Thanks to you all for your supportive comments on yesterday's post. I know the weekly 7 things updates have been a little dull, but they've been essential for me.
There was an intervention last night which included vodka and girlie mixers, a Thai takeaway, Red Dwarf series IV and casting on 9 TTWCs. It was good to have a break. Back to it tomorrow.
Also, the castanets were as real as they were lovely. I had a Spanish neighbour who chucked a lot of things out when she unpacked her sea container of belongings. Among the items she jettisoned were some old wooden toys, including the castanets and a small piano (also disposed of this week) and some gorgeous heavy cotton and lace bed linen. I still have the linen and a one-legged wooden marionette which hangs off a door handle.
I'm taking 4 weeks leave from next Friday, so consolidation of current progress will occur then, as will some major sewing projects. I bought a reasonable quantity of some gorgeous stretch satin this afternoon for some slinky nighties. Am feeling the need for something a bit more feminine than over-sized t-shirts.
