I told you the disasters had not stopped. I am usually a "glass half full" type of girl, but the latest run of disasters I think will continue for a while. Peter even managed to break the lid on his favourite teapot today. If you know Peter you would know that this is a big issue for him, he is never more than 2-3 mins away from a cup of tea and usually has a mug of tea attached to his right hand. He has had to resort to using my favourite Laura Ashley pale blue and white floral teapot, not his idea of what a teapot should be. For my part, it is maybe not wise to let him use my favourite teapot that I have had for 27 years. Will post a pic of it when I am able to again and if it survives Peter.

I have been working on this daizies quilt for over a year. I keep taking it out and doing a couple of blocks then putting it away again. I could not get it to come together. The problem was created because I was late for the class, disorganised and got my colours mixed up right from the start. I think perhaps I am starting to like it at last. If you squint your eyes up it looks a bit like one of those crochet granny blanckets.
Now I have finished the 36 centre blocks and just need to do about 44 more little daisies, to go round the edge of the quilt. This may take another year to get them done, never mind finishing off the whole quilt.
And my youngest and I would like a few chickens to lay us some eggs. We have even entered a raffle to win a hen and two black bantams, not sure if my fingers are crossed or not as if we win we will have to purchase a home for them if we win. Although my youngest says they will be OK in his bedroom!
As much as I love the A & P show. I really hate fun fairs, the smell, the crowds, the noise and the cost. Yuk. But kids love them, so you have to do the stand around and watch them thing. I could not get out of that area of the show fast enough. Could not even bring myself to take a pic to show you.

I was quite impressed with the whole set up, the restaurant was quite good too. A very good day out for all.

And if you want to see the pic of his fingers just let me know. He insisted I took one. Infact he even txted a snap to his work collegues, they did not recieve it. So some poor soul is wondering why they have a snap of a yukky finger.
