A Few "F"'s For Fursday

From High In The Sky today I am:


  • Fantasizing about an hour curled up with a book this afternoon. Instead we are off to the orthodontist (wish us luck)
  • Fielding a clutch of questions all beginning with  "At Christmas, when I get my hamster.."
  • Finding Folksy easier to navigate than Etsy
  • Ferretting through the fashion at a favourite new blog That's Not My Age. For the ahem,(slightly) more mature among us
  • Feeling just a little bit foxy in my new cord dress
  • Fessing up to feeling slightly tearful, but very thankful, every time I think about the blog hop. Still. Thank you to everyone for your comments and mentions and everything.
  • Flying a flag (alright then, a banner) for Kate of Liberty Cottage who is the winner of my blog giveaway. Please get in touch Kate and I'll put it in the post.


Since I finished my little banner, I've been thinking about sewing some more felt. So I've searched out my favourite felty finds and here they are:
Whatever you are up to this Thursday - have a good one!

Well then Foxy Lady .... what ARE you going to do with that hamster?

Amy said...

I've just had a look at TNMA ... she's a bit of a hoot - I go for shorter hair by the way ;-)

Sian said...

Amy, I think I'm going to have to train it to do the ironing.

Amanda said...

Well I wish you luck with the hamster thing :) Thanks for all those felt links I find it easy to work with too very forgiving. Oh don't say that about Etsy.......am I going to have to change my plans?

I think the answer is "yes,but what do you want THIS christmas?"!

Liberty :) said...

Thank you very much! I can't believe I won this and Mel's prize yesterday. I literally never win a thing! I will have to do the lottery this week! This is a great post too!

Micayla said...

Love the pretty dress Sian. I need to treat myself to something pretty now.
Love the F's for Thursday, what a good idea.

Cheri said...

Well you foxy little fantasizer, you do look quite fetching in that frock! Best of luck at that Ortho...you might want to take Kate along, seems she has been having a string of luck lately!

Scrappi Sandi said...

Ooooh! Fabulous Foxy Frock!...very Fetching! Thanks for all the Fabulous Felt links too! Hope all went well at the Orthodontist! DS2 has also asked for a hamster but I just say NO!!! Not that I don't like hamsters...it's just being nocturnal they do tend to be at there most noisy after bedtime!!! Not good when he wants to keep one in his room!!!

Kim said...

I thnk frazzled works for me...

and the word verification is a word that starts with f!

lol,

Carmen said...

I'm glad you mentioned the dress as I was drooling over it as soon as I saw your piccy. I don't 'do' dresses but just might have to when I hit my goal... mind sharing whre from and whispering the price - you look huhmazing in it btw!

Hamsters - *shudder* I remember Devvie getting one after begging and pleading and puppy eyes and many, many, many promises that she would do all the looking after... yeah well, you can imagine who did end up with hamster duties and she was to scared of it biting her to play with it so guess who got that job too. I accidentally let it escape one day just to see her screaming and heading for the hills. Mwahahahaha!

scrapchick said...

Fun post. And oh boy on the hamster! I just can't go there again, lol. We had with the older kids and I'm done. 2 1 year old pups & a cat are enough. :)

helena said...

fabulous frock and fanks for finding folksy

Louise said...

fab post, off to look at your links, fanks xx

Rhona said...

Love the frock, it looks fab on you :) Hope all went well at the Ortho - we've now been referred to a specialist for more info on Emily's situation. Neither she or I are keen on the operation option though!

Oh, I'm not sure about a hamster ... have you run this past Horsey? I'm not sure he will be happy sharing his position as family pet.
Great self portrait by the way!
Hope the orthodontist trip went well, I suspect it maybe the first of many!

Clair said...

Loving the way you've put this f-ing post together

Karen said...

I have quite a lovely little basket of felt, so I'm off to check out your links. My felt could use some love.

Maria Ontiveros said...

Well, good on for the small one. I can't tell you the number of times Clara has slipped the item "kitten" onto the grocery shopping list in hopes that her father will absent mindedly pick one up at the store (I guess).
We've had a quiet useful holiday here today. Finally posting (tomorrow) the story you inspired of my husband meeting my dad for the first time. Thanks for the inspiration.

alexa said...

Can we add 'f' for fantastic? Yep, that's you. Especially in that dress. You can't possible be old enough to have teenage children. :)

Rachel B said...

Definitely a lovely dress and good luck with the hamster and the orthodontist!

........and I hope you manage to a get a little 'me' time to be able to read your book :)

laurie b said...

Alana said...

Your post title reminds me of the children at school who fought(thought) and finked (think)LOL. Loving the cord dress...your rocking the look! Did you make it? as I am looking for some super duper bright cord to make a skirt. Heart cord.

cate said...
