Another week has just flown past, missed it again!
After recovering from all the acci's last week, we then went into the Open Weekend at Tyseley Steam. I managed to get into the gardens and tidy them up a bit - weed and strim - but could not make it over to the opening. PJ donned a flat hat worn low over his forehead and manned the car park for both days. Now we are recovering!!!
My desk this week has the remnants of trials using some of my new purchases.
We had several errands to run prior to the weekend and a couple were on the same site as Hobbycraft.... had to pop in ....... then, halfway through my selecting, PJ had a phonecall from the Drs (an earlier appointment to have his stitches out was available) so we checked out and set off. Wasn't till I arrived home that I checked the bill ..... didn't have time at the shop to sort through the basket and put back what I didn't really NEED so ...... ooops!
The dies were ones that I wanted, I don't have any squares ...... the jigsaw was a maybe ...... the ink was also a maybe ...... then the ...... well, you get the picture!
The corner rounder punch was perhaps the only thing I would really have bought, along with some other steampunk dies (put into my steampunk box) but when you're in a rush ......
I do seem to be the only one that is bothered by the amount of money spent as PJ did point out that I haven't had a good spend up for ages! (Bless his cotton socks!)
I have been trying out different patterns on my baby blankets and last night found an interesting site, Little Woollie, which offered a pattern that was just tooo tempting to miss.
I have managed the repeat a couple of times, it's called 'Catherine Wheel' and not too difficult for me.
I am now hoping I have enough green wool to complete the blanket.
Thanks again to Jan for hosting the get together - glad that Mr Linky is now behaving ....
Have a good week.
