Hard as it is to believe, some craftiness has returned to Moogsville.
Friday was my first proper day off, all to myself, for two months and to celebrate I cracked open the sewing machine!
Some sneaky peaks of something that went in the post on Saturday.
...and there's more...
The front piece for a little girl's cushion I've been asked to make. The order specified 'pink....very pink'.
What do you reckon? Pink enough?
I also received Michaela's St. Dunstan's blanket in the post. This is a 'round robin'-y blanket, whereby each knitter knits up a 50g ball's worth of knittage and then posts it on to the next knittist.
The two stripes before mine are so beautifully knitted and it took a lot of courage for me to start my contribution. So far so good though as I've done four whole rows....woohoo!
It's been so lovely, after the geeky madness of late, to get stuck into something slightly sane :)
I even made a start on clearing this:
Having caught the veg growing bug in a huge way, I am now planning on turning more of Moog's garden over to production. Which is why I'm aching so much today.
The majority of this has now gone. Fruit trees are to be trained up the wall (there's a seven foot concrete wall in there somewhere!) and another raised bed will be artfully constructed by Moogsdad. Eat your heart out Hugh :)
In other news.....
For those of you already signed up to the Geek League - fear not!
I love the fact that an obscure and quite bonkers gauntlet can be thrown down to you lovely bloggers and you can be relied upon to pick it up and run with it!
At the last count 38 votes had been cast. 34 'Yes please' votes and 4 'Wot's'!! Not a single 'No way' or 'Couldn't care less'. Marvellous :)
Looks like a League of Geekiness will commence very soon. I just need to iron out what on Earth it's going to entail as I'm not sure even I know what I'm on about!
I have a feeling it may be rather an informal affair, with points awarded on a somewhat ad hoc and arbitrary basis.....mainly 'cos my brain starts to hurt when I consider creating categories, actions and scores....but don't worry as I will be keeping score and there will be a Top Geek award in due course! (Plus I've been handing points out willy nilly for the past week and I dare not ask for them back!!)
....and now for the weather....
The recent improvement in weather conditions across much of the southern part of the UK can be solely attributed to the fact that I now have new winter boots.
So happy that I found boots to fit my 'well-built' legs :) Just love wearing boots and a skirt. Love love love it!
Now too hot to wear them. I love how predictable our weather is.
Buy sunscreen and it'll rain.
Buy new boots and there'll be a mini heatwave.
