Another week bites the dust!

My pleas for the world to slow down for a few weeks haven't been answered so another week has gone by in a flash and with no blog post. 

This was the week that J got glasses.  He is only very slightly short-sighted but as soon as he put the glasses on, it was like the blind had suddenly been given the miracle of sight. He is so proud of his new glasses, he has even let me take a photo to show you!

I took a photo for WIP Wednesday and was going to blog but then we carried on drinking and knitting and by the time I got home, it was too late to blog.  The sock is Saltburn from the Coop Knits book and I am loving it. It may become the amazing technicolour sock as I am doing it in a group of mini skeins of Natural Dye Studio yarn that I won at Knit Nation but I think it will look fab when it is finished.

I have been sewing lots of stock this week. The shop is busy and I am trying to get ahead and make lots for the shows I am doing this year.  I am also trying to use up some of the fabric that I seem to have been hoarding for a while.  I seem to go in phases of buying lots of fabric then deciding I am going to keep it then a few months later, realise that I am not going to make anything for myself with it so I ought to put it in the shop.  This is one of those fabrics. I love it and I think it looks even better sewn up into both needle rolls and project bags. 

Both of these and a few more new prints will be popping up in the shop over the next day or so. I have great plans for a tidy-up of the shop over the weekend, given the rubbish weather we (still) have. I want to get super-organised before the end of school.

And now it is time I was on my way to school. As has been the case this last week, five minutes ago, the heavens opened and it is going to be another wet run to school. Just keep thinking of the cup of tea on the sofa when we get home with my little people :)

I also wish time would slow down a bit, I keep forgetting to blog. I'm hoping to do some catching up in the school holidays!!
