The Girl flies to London today, and grandma goes home tomorrow. It will be very quiet here!
FL has been working hard on staying awake during the day, but has developed a lumpy rash all over his face, neck and scalp. He still has a terrible cough. Off to the GP this afternoon.
And yesterday he forgot to stop the car to let the dog in at the end of the road. He rang me an hour later, when he remembered. I drove out to search for the dog, and while I was looking, a woman rang the house to say she had found him. He had gone about 5 miles over the fields, cross country. We had a rendezvous at the Village Hall, where she drew up in a very fancy 4x4 with a special doggy seatbelt installed in the back. Hero was most reluctant to come home - I think he was enjoying the view and comfy seat too much!
I knitted a hat - you saw that. And I have started my April socks. They are the 2LuvCrew pattern from the Knit Love Club of 2010. For The Girl.
I have also cut out my 1940's Eva Dress trousers (pattern 3322), ready to sew this weekend. That's them in the top picture - see how close I was to not having enough material?! They really are extremely wide!
I sent my Pendrell pattern to Ms Scruffy Badger, because I knew she would make better use of it than me.
In return, she sent me this fab vintage pattern and some lovely purple drapey fabric - how kind! Totally not necessary, but very much appreciated - woo hoo!
I have a plan...
