Ron has gone off to meet his brother in town, their monthly meeting so it's nice and peaceful here at Lindeck Lodge! Trouble is I have been on the Wool Warehouse site and spent some pennies. DS2 has asked me to crochet a face cloth which resembles a backgammon board. So of course I don't have the right colours in the cotton (well I do but it's all different types!) and then decided whilst I was there I may as well get some other colours to re-do the monkey I started yesterday.............
Now some of you may remember DS2 - he who wanted me to crochet a pig for a new venture his girlfriend and her friend had gone into. The Fat Butcher. Now, Mr L and I have eaten at said establishment and I have to say it was not half bad. Sharing platter we had.
Anyway he found a picture of a crocheted pig on the internet and said "this is what I want for the launch party of said Fat Butcher" Urgggg I cried at first. I admit it did grow on me somewhat. I have no idea who crocheted it in the first place or who to credit for it. There was no pattern so I just copied the picture. Here is the finished article. Apparently it went down really well - not literally, of course, cos that would be silly!
So watch this space for the backgammon flannel!!!!!
Now for my advent pressie. Tash, you know me so well. I just LOVE Angels.
This is a gorgeous Trumpeting Angel stamp and a Bookmark Calendar. Never seen one of these before but I will use it in my 2014 journal which I am going to do to commemorate my 60th birthday next month.
I may even bore the pants of you lot with a blog journal too. I am determined to do a photo a day anyway. Well that's the plan!
Off to make a cuppa, finish Mouse Mittens and put the heating on cos my feet are cold (even in my new red sheepskin lined slippers).
Thanks for stopping by.
