I've tried really hard today to get my little, knitted doll finished but I've had one of those days. Why we haven't got caller ID, I don't know. It started off with the now all too common, "I'm phoning you because you have a fault with your computer." My answer of "Tell me the name of your company," was shouted down by the person on the other end.
Next to follow, "Are you aware of the council's scheme for providing solar panels?"
The agency phoned asking about my availability this week. I thought that one was quite funny as they haven't found me any work in the last six weeks. I told them I was available every day. They won't phone again!
I answered a knock at the door and the double glazing salesman actually backed away. He must have heard me growling!
So my poor day project is almost finished but I had to take photos before it rained again and we lost the sun completely today. It's almost there. I have to sew on a few bows and give the little lamb a decent face and Bill can have another friend.
Excuse the ends and the murky, grainy photo. I promise that tomorrow I'll post a better one.
Today's listing is a mellow, yellow pincushion. It's a differnt colourway to the pink one I finished yesterday. You'll find it on Folksy
You may have noticed that my vintage tablecloth has been used today. It's been well loved in a previous home. I found it at my local charity shop. I was going to cut it into sections and use them for cushion covers but I can't bring myself to take a pair of scissors to it. For now I can put up with the small sections of wear and tear.
My Folksy July Jewel today is from Lynwood Crafts
This hand felted brooch is only 6 cm high but an incredible amount of work has gone into it. I love the tiny daisies, buttercups and yarrow. It lives up to its flower meadow name. Simply beautiful.
I going to finish sewing on arms now. I'll have to think of a name for her. Any suggestions? Be polite!
