Making and doing

I spent a good few hours making a wonderful pinafore dress and this is the timeline!
The pattern ironed and laid out to cut!
My daughters desk underneath is a bit covered in Graffti, but she has the only clear space in the house!
The cloth waiting to be ironed! with dripping hearts painted on the wall behind!
My pattern being cut out with the requisite cup of coffee sat in the middle, on a non pattern bit if you look!
Pieces pinnned out to cut!
took hours to do each bit but I wanted it right!
Putting the pieces together, think this was the seam up the skirt parts, loved the colours even as I made it :-)
The finished dress, I shall put up a better pic when I get one of me in it, at the momnet I am waiting for a meeting I need to go to, to wear it special!

Odd day

Odd sort of day,

haven't got my head round it yet.
bought some fab material last night and hope to make a nice pinafore with it for work, shy and quiet it isn't!
did a what sort of... are you and got this;

I'm terza rima, and I talk and smile.
Where others lock their rhymes and thoughts away
I let mine out, and chatter all the while.

I'm rarely on my own - a wasted day
Is any day that's spent without a friend,
With nothing much to do or hear or say.

I like to be with people, and depend
On company for being entertained;
Which seems a good solution, in the end.
What Poetry Form Are You?

which is fun but not a form I know!

but the description fits :-)

any way had a teacher dash out and get shipped to hospital, and I got the class!
had a nice stroll in the fresh air when 2 second years hit a fire alarm for fun and then listened to the loud discussion of it was him not me they sang to management!
I have to get my stuff for a meeting Wednesday and school is locked Monday and Tuesday, also have poorly car and it doesn't get done until Tuesday!
have to get gift for daughter to give BF and take home a sweet pea for the evening!
(looks round in puzzlement) I forgot to ring Thurso for my daughter off sick and haven't got any food in the house...
as I said odd day! But the material is fab!

New things for a New Year

Well I have been up to odd things and none of them yet mentioned much here, I have been following twitter and wanted to see how it was before commenting, and I can honestly say I love it! I miss it when I am off but that makes when I am on more relevant. I have seen things happen through twitter that doesn't appear in news for a hour or more which is odd, seeing breaking news you already knew! Also is allowing me to keep in contact with friends and make new ones :-) strange but fun. Also keeps me up to date for my fave yarn shop and I have been buying more :-( just shhhh don't tell Tom ;-)

Also have been drawn into the world of Bliphoto and set up my own account again over optimistic and this is only a few days old but I do hope to keep it up to date, it has been fun so far but I did upload too late one day and it turned up as the next days blip! shan't do that again, but must go for wander with camera at lunch and after work, just to see!

Also have been grazeing and what a fab idea, one day a week I get a lunch sent to me! it is easy and cheap and so far bar one late delivery hasn't been a big problem (famous last words! I hope not)BTW if you want your first or trial one free enter this code D9FVC1Z.

Also am trying pinterest, but as this hasn't yet sent me a log in details I shall have to report another day :-)

Thought I would share my latest library pic, taken through the mirror which allows me to see round corners and behind shelves!
You can see the shelves with no top shelf are sorted the others are to be done yet!
