Slow progress

I have made slow progress today – on everything. Far from reaching the toe on the Merope sock, I find that it is bedtime just as I reach the end of the gusset. There’s a long way to go (I have long feet). So, I am short on the sock, barely begun on the Alhambra, and totally unprepared for Wednesday’s kids’ activity session (why, oh why did I defer the prep until tomorrow???) The only sense of achievement today came from plying off the Inferno roving – and that was a cheat, because I am only about one third of the way there. Well, maybe more than that – because I have spun one lot of roving, and have another to go. I just didn’t get all of the first batch plyed, thinking that I would spin onto the end of what was left on the bobbins. So I didn’t get my bobbins emptied either – and that was the whole point of sitting down to spin today!

And you should see the state of the house. Two dogs and two cats moulting – thank heaven Nell is a short hair!

I need to comb Griff out tomorrow, to get some dog fur for Show and Tell on Wednesday. Let’s hope nobody asks me to actually spin some – I haven’t tried that particular adventure yet.

I’m still in love with my Flambé 🙂

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
