The one in which you'd wished you'd kept your gob shut or.."Be Careful what you offer to do...."

Well, the short version is I have to make a sorting hat... (it doesn't have to sort - although Sophie says if I can make it talk she'd be "fine" with that) by next Wednesday.... Well that is my weekend sorted!!;-)

Although I'm quite looking forward to KnitFlicks at the Picturehouse at FACT cinema here in Liverpool. Any other Scouse bloggers up for it???? If you are there wear a rose in your lapel!!!!! He Heee Heee! They are showing Atonement on Sat afternoon with the lights slightly raised in order for loonies like me to sit and knit through it!!! How cool is that, and then I've to dye Susie Q's hair and then teach her how to make Stew..... poor girl has missed out on this!!! Susie Q is Sophers housemate and the major news in that arena is I suppose that my mate Steve (see previous Steve the Roman posts for this) is going to be moving in with them as one of their flatmates moves out at the end of the month!!! (Oh the fun they are going to have with you and your madness eh Steviepops??!!!!)

I'm still rather lurgied up, I tried going back to work this morning - big mistake, was promptly sent home again and slept all afternoon with Dougal (cat) despite the Hitchcock film on the TV.

Whilst being poorly ick, Mummy and Daddy have been taking care of me very well and I've holed up at their gaffe with kitties to cuddle and the t'interweb to look at and her backlist of country livings (all in Magazine boxes - she'd also make a good Librarian!) and I've been watching all the birdies flitting in and out of the garden... including this lovely


The only one who wanted to stay still enough for a portrait!! I really need to get into "Action Shot mode"

Well I'm sure you've all had enough of my ramblings today, I'll post more of the sorting hat as I'm going along with it! so for today I'll sign off with some pretty flowers 'cos we all need a bit of prettiness and my sister does good flowers!!!

Yes, open mouth and insert foot, like the "Oh, yes, I can make a tu-tu, it's only layers and layers of netting gathered up (By hand, becuase although my machine has a gather stitch on it I can never be bothered and anyway, how long can it take.... like all 12 episodes of Brideshead Revisited....)

Well I will be VERY interested to see how you get on with the sorting hat - because I have two little Potter fans of my own! Good luck!

I hope you will be well enough for all the magical stuff you will have to manage this weekend Sarah - still, I reckon you are in the best place with Ma and Pa looking after you. Sounds lovely actually, shove over and let me in beside you, and pass me a magazine there's a good girl. xxx

Well, now I have the lurgy and I'm blaming you! Off to have a lie down...

Oh Sarah! You really have gone and done it this time. A sorting hat! I am looking forward to seeing that. (and can I ask, why does Sophie need a sorting hat?) LOL

I wish they did a knitflicks thing here - I'd be at it like a shot! I hope you feel better soon, the lurgy is doing the rounds here too. Am tempted to try a bio-suit. Except they'd thing the Aliens had landed!

Hate to Nag, don't suppose you've finished it yet? Went shopping last night and managed to get 10 witches hats for the library assistants. They are going to look great.

Thanks for the Sorting Hat!

The girls loved it. All my collegues thought it was great and my library assistants looked great in the hats. Big thanks from me xx
