I'm too old for this!
Or at the very least, the mind is willing,
but oh the body is weak.
Crawling about on the living room floor for an
entire afternoon pinning hexies onto a king-sized
bedsheet is not something for the faint of heart
as my aching knees, hips and thighs will attest!
And to add more angst to the equation I cannot
manage to get a decent picture to show you what I did!
However, this is the best I can do...
There will be more hexies created to add to this
which will mean more crawling about.
On the MUCH brighter side, the mailman earned his stripes and brought this yesterday. I was lucky enough to win one of Kim's most amazing creations and it came all the way to Canada from Australia. This is what I saw when I removed the outer wrapper....
Even the box and the wrapping was beautiful!
But the main event was inside! When I carefully undid the packaging I was rewarded with this ....
The prettiest Christmas stocking I have ever seen!
The sheer amount of detail in this is incredible and it most definitely will not only enjoy being on view during the Christmas season but all year round.
Thank you Kim - you're such a good friend and I will treasure this, and our friendship, ever more!
This week I managed to find a few more items for the 'Making Space' challenge that Becki is spearheading on her blog.
Let's see - there's a computer 'thingie' that's supposed to back up everything (but doesn't work any more); a hood from a coat I no longer own that was unearthed in the hall closet; 3 Christmas gift bags and 3 rolls of Christmas wrap. Oh, and 2 packages of Christmas cards. Before you say it, I know I could technically hold onto the wrap and the cards for next year but I know myself well enough to know I would put them away and forget I had them and buy more. Might as well bless someone else!
That's ten items, bringing my total up to 37.
- THESE are so cute - and the pattern comes in several different sizes.
- Have a scroll through the amazing work by THIS artist.
- THIS is a really sweet pillow design.
- There are some really cute free knitting patterns HERE.
