it is not a work day but at the minute that doesn’t mean anything. I am having a craft and DVD day. If little guilt creeps in I may watch a stupid work update web thingy in between DVD’s but that is all the work relatedness there will be. The only other deviation from this may be a little baking. Its all still a month away but its decided its a me day.
For my early birthday treat I am off to a lace fair so I can have a look at some bits and pieces I am after in the hope that I actually get time to do some lace next year. Its really not going to happen this year unless I do some over the Christmas week (yes I am sorry but if the shops are putting out their displays we are marching towards it).
Not getting anything done has been bad but actually being able to update this had been some what therapeutic. In fact no having time to do something for me has been!
Ah my new toy, well assistant really. No the light not the part finished samuel!
Well until the next delayed installment See ya
