Monday! It's good to see you this week because that means I'm a day away from our public holiday here. Time to put our feet up and make plans. It was a good weekend.
|Why do I always have my sleeves pushed up when I have my picture taken?|
Any weekend with a visitor (or two) is one to be enjoyed; and yesterday we had the absolute pleasure of opening our big black front door to the delightful Alexa (from Trimming the Sails) and her charming husband. We had a lovely hour together and we all enjoyed their company as we chatted about travel plans and work and scrapbooking, of course, and, yes, socks might have been mentioned too.
So I guess that means my "first" this weekend was meeting Alexa's other half. Thanks for making time in your flying visit, you two: we really appreciate it!
But I've mentioned socks, so I can shoehorn in something I'm going to join for the first time. This time last year I hadn't discovered Winwick Mum's blog and I didn't know I was missing the fun that was the 2015 Yarndale Sock Line. It's happening again this year and you can read all about this charity sock knit right here. I'll be knitting a pair and sending them off: the closing date is 12th September, so I'll be dropping my sweater and picking up my sock yarn again some day very soon.
So what's new with you? Do anything for the first time? Learn anything you didn't know before? Care to share? Go on: make a memo, then we'll all know!
Helena, Eileen, Mary-Lou, Fiona, Maggie, Deb, KraftyKaren and Mitra shared a memo last week..please drop by and wish them a good start to Monday. Now next week I'll be taking a break and I won't be around. But that doesn't mean you aren't more than welcome to make a memo and give us a glimpse into what you've been up to. I'll catch up with just as soon as I can! Have a good week.
