Vanessa is missing. My girl was playing with her on Monday, she thinks she left her in our kitchen and now she’s gone…along with the little pink bag she was being kept in.
An extensive search of the house and garden and the homes of the girl’s friends has turned up nothing. She has simply vanished. What worries us is this: did someone enter our kitchen and take the bag thinking there was a purse in it? This is why I always lock our doors – in case such a thing should happpen – but hubby isn’t quite so paranoid. Who knows? But the fact remains is that the little monster I made for my girl is missing. I hope she turns up soon as my daughter was very upset.
Anyway, this is the latest mini drama to befall our home. That and the fact I have been unable to finish Vanessa’s mother monster as my sewing machine decided it had had enough and refused to work properly. Despite trying to fix the tension, it just decided it had had enough of sewing thank you very much so go away. I will try again today. Does this just happen with old sewing machines (as my two are)? Or do all sewing machines have a mind of their own?
I am on hat 2 of my knit-a-hat-for-everyone project. Basically it started like this: my two crafty friends and I like to make our children and each other a small gift for Christmas. Last year, I was given a lovely toilet bag and handmade chocolates. I made them knitted tea cosies. Anyway, this year I asked my two crafty friends what would like for Christmas this year? And the reply was a knitted hat each from a pattern from Jane Brocket’s The Gentle Art of Knitting. I’ve knitted one and am halfway through the second. They are really nice hats, so I’ve decided to knit the kids one each too and myself. Not sure if hubby wants one too, he’s not really a hat wearer. However, if this winter is like last winter (ie FREEZING) then I am sure he’ll want one!!
DarkIsle 3 is nearing completion…well my first draft is. Last week, during my lunch hour at work, I sat and planned out the final chapters of the book. It should tie up a few loose ends. It’s getting exciting. Am away to write!
