Monday Thoughts

Hi there every one ,the start of another week ,Or as we used to say at work, another day ,another dollop!!Its raining again ,so I guess the drought is over ,Over in some parts of the States they have snow ,wonder if it will make its way over here ,it quite often does ,perish the thought ,excuse the pun ,Well its valentines day tomorrow ,have you all bought your valentines cards for your loved ones ?When Sharons(my Daughter)  boys were little ,I always received one from the brothers Grimm !The other thing this week ,I have to go to the dentist ,for the crown to be renewed ,on Friday ,they have given me an hour long appointment ,and to say I'm dreading it ,would be an understatement ,so if I whinge about it  between then and now ignore me !I just keep telling myself this time next week, it will all be over ,and in a hundred years from now it wont matter .

I finally finished the cardi ,I've been making since August ,though I have done other stuff in between ,Claudia emailed me a lovely pattern , for a hat ,so that will be my next venture .

As a rather nice addition to my Mums story ,that I told a couple of weeks ago ,where we lived in the cottage where I was born ,there was a fire grate,with oven attached and a cupboard situated next to the fireplace  ,my Mum kept her treasures in there ,one night they were woken up ,by the sound of the baby coughing (me)somehow the cupboard had caught fire .With result my Mum lost alot of things ,throughout her life she mentioned a lovely cameo necklace she had lost in the fire ,Of course as I was older ,I bought her one , And then when I told her story,and becauseDonna had made a signature one for me ,It was so lovely to give her the cameo again ....Thankyou so much Donna.

We must be so lucky because it is not raining here yet!  Yes, bad snow in the States especially in New York.  I saw that picture of Claudia's hat and I thought it was nice. Let us know how yours turns out, I might fancy making one myself.  Sad your Mum lost her treasures, great graphic of the cameo though.

Good morning Joan, Sorry about you having to go to the dentist. I hate doing that. The cameo is beautiful. Donna does beautiful work. Helen

We've got sunshine here at the moment. Don't want more rain after yesterday! Can we see pictures of your new cardi?! Nice story about the cameo, I have a cameo ring which belonged to my sister, I'd always wanted one and when she died my mum gave it to me. I have a signature one made by Donna. I did an entry last night, did you get any kind of alert for it? Jeannette.

Good luck at the dentist I will be thinking of you. When I was young I used to always be in the loo when it was my turn as I was always so nervous and then I had to wait again and so it continued. I remember it so well. Love Joan.

Hello my fellow knitter! Should we start a club? We could call ourselves The Knits! I'm on the 1st baby cardigan & it's so little! I can only sigh as Valentine's Day will pass me by...again! I do think it's a shame that they put the prices up on everything.
