Bettie's Pullover has been my stitchy focus and I have reached the section headed "Finishing" - woo hoo!
This weekend I have been sewing up my Pyjama Party set... but I can't show you that until the Big Reveal on the 28th when all the Party People have a rave together - exciting!

This is a great deal for us. FL is certainly not fit for such physical work and I wouldn't know where to begin. It is not good for the land to lie fallow for too long and we can't afford to contract out the whole cycle of ploughing / sowing / harvesting. We lost a lot of money the last time we tried.
However, this means we have to be more creative when walking the dog, to find new routes avoiding 18-inch-deep ruts and opportunities to roll in slime and pick up ticks. Nice!
FL has a horrible cough and took to his bed yesterday, but may have perked up a bit today.
The Girl's exams start this week.
Did I tell you she has decided to move to London for 6th Form?
And we have mallard ducks nesting down by the pond!
Gotta go - Bettie needs my attention!
