A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
It's TUSAL time, the Totally Useless SAL where we all show our ORTS and link-up on Daffycat's blog.
Here is my TUSAL jar with two of my current projects:
That's actually a better colour likeness for the top fabric than previous photos.
I was hoping to have a Happy Dance to share with you but alas, not today. There is only the beading to do on M is for Mary. I was sitting down for an afternoon's beading today when the phone went. You know what it's going to be when they say "Hello, it's Mrs M here, he's OK but...". Yes, my son had injured himself at school. But not the Small Boy which you would expect, it was the Large Boy. His leg got in the way of a stone being chipped up when they were all running around and there was blood and plenty of it. Luckily hubby was here to go and collect him because it's a three mile limp home if Mum has to go.
I did manage to bead the bottom of the skirt in between washing the trousers and administering to the wounded. A clean plaster and a chocolate muffin were applied. One to the leg and the other to the mouth! Then the Small Boy came home and the beads had to go away.
I also realised that I was working away on the wrong project. I picked up Happy Hallowe'en instead of the Stitcher's Alphabet which needs to be ready for The Alphabet Club this Saturday. Ooops. Never mind, I can start that tomorrow after another attempt at beading M.
Finally, it's a short post today so I will just remind people that I will be hosting an Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop on Good Friday. If you'd like to be a participant just leave a comment.
