Rambling On :: About This :: and :: That

Last week was very exciting and tiring.  Little Kimbles and I were in the local Pantomime, we were both in the Chorus and had an absolute hoot!!!   We did eight performances  over the week and each night the production seemed to crank up a gear, so that by Saturday night we were all on a complete high!  We sang and danced to songs from a variety of sources, from the theatre, such as Wicked and Les Miserables, films such as Toy Story 2 and Mary Poppins and pop songs from Abba and Elton John.  Apart from the odd occasion when the scenery didn't move quick enough before the curtains opened, and a few attacks of giggling when not supposed to - I think we did well!!!!!

As promised, here is a picture of me in one of my costume with the Daisy pinned on to it that I made with the Daisy Maker

As you can see, I think the Daisy added some interest to a rather dull costume!

My other costume was a little prettier though and was nice to wear. 

So this week we are back to normal, and looking forward to the spring

This is an Amryllis I was given for Christmas, its sprouting from everywhere!  Looking forward to seeing this come out.

In the meantime my favourite Yellow Roses are adorning the dining table

Bringing some sunshine into the dull dark days.

I have done some crocheting too,

 These two squares are now with Mrs Twins for the SIBOL project,

This is how far I have got with the African flower inspired squares. I think they may be turned into a cushion, I m just not feeling it for a blanket - but this may be revised in the future.  Instead I have decided to make a plain granny square blanket for my camping in the summer, so blues, peach and yellow will be the theme.  Karin made a super one with many colours in her blog, and I want to do something similar, something that I don't have to think about too much!  I have only made a couple of squares so far, so will show you when I have made more.

Well I have rambled on enough - I must say though, it is nice to get back to some rambling!

Speak soon xx


  1. Aaahh Kim, sounds you had a fantastic week, doing so many performances.

    Wishing you lots of succes with the granny blanket!

  2. Tha cloaky outfit looks fab, it suits you. You'd blend in very well here in Glastonbury :-D

  3. Good to see you back crocheting Kim. How are your hands going? Have you found a cure? I've put mine aside for the moment - much too hot to even pick it up. Hope I still remember how to do it when it's cool enough!

  4. Looks like a lot of fun was had by all.
    Glad to see that you are able to crochet again

  5. Hello Kim,
    Wow! you do look lovely! I agree it certainly does brighten the costume up. Your crocheting is as gorgeous as you! I just wish your hands were 100% so you could enjoy it more. The cushion will be very pretty. Karins blanket was nice, all the gorgeous colours in it. I'm sure yours will be too. Moms had lots of amyrllis never seen one sprouting like that. They are such a pretty plant. I had them alot at the flat where we lived when we got married. They use to do so well.
    I'm pleased you've had a ball with Kimbles.
    Settling down again now....
    Its been so very cold today, the magazine cheered me up. Karin says if you click on the picture and then click again it goes bigger. Yes you can read it then!
    Hugs and have a great weekend,
    Love suex
