My first swap partner dropped out the week we were supposed to ship, so I was asked to hold onto my piece to then send on to her partner, who had gone very quite on the Instagram front. The second partner had said that she was going to be late, but had promised to ship by 7th November. (this was a month late) &th November came and went and after a further 10 days the Swap Momma said enough was enough! So I was given a third partner, who had sent her package weeks ago!
The gift is now en-route, and should be there by the middle of the week. I do hope she is not disappointed after all this time!
from Elaine in Liverpool and I am using it every day. It stores the wool and the blanket in progress perfectly!
Apparently the experience has not put me off completely, cos I've done it again!! Another Swap for the New Year!
I had also started knitting a scarf/shawl in this lovely lace weight yarn, it is so soft and fine it is lovely to work with. But I had done about 6 inches of the knitting and --- reality check ---- I will NEVER finish this! So I pulled it all down again and have started another Road Trip Shawl, which works up so quickly and are really useful items.
|its very fine!|
We still have to decorate a bedroom after the plaster had to be removed from one complete wall - long story - but then that is all the major jobs in the house caught up to date. Thank Goodness!
|Love a newly plastered wall!|
It is a town that we live in, but locals call it "the village" as it is a small town, but has so much history.
There was a French Market in the High Street, and Funfair and Ice Rink on the Market Square, Santa's Grotto in The Chichele College (this building dates back to the early 1400's)
Today Mr T will be playing with his new toys, and hopefully doing a bit of painting and I have three Christmas stockings to make for a friend.
|Appliqué prepped so sewing will commence.|
