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.
Hope you feel tip top by tomorrow X I've also had tons of fresh fruit. Feel smugly healthyReplyDelete
Up with the Lark at 5:30 and feeling fit. Washing on the line and ready to dog walk, after a quick bloggy read.Delete
perhaps you were just due a slow down day, pretty tins I sometimes buy a tin because its pretty not just for the contents :-)ReplyDelete
I think you are right, I feel much better for doing lots of not very much. Looking forward to a full on day today.Delete
So sorry that you are not feeling great Pam. I swear it's this odd weather we're having as everyone I speak to feels the same.ReplyDelete
Take care of yourself-x-
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.Delete
Hope you're feeling better soon.ReplyDelete
Much better today thank you.Delete
Those tins have such lovely designs on them, I would have bought both too. Hope you enjoyed your fruit xxReplyDelete
I did, it was very refreshing. I like little tins but the ribbon of thread drew me in for these ones.Delete
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!ReplyDelete
I am going to enjoy reading back pages here.
Hello Holly and welcome, You will find a mixed bag of reading. I do not have a "theme" I have a flibbertigibbet mind and the posts reflect it.Delete
Hope you feel better soon. Love the tins and saw allsorts of uses for the plaid too.ReplyDelete
Much better now, thank you. I hope for a day getting the weeds out of as much garden as I am able.Delete
The thread braids would make a lovely trim wouldn't they! Hope you are feeling better.ReplyDelete
