Whne my daughter was in her teens, she would irritate me greatly by saying that some thing or other was “doing me ‘ead in.”

Getting close to screaming point now. BUT… have turned the third corner and am heading down the home straight (it grafts on the final corner.) The end is in sight now, truly… just about 4 hours away, at a guess. Perhaps another couple of films will see it done. (Must say that I thoroughly enjoyed Smart People, and also the BBC drama about Morecombe and Wise — top notch stuff that was.)

Have thoroughly impressed myself with my stickability where this project is concerned. I think I deserve a gold star.

Actually, I believe it may be the telly that is doing me ‘ead in… I feel as though I have square eyes.

    Let me know when you need the extra blocking mats! :)   

    We can assess and discuss at Craft Club tonight — I think I shall need 9 but only have 8 here. More worrying is the issue of space. Where can I lay 9 mats out, safe from marauding felines?
