And never has he done a poor job of it. Quite the opposite in fact. So we are at the tail end of repairing the termite damage and repurposing (is that the right word?) our entry way.
Well, re-inventing it into something new, light, fresh, inviting. So far it has cost us AUD 1800 or so. Today we ordered a mirror for the wall facing the front door. And we bought the flooring. Tomorrow it will be installed. So this unexpected project is nearing completion.
As for me – I have completed a number of crochet projects that have been on the go for the last couple of months. Feeling very happy with the results. I seem to be on a hooking extravaganza at the moment.
A dragonfly tablecloth I made. A wee baby bonnet
with a matching 8 point star baby shawl and a rather large doiley
Last but certainly not least, an embroidered hanky with a deep pleated crochet edge. I say hanky, but I envisage it would be used for something other than blowing one’s nose on it!
I am pleased to report that contrary to expectation my hands are not crippled, neither are my fingers bent into crooked hooks and claws. Which is possibly why I have been on such a roll. Enjoying the creativity after a long drought.

(I’m a tad grumpy tonight as I seem to be missing some formatting tools in my tool bar – no justify tab or underline tab! Those WP gremlins have been at it again! My apologies for the untidy look. There is naught I can do about it. Not that I know of anyway. Grrrrr!)
The goal toward which all history tends is peace, not peace through the medium of war, not peace through a process of universal intimidation, not peace through a program of mutual impoverishment, not peace by any means that leaves the world too weak or too frightened to go on fighting, but peace pure and simple based on that will to peace which has animated the overwhelming majority of mankind through countless ages. This will to peace does not arise out of a cowardly desire to preserve one’s life and property, but out of conviction that the fullest development of the highest powers of men can be achieved only in a world of peace — Robert Maynard Hutchins (1899-1977)
