What a weekend, I don’t think I’ve sat down since Friday evening! We’re redecorating at the moment and needed to get the boys room finished as we had friends from Leicester who were going to stay, (but are coming next weekend now) and Jim officially starts his new job today as a bicycle mechanic, so everything in there needed finishing.
I must admit, it was worth all the waiting…
When I wasn’t knee deep in paint, I was knee deep in…well…paint!
I was silly, again and agreed to help paint people’s faces before the Midsummer Parade, despite the fact that I had never, ever, painted faces before, so quickly practised on the kids (mine that is)
Jasmine as the “Seaside”
and Mavis as “Sunset on a Desert Island”
hee hee, it was good fun and kept me busy for a few hours!
Though I must add, the quality is rubbish, it seems such a shame to have such a huge, brilliant event where so many people have worked so hard…and have rubbish pictures to show.
Hopefully Mike’s will be better!
As, for knitting, there’s still nothing to report, I’m waiting for the start of the Tour de France to unleash the needles! As I’m attempting the Polka Dot sweater again, King of the Mountains, which is about learning new skills, I am attempting fine lace, which admittedly I am rubbish at! So I may do the Muir which is a nice, easy pattern.
I did find this handy website for crocheters…
have a good week folks.
