Wow, it feels like ages since i have been on here. (And I see that it has been!)
I do have an excuse though; well several I guess. In the last two weeks I have bought a new car, gotten a new job and had a birthday (one of the big ones that end in 0 but don't tell anyone okay?)
So first things first; we have a new car ordered for me which I am soooo excited about. DH usually gets the new cars and then i get it when it has a few years and lots of kms on it and he gets the next new car. But my car is having a few problems so when the man of the house suggested we get a new one, I was not going to say no. So hopefully next week it will be sitting in my driveway.
As for the new job, I have been quietly looking for work but so far no luck. While I was in the wool shop two weeks ago buying the wool for my frilly scarf, I boldly asked the lady who owned the shop if she had work, and she said yes! Easy as that. So i worked one day last week on the day that she is shut, found out we liked each other so now I am working three days a week. It all happened so fast. So i have had two days in the shop this week, and am having so much fun.
I knitted another scarf last week but this is for the wool shop display, so it now hangs proudly with two others. Doesn't the white look so smart?
And yes, iIhad a birthday on Monday. I didn't want a party but have been doing things with friends; I went out for dinner on Weds night with my craft group, that was lovely (except for the migraine I had by the time i went home; I was so sick that night; sorry to everyone who came out to dinner for me; not sure how much good company I was).
Today I am having lunch with my friends here in town. I am looking forward to that too.
As just quickly; as for any sewing; that has not been too much of that happening, but I did get some lace that I have been waiting for so I can finish my christening gown. That came yesterday. I also have been playing with ideas of what to do with my little stitcheries that i started a little while ago. A friend has lent me a pattern with four more little designs, the perfect size, so I might now do those and add them to the five I have and make a nine square quilt. So while the hands have been a little idle, the mind has been going overtime. Hopefully I can show you something completed very soon.
