No, not WIP-Wednesday, there is no time…

There’s a man in my attic… and he’s getting in my way.

WIP Wednesday is all to pot today. No photos, sorry. I’ve been busy making the headband to go with the stole for the mother of the bride. It needs to be with her by the 15th I found out today that the 15th is a Sunday. To be certain that she gets it, I shall need to have it in the post box this very night. So, I have cut it a wee bit short, cast it off, and it is soaking and about to be pinned out. Will it be dry before bed time? That’s the thing.

I seem to have had a lot of down time since the Show. Feeling very tired – and so much stuff getting in the way. Hoping for a quiet day tomorrow, and maybe some remedial knitting. Perhaps some quiet chicken-watching too.

Must dash – need to grab every last moment of drying time that I can! I hope that the man with the ladders is now out of the attic and I can make my way to the kitchen sink.

EDIT: It’s dry. And in an envelope. And it looks like this

All tied up

FWIW? I love it.

EDIT 2: There is a new WIP Wednesday list at http://tamisamis.blogspot.com/ which I shall try to link to each week

Bare Naked

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Ah, the windy highway. The last time we came down here our awning blew open… Thankfully it’s not even close to being that windy today. Phew. Not so good now that the tolls have been removed and there are HGVs to contend with. A bit macho, your Spanish lorry driver.. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

Rather a different day today but still warm, with 24 degrees expected by the time that we reach Ribamar. Those Happy Hour beers will be tempting. Shopped this morning before leaving, to find the Christmas Turron had arrived overnight. I confess; we spent an inordinate amount on Turron and chocolate. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020
