It's the Monday after the weekend before. No: not the Superbowl, not round here, instead we were looking forward to the first matches of the Six Nations rugby competition. We lost. I wasn't going to mention it at all. But when I looked at the photo I'd just taken
all green and red, I realised that I should have added something of my teams, in those colours, into the mix.
But let's not speak of lost opportunities. It's mail day, memo day, or mail memo day. Oh, it's Monday: just write about anything if your mail isn't up to much! I struck lucky this week.
First up: a catalogue I'd been hoping for. You'll have heard me talking about Gudrun Sjoden before. I visited the shop when we were in Berlin (and I even made a page about it) and I found there a dizzying delight. But the catalogue holds its own pleasures. I'll be holding on to this one; and not simply because I can see another linen tunic in my future. No, this one is heading for the inspiration pile on my desk.
So that was worth opening. But then I received a little packet from across the pond, followed by an envelope, and so I had a gift from Mitra and a card from Alexandra and they made my day. Thank you! Alex's card says Do What You Love so I added to my photo the sweater I've been knitting. Remember I ordered the wool for the yoke a couple of weeks back? Over the weekend the croft hooses appeared beneath my fingers as I worked those balls into the final section. I'm so close to finishing..
So before I start another row (or round, as it's on a circular needle) let me ask you: how was your weekend? anything new? do anything for the first time? Or maybe you received something nice in the mail? We'd love to hear about it. Maybe you'd think about joining us?
Deb, Ruth, Jane, Barbara, Lizzy, Mitra, Mary-Lou, Karen, Honore, Alexandra, Melissa, Barbara, KraftyKaren, Cheri, Alexa and Maggie all contributed a memo last week. Go on, give 'em a wave! And have a good week!
