It's Amazing....

Just where you find evidence of tatting!!!

At the weekend I was in a Motorway Service Area.... coffee called.... (along with a comfort break)!!

We were 'browsing' the shop (as you do) and I came across this:

A REAL Tatty Soapdish!!!

No I didn't purchase it.... I'd have had to purchase all the other bits to go with it - crochet, bobbin lace etc (both of which can be seen in the 'edges' of the picture!!!)  And I'd've had to redo the bathroom to match it!!! VBG

It's 'orrible weather here today.... wall to wall rain!!  The traffic was at a standstill as well.... judging by the number of kids I didn't cross, some parents have decided that their 'little darlings' are made of sugar and will melt in the rain!!  No thought of the poor school lollipop lady standing getting wet for no reason!! LOL

Nothing to show you just yet on the tatty front.... been too busy undoing bits of THAT doily!!  Somebody made a mastike.... and forgotted to attach!!  So it's been undone and removed.... so I'm back to where I was on the last pic!! Rofl

So, chat soon

Guess What....

Guessed yet??  No???

Well.... Young Sir did something crazy over the weekend....



Yes!!! he climbed Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis in 2 days including travelling between them!!!

They are raising money for Coeliac UK!  For those that don't know, it's a disease whereby one cannot tolerate gluten etc.  The company produce a lot of the 'Free From' range that one finds in supermarkets here in the UK!!  the above link is their fundraising site....

Here he is at the top of Ben Nevis on Sunday!!

On a different front.... I showed you a pic of the doily a few days ago.... not progressed much since then, however I took a pic of the doily outside yesterday.... thought I'd share it with you!!

School's back today!!! Littlies start either morning or afternoon for the first 2 weeks!  Didn't cross many this morning but I know there are a few this afternoon.... younger siblings of ones I already cross!!

Yesterday we had instructions from Li'l Miss to take her to the park.... Grandpa had to make the swing go high!!!  Little Daredevil!! LOL

Anyway, chat again soon

The first of September... Almost the start of the 'season of mists and mellow fruitfulness'!! Well we have the mist!!

I'm going to put Maureen's mind at rest... Here in the uk the worst we get in tents are the occasional irritatingly bity insect that isn't dangerous and even more occasionally a domestic moggy!! That was in Ireland a number of years ago! Woke up with a kitten between us!!! Vbg

Anyways... Thought I'd show you these:

First up is the earwigs!! They need wires and the ends finishing off!! Do have another set in different colours on shuttles in this:

Cute isn't it?? Had to get it as Sir is a qualified and BT trained tefelone engine whatsit!! Rofl (or I would be if the ground wasn't wet!!)

Ok. Off shortly to see that tatty OG again... Because I can!!

Chat soon!
