Up and at ’em

I was up and about early this morning – finally giving in and putting my week old wet washing in the dryer. The bedding went on the line yesterday but the rest was still hanging around.

Thence to the PO to mail off a swap postcard and buy more stamps for similar. While I was there I bought a wonderful  greetings card with an old map of Orkney and Shetland on it. Then it was off to the shop and a search for some suet.

Today I shall be continuing to wind yarn, looking for patchwork fabric, and trying to get my plying done.  I shall also be making a leek puddin’.

13 balls of yarn would last night and almost halfway there – there is a long way to go yet!

I just promised to make a pair of socks for Fenny. A possibly rash gesture on my part. 🙂

We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle
