Yesterday was a bit of a "grey" post, due to my feeling unaccountably jittery. Today though is friday and I am feeling a bit more frivolous and optimistic. So much so that I am posting before I start my work! The decadence!
These are two things I allowed myself to grab while (whilst?) thrifting in BC on my hoilidays. I was very exited when I saw the leaf teapot for $4.00 at the cat rescue charity shop, despite the fact that I am now beginning to resemble a crazy tea pot collecting lady. The wee pyrex, though a bit grimy, was also a great find for the pattern. I had never the seen sweet leafy pattern before. Victoria was a thrift pyrex lovers dream! So many things...
I have not been very crafty at all these days what with vacations and a happily busy work schedule, but I did whip off this apron one night in a frenzy of scissors and thread. It was really cheating as I merely traced a dollar stor apron, and used it's edge tape on this bedsheet version, with a pocket from an old pyjama top in the middle. I do like to wear it while (whilst?) I cook and I can finally see what all the apron fuss is about. It makes me feel very efficient and organised. I don't actually like to take it off at all.
And finally, knitting class! We had a coerced knitting class yesterday after much begging from the girls. I had not been in the mood and felt tired after getting home on my bike, but after I got settled we decided 10 minutes would be sufficient. Boy was I impressed! After a couple of weeks of hollering about not being able to do it, they just sat down and knit, just like that! It was so cool to see their hands just knowing what to do. One girl is Portuguese and her mum taught her the way she had learned in school as a girl, with the yarn looped around her neck. I can't quite even follow how she does it, but it works really well and I am quite pleased with them!
Happy weekend everybody!
My mum is home at long last from 10 months in Mexico and is coming to vist this weekend- YAY!!! I haven't seen her since Christmas.
