Apologies for rather a long absence from my blog. To tell the truth I was not in the best of humour last week, due mainly with the continued shenanigans with the patio. Things are now resolved, we've sacked the contractor and will finish the job ourselves. Big sigh of relief!
At least on Monday we had a busy and successful craft afternoon, making beaded necklaces for gifts to go in the shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. Thanks go to Sue for leading this session and providing lots of lovely materials and ideas. And thanks to all the ladies who come each month and make such a huge contribution to the shoebox effort.
In the meantime I have been trying to maintain my sanity by continuing to knit puppets, and have now completed 76, so over three-quarters of the way to my goal of 100 for the year. I now have my life back, after over six weeks of waiting around for workmen who don't show up and tolerating the piles of dust and mess and frustration. Normal service has now been resumed.
