I have to confess that there's not much random in my life at the moment. Or everything is so random that I no longer notice. One of the two.
My first random thing is this:
Sorry about the wobbly camera - I was at the ready from three minutes out so I got rather tired and couldn't hold the camera still!!
Yes, my new washing machine plays a tune when it's finished the cycle. It also plays a little tune when you switch it on and another when you switch it off. It goes rather well with my telly that plays a tune when you take it off (and another when you put it on) stand-by. How long before the tune gets on my wick rather than making me smile?!
I'm sure I have some more random somewhere *going off to look*
Ah, yes, I knew I had some!
I found this saucer (it cost £2) and the old crochet hooks in a local charity shop. I needed a saucer to put under an orchid (and I can use it in my sewing room
if when it dies) and I couldn't walk away without bringing some of the crochet hooks with me. I'm not sure I'll ever use them but at 20p each I couldn't leave them behind...
We've been having some lovely skies over the last couple of weeks and I attempted to capture the colours and textures one afternoon. Not entirely successful but I do only have a 'point and shoot' camera...
|It's very, very hard to see but the moon is visible...|
I've finally got my Summersville squares ready and have found an alternative use for the lovely book wallet/ideas folder that Sarah made for me...
|It also makes a perfect embroidery case!|
I've started another Umaro scarf, this time for my sister-in-law:
|It looks so different from the one I finished last week|
And finally...I had ten minutes filled with more fun than you'd imagine earlier in the week when I decided I would try to take a photo of Archie catching a biscuit. It took me a while to work out the timing but I'm pretty pleased with what I managed.
It all started like this:
|Did she say 'biscuit'? Where's it gone?|
And progressed to this:
|In two of them I've managed to get the biscuit in shot as well as most of Archie - no mean feat!!|
I laughed so much my sides ached - hope I've managed to raise a smile or two!
P.S. I've finally (after about three months) managed to do some machine sewing so that thing I promised you way back in August may finally be happening. I'm not promising it's going to happen before the end of the month but happen it will!
