Month of the Blanket, part 1
This being the Month of the Blanket, I thought I ought to start work on the felted jumpers. So I spent all yesterday afternoon cutting a vast pile of jumpers into 'blanket pieces'. This pile is all that I managed to get done - I have another huge pile yet to be cut up. It's quite time consuming, but they look rather good all stacked up like this don't you think?
From an idea I saw on Mrs Locket's blog ages ago, I decided to play and make a little Christmas Tree, all ready for next December to hang on the tree. I'm pleased with the way it turned out, but it will be easier and quicker next time round I think. How bizarre that as spring has finally arrived here today, I'm thinking of Christmas.
Saturday Pudding actually happened for once as well. Chocolate mousse layered with fromage frais and toffee sauce, topped with grated chocolate and marshmallows. The boys and myself loved it. Mr Stressy did not.
He left most of it and the conversation went thus:-
Me - Oh. Didn't you like that.
Him - No.
Me - Don't mince your words dear.
Him - Well if I said I did like it, you might make it again and I don't want it again.
Mr Stressy has obviously not heard of tact.
