Almost ready

I gave up on the Morning Surf wrap at 9:30 this morning, and washed and blocked it. It blocked to 74″ by 16″, which is just about the right length but 3 inches or so too narrow, really. It’s dry now and labelled and packed. Photos after the Show. Sadly, I found a large and glaring error as I unpinned the wrap. It’s no prize winner, but it’s all about making a good show, isn’t it? Not the winning of prizes…

I have two scarves ready for the Scarf class, and a pair of socks is joining the wrap in the 100 grams class. I managed to scrub up two so-so greetings cards, and a few dismal photographs – again, it’s just about filling the spaces really… For the “Other craft” section, I have nothing but skeins this year (last year I entered a hand-made stab-bound book.) That being so, I am now going to re-skein something vaguely interesting and doll it up a bit. Then, I think, we are ready to submit –  unless I take leave of my senses and begin to do some baking…

No. No fear, I am too tired for that.

Next year I will be more organised.

Van Nessa : Her Leak

Home from Melle, we set about cleaning the van in preparation for going out again. At the moment we are hoping to go out for at least one night every week in continuing efforts to break the cats in (or down!) Mr Snail was cleaning the bathroom. Although we haven’t used the shower we had… Continue reading Van Nessa : Her Leak
