Pitter patter pitter patter pitter patter....and this time it's not the feet of little ones ....It's the rain on the window!!! When will it ever stop? I knew the garden was crying out for the rain but even that is now needing a rest.....I have a feeling the seeds we planted will be coming up further down stream. :-)
So? what have I been up to this week I hear you ask?
I bought one of these...Isn't it funny that this cold, wet weather makes you think of nice warming casseroles instead of salads?....and what came out of it was simply wonderful.
I bought a bag of this....who could resist that face eh? The resulting bread was really yummy too :-)
This wool arrived through the post...Donated for the fish and chip babies from my wonderful craft supplier Cari Crafts......many thanks to them for supporting the great cause.
And so far I've done this with it :-)
If you would like to get involved with knitting for this great cause then please follow this link and have a go. If you can't knit then please just give it a heads up on your blog to encourage others that can.
Saturday I had a call for a puppet to be used for a teaching job interview on Monday for our son's girlfriend Gina. Jo and I were having fun time together while the men went to see Shrewsbury play footy......AND they won and are now going up to Division one Wahooooooooooo.
Back to the puppet! I had a Mrs Oakley the farmer's wife puppet in stock so we set to to transform her into the Queen. Off came the mop cap she was wearing and I made her a crown with grey hair attached while Jo made her sparkly cape. What a fun hour we had.
Alas, although her interview went really well, the job was given to a much more experienced teacher. It was brilliant experience though and she will now go to her next interview with more confidence....and that one is this morning!!!! Please wish her luck.
If any of you saw my post yesterday you will see that Louise over at Sew Scrumptious is asking for 50 pairs of shorts for little boys to go out with the next parcel of little girl's dresses that are going out to Uganda so please....if you can sew would you follow the link and run her up a quick pair. If you are able to join in and make her a pair [or two] then please follow this link to see how....they are simply made but I'm sure they will do the job nicely. If you scroll down you will see the pic of the 5 pairs I made yesterday :-)
Thanks for calling by today. Please leave me a little hello comment before rushing off to join in the WOYWW fun over at Julia's blog.
