Busy Murk

76 clicks off 7000 views.  Hello to all who read!

It's been a bit of a murky week, alas.  So I have been hiding indoors and getting knitting finished.  Yep, crafty post ahead!

It didn't stop Madam being a bit naughty though:

I bought that packet of treats to trial with her but needed my bag to go out.  I put them on what WAS a dog-safe shelf before going out.  Came home to find an empty bag and a guilty dog.  Safe to say she likes them anyway.  Must remember the dog will climb on furniture to get to tasty things.

I did get a child's jumper done:

And Jo's birthday socks:

Today is woollens wash day, the kitchen floor has had its wash again (I really need to remember to change waste hoses!)  I do love the washing line when it all goes out though:

Lots of socks.

24 pegs to hold one lace shawl.  I'd already given this a wash this year and it would have been fine, if it hadn't slipped out of my bag during the conference weekend and gotten dragged through gritty mud.  Thank goodness it was only for a few feet.

It was nice yesterday though, so I got to trot down to Friday crafters and collect lichen for some natural dyeing I have planned.  I also snapped some shots of the latest flora:

I think this is an orchid of some sort.

This plant is lavender coloured and probably deemed a weed, but I like the colour.

This evening is Rags to Riches and a dear friend is kindly paying my entrance fee so I shall be taking the camera and thoroughly enjoying the evening.  It's a good 3 hours+ so it may be a day or two before updates, depending on how tired I am and how many photos I take.  The new camera is already at 1037 photo's and videos; not bad for two months.  Yes, a lot of those are "what was I aiming at?" and "too blurry!" but that's why I take so many.

I have treated myself to a tripod though, so I may well be found on future days sitting with a pack lunch on the beach taking photo's of far away birds.  Oh dear, I'm having a midlife crisis at not-even-30; not long before I get a Thermos of hot chocolate and an anorak!  (joke)  Nah, with me it will be camera, tripod, knitting and a pack lunch.  ;)

Right, got to peg out the towels that dried the floor.
