A pinch and a punch

The first of (another) month.  Blimey 2/3 of 2011 gone already!

Good evening

How was the first day of September for you?

Mines followed its new routine of getting about slowly, asking for help for the simplest things and moving slower than a tortoise with its legs tied together!  I looked at the new photo hunt list this morning - I am going to have to be imaginative this month - I wonder if I'll find all 12 things from my sofa??

I've seen all of my sisters this week - they all now know where everything is in my kitchen to make tea and its been lovely to see them all. Baby sister came today and painted my toenails for me - very posh :) Another sister came yesterday bearing gifts;

Apparently she saw this and thought of me - can't think why ;)

She's also a car boot addict and was out over the weekend at several sales. She's a vinyl collector (her blog is here) and she's got a great eye for a bargain. She bought me these pretty cups & saucers;

The Irises on each one appear to be hand-painted as they are slightly different - going to look these up for I start playing with the glue & fabric!!

I've made a few things as well as several rounds of crochet. A pressie for a S&B group friend (need to get a teenager to drop this off tomorrow);


I thought I might as well make a few bits for the shop in town too - thought I'd try & see if eggcup pincushions would go down as well at the cups;


You'll have to excuse my photos - I can't manage the step into the conservatory at the moment so I have to take pics in the kitchen and the light there isn't as good :(

Right back to the sofa - I've promised to call my Mum.

Oh and wish me luck - MrVV & Little Son @ band tonight - so Big Son is Mummy minding!
