Just Filling in Time!

A little sneak peek at what I am working on - only the binding to be done!

My dearly beloved scissors turned up in the cutlery drawer - Oh, I think I told you that! Here they are, another pair engraved and the lovely fob 'be yourself' from Caryn!

Who else but Byron - fresh from the hairdresser and of course had to show his coiffure off to Nanny!
Hmmm, nice profile view!

Two of my friends, namely the above and his sister, went to Ikea yesterday - not the ideal place for children, but they wanted to visit the playroom, of course eat and drink in the cafe and then proceed to maraude the customers with their shopping trolleys. We were about to turn the corner to their home and a little voice piped up 'I hope they aren't at home!' - why? - 'then we get to sleep at your house, Nanny'! The Pied Piper and her children plus one are off to Garden City to see Santa today, then for a consult with an orthopod up that way! Is this spreading the goodwill too far?

The postie has brought me gifts from the USA again - from Darlene and Myra - oh, what fun! thank you both so much and I'm using a lot of self-discipline to leave them nicely in their packages.
I'm off to prepare for the onslaught - hope your days are all happy and quite organized - perhaps even with a little time for stitching!
