Thank you so much for your cheery comments - I try and make my posts a bit funny from time to time so if that works it is great to hear. No more colour guesses though...I promise. Welcome to new followers too - I hope that you find something of interest here
Good things come at unexpected times don't you think?
Dear Annie of knitsofacto (and her beautiful photographs and delicious makes) sent these BEAUTIFULLY knitted gloves - my wrinkly old hands could not possibly do them justice so I asked Bronte (budding hand moh-dell) to wear them for these photographs. Even so I still cannot do them justice because you also need to FEEL them and note how soft they are and warm.
I have to say Annie that Bronte and her friends are very taken indeed with these gloves - the MUST HAVE for this season (and beyond)
Dear Annie sent these some time ago but because I had photographed them against the YELLOW table I have held back in posting this until today.
I could not help but notice that a certain shop is now selling reproduction versions of these little bird brooches. I did not check the price (which is usually my sole reason for going in to that particular establishment - so that I may huff and puff like a good 'un) but these are very easy to make and this is my current brooch for this week. Next week I will be moving on to my December brooch that I made ages ago here
PS: Bronte painted a wonderful Dalek on her nails at the weekend in order to watch Dr Who.
PPS: I am not an earnest Dr Who 'fan' (not since Patrick Troughton left.....) but I have joined in with more recent episodes and find them cleverly written. I liked the BBC drama about it - did anyone else spot Jean Marsh in the crowd scene? I like those clever throwbacks
PPPS: I notice that a charity shop in Chichester has a great vintage Dr Who display with stacks of Tom Baker annuals.
PPPPS: A friend's neighbour has an original R2D2 or do I mean K9. I have never seen Star Wars remember!
PPPPPS: That is all my Dr Who knowledge.
PPPPPPS: My friend Bryony had tea with Judi Dench again YESTERDAY and now tells me that the novelty has worn off....crikey..... fame is short lived nowadays.
PPPPPPPS: That is all the news from stardom for this week.
