It seems that Wols are taking over - sorry Owls, blame Winnie the Pooh for renaming them. Last week in the charity shop it seemed everything we were donated was owl related - clothing, books, ornaments & painting - all from different people but all owl-themed.
Then I started the cushion for my sister - another owl. BTW I finished it at the weekend;
I rather like him - I think she will too.
Yesterday we headed as a trio (having deposited big son at a badminton tournament) to the Vintage Market on the Waterfront in Ipswich. It was a sunny morning, perfect for browsing and possibly buying. MrVV & Little Son wandered off quite quickly - they were more interested in the marina & food stalls than vintage & handmade items. I bumped into a couple of friends including Julie from Beach Bygones - who has done a lovely write up on the market. I actually started my christmas shopping - a ring similar to this one (which is for me) but in yellow for my sister;
and again more owls - for the same sister - so much easier when you only have one sibling rather than 6 to buy for!!
Can you guess what it is??
It's a fob watch on a neck chain - perfect for some who is (like me) always drowning her watch!!
Quite pleased that I've actually made a very small start on my festive shopping - I suppose at some point I might have to write a list. Might even have to give some thought to things that I might like to receive - now that sounds more fun - off to browse the net ;)
See you soon
