’tis a very fragrant morning this day…

I am running v late and must get my skates on. Spinning is at P’s and my plan to cycle up there looks doomed, the weather has deteriorated again after a mild, still night.

The Vanilla Mansocks made it onto the circs last night and sock #1 was completed. I have about 2″ of leg on the second sock done. I shall take the sock with me today.

I decided the other day to finally protect my fibres and thus, in today’s post: 48 cedar wood balls in one parcel and a half kilo of lavender flowers in another. Along with the lavender are some dried petals (rose, calendula, safflower), just in case I ever actually make it into the utility room to make paper. I squeezed the parcel, wondering what was inside it. My nose told me very swiftly what it was. I think we can safely say that this lavender is the genuine article!

Right – I must get on with my day! I need to find some muslin from somewhere now. I shall be making lavender bags until the cows come home, I think.

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
