I’ve been busy crocheting for the last couple of months. For some reason my hands can tolerate it better again. And that’s great news for me as I’ve missed it. Another nursing home knee rug is ready for delivery – top right ↑
Top left an embroidered hanky with pre-punched holes for crocheting – I’ve had it lying around for some years. Project completed. And do you know what? I have tried to source more of these- no-one stocks them anymore ! Grrr.
A doiley three quarters completed. A very open pattern quick to make but requires care as any mistakes stick out like *you know what* !
Tess, our fur baby, has had a very stressful week. What with hammering, demolition and nail guns blasting off every day repairing the termite damage, she has become very clingy. I cannot move an inch but she is right there, glued by my side.
It was time for me to have a haircut. Just my usual six weekly trim. Dara does a great job of it.
TRH (The Retired Husband) has been busy every day with pulling out damaged bits of wood, removing termite mud (so MUCH of it) and beginning the process of remaking our entry way. It’s starting to look good. You may notice some holes in the floor. That’s where Exterminator K drilled holes to pour in some stuff to kill off what may or may not be left of our uninvited guests.
When I got home from the hardresser we sat down for a brunchy lunch and a nice glass of Jacob’s Creek Pinot Gris rosé. It was a beautiful soft pink rose colour. Earlier in the week I had bought these jackfruit dried chips out of curiosity. TRH hated them. Tess,out of desperation eventually ate one as nothing else was in the offing. I won’t be buying any more! And so we slide into the first weekend of autumn here. Slight breeze. Mid 30’s – a tad high for me but OK. Blue skies. Nice.
I hope you all have an awesome weekend 😮
