I there dear Blogettes, I have finally got round to drawing the prize for my little give away.
And the winner is..................................................
Well done Helsie!!!!!!!! Could you please contact me with your address via the email and a little something will be winging its way to you in Australia!!!!
Last week I had this mad idea, that I would decorate our dining room, so I stripped off the wallpaper and then, had that feeling 'I wish I hadn't started this!' Do you get like that, well no going back now - so inbetween working I have been slapping the paint on, then there are curtains to make. I wanted a nice cosy by sunny theme because our house can be rather dark so this is the combo
I think it will be really nice when it is done, but getting to that point................well that is another matter. I am typing this with a wrist support on, because my hands are still sore and of course, I shouldn't decorate, or crochet or anything else for that matter, but I JUST CAN'T NOT DO ANYTHING!!!!!!!! My Doc has referred me to the Hand Clinic at the Hospital, so I am waiting for an appointment.
I have been doing a little crochet and it is great to be able to show you a teensy weensy something
This is a work-in-progress, two African Flower motifs in red and gold cotton. I plan to crochet them together and add a hangy uppy bit and then stuff it with Christmassy stuff, like cinnamon, and cloves, and hang them on the Christmas tree - I think this will look really pretty - may try a white and silver one too.
Talking of African Flower motifs I have played around with it and made a square shaped motif based on the African Flower (looks more along the lines of an African Pansy to me). Its literally "an experiment" but I think this is the next motif for me to make a blanket or something. I really think motifs are much easier to tackle when there are hand issues. Anyway, what do you think of these?
African Pansies! Cute aren't they? I think they have real PoTenTiaL!
What else has been happening around the Kimbles household? Pantomime rehearsals have started and this year myself and Little Kimbles will be in it - there is endless playing of songs and trying to learn the lyrics and dance moves - Mr K is a little tired of it already hehe!!!! But do you know the best part? Rehearsals are on a Sunday afternoon - and Mr K cooks a fabulous roasty dinner for when us tired singers and dancers arrive home - therefore I have to keep doing it until at least I am eighty!!!
Its so lovely to catch up with you all and actually have a little bit of crochet to show you!!!
Will post again soon with the tale of "The Shelf"
Speak soon xx
