Bits and pieces.

Not much progress to show – I had my flu jab yesterday and couldn’t stitch last night as my arm was pretty sore when I moved.

I’ve been collecting some lace weight wool to try to make a start on some small gift items.

If only I had time – I’m going to be working full time for the next two weeks – I NEVER work full time!!

This is a quick question and I’m hoping someone has the answer to it.  In this year’s Ornament Issue there is a design by Monsterbubbles which is Day Four of the Twelve Days of Christmas and in last year’s there is Day One.  PLEASE can someone tell me where I can find Days Two and Three.

I tried e-mailing the designer but didn’t receive a reply so I’m hoping someone may have seen them somewhere – or know why I can’t find them.

In answer to the question about the acorn lid design in my post on Monday.  It is a Cross Eyed Cricket chart which I no longer have so I couldn’t find the name of it.  Thanks for the lovely comments.

Having bought my first hibiscus last weekend, I then bought another last night to give to to my elderly aunt who I’m going to visit this afternoon.

When I was walking round Marks and Spencer with it in my trolley, a lady stopped me to admire it and we had a lovely chat.  She was from Malaysia and she told me that it was the national flower of that country, which was her home.

Thanks for popping in today, I hope you can visit again tomorrow for Scotland on a Saturday.

  1. Your banner is looking great so far. The CC piece is called Infant Oaks – I tracked it down – if anyone is interested. According to their website, it’s still available.

    Lovely wool, I like the variegated. Looking forward to seeing how you’re going to use it.

  2. What lovely yarn!

    I doubt that the Day Two and Three ornaments exist, quite frankly, but I may be wrong.

  3. Your Autumn banner is looking beautiful!

    Days 1 and 4 of Christmas are wonderful designs. Maybe she designing them out of order, but I really have no idea.

  4. I know what you mean about the fly jab I had mine on Tuesday and my arm still aches a little now and I know it’s going to happen so I always get it in my left arm.

    Love the colours in the top skein of yarn

  5. Ooo, I hate injections in the arm. I’d much rather have the hip!

    I’m interested to know the answer about # 2 & 3 too.
