A little adventure
Well it's that time of year again and the Royal Highland Show has come to town. I should really say it has come to Edinburgh, but that doesn't sound the same does it? My friend has two items in the handicrafts competition, so we are heading down on Saturday morning to see how she has done. I'm going to meet her tomorrow and then stay the night at her house before we head off very early Saturday morning. I think my friend is planning to be up before the birds. I can't wait to see all the stands and try to find some bargains. I want some silk for spinning and some paper making things, plus some more card stock.
I've not been doing any knitting for the past couple of weeks, but have been really in to card making. I've been embossing, glueing and sticking to my hearts content. I think my hubby has reached a stage of quiet despair with me. At least it's keeping me happy and I feel a lot less depressed than I did. I keep looking at my yarn and have no inclination to even pat it. Now that isn't me, I'm normally prowling the house if I have nothing in my hands. Maybe I'm just getting lazy and my brain is addling.
Last weekend was very busy and I did a heap of baking for the school summer fete. I then helped out and it was so warm that I thought I would melt. It was Father's day on the Sunday and by that afternoon I was shattered. I made a large cooked breakfast for everyone and it was nice for a change for us all to sit down and eat together. There's usually onl the four of us these days. Number one daughter spends all her time with her boyfriend and we hardly ever see her. She did make an effort and stay in though. We went to the local farmer's market and I bought some card making things things, and then we did a bit of shopping. I fell asleep on my husband at 4pm and woke up an hour later. I then had to think about making him a special meal which I did and then he had to go in to work for 11pm.
News Flash: Just had a phone call from my friend. She received a 4th place in the crocheted cushion section and a 1st place in the spinning section for a 2ply tweed yarn that looks like a forest pool. I'm so pleased for her,
