See what I found.

The first week that I went to knit and natter Debs had a delivery. In one of the boxes were several of these.


There were only two designs, both  appealed to me.


Sewing kits, nothing remarkable.




Except for the thread plaits.
I did not see thread.
I saw cuffs and maybe a stand up collar on a white blouse, or perhaps pocket trims on a pair of jeans or a dress.

I bought both the tin designs and I am sure that the right project will come along, in the meantime I will have the tins to look at.

I have had a Bleh day, I woke after a good nights sleep feeling decidedly under par. Nothing specific, just a general "off" feeling, a bit light headed and woozy. It felt as though I had a night on the tiles last night,
 Tea and a walk with Ben, Dolly and Archie helped a little. 
A shopping trip did nothing to help but it had to be done.
I drank more tea and then some coffee, had a light lunch and walked the dogs again. 
A little knitting and some online shopping helped some more. 
I was given a potted hybrid tea rose called Mum in a million. It needs to be put in the ground soon, there is one bloom on it and it has a pronounced scent. That also helped.
I do feel much better now but not 100%, hopefully I will be back on form tomorrow.

I have 2 days of blogs to catch up with and comments to answer, I also have to look for a boxed pouch pattern.

Now I am going to have more tea, and perhaps something nice to nibble on. Nooooo nothing naughty, I have a fruit platter out, a selection of fresh fruits peeled and sliced and diced into mouth sized morsels. That way I can use a fork and not get my fingers sticky. I want to get on with the  sleeves on my jumper, I have finished the rib now and want to get them knitted up.

    1. You are also right Sheila, I was in Ammanford on Thursday and in the space of 2 hours we had 3 or 4 tropical downpours and scorching hot sun. I was in and out of my mac like a fiddlers elbow.

    1. I did, it was very refreshing. I like little tins but the ribbon of thread drew me in for these ones.

  6. Hi! I just found your blog, from Mean Queen's blog list. Your day sounds just like mine! I love knitting, my 2nd grade teacher taught me and I've been knitting since. I think knitting produces some special chemical in the brain, because it's just so relaxing! I make many baby sweaters and outfits for friends. Your tins are very cute--I would have bought them!
    I am going to enjoy reading back pages here.
