An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.' The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?' The first man thought and thought and finally said, 'What’s the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know, the one that's red and has thorns.' 'Do you mean a rose?'
'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, 'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?'
Secret Shoebox Stash
I have a guilty secret...I love to collect shoes boxes, I can't bring myself to throw them away. I don't see a shoe box, I see a handy little drawer where I can stash something inside.
From where I'm sitting now I can see seven shoes boxes all stacked up on top of one another hidden behind the door and each one has treasure hidden inside.
I might show you them all and even reveal their contents some day but for today you can see inside the one above with all my blanket motifs ready to be joined onto the blanket.
There are eighty motifs there and when there is just one left of a particular colour I will make three more so I have a continuous supply of each colour hidden in my secret shoe box that's hidden behind the door :)
Each Sunday I place my blanket on the bed just to see how much bigger it needs to be and every week I change my mind about the size. This week I'm thinking it doesn't need to be quite as big as I thought so I made more new calculations which knowing me, will probably change again next week.
This week I joined 80 motifs on to the blanket and I made 56 which means....
I need to join 182 more and make 102.... it's getting there :)
Have you got guilty secret what do you like to hoard other than yarn of course, please don't tell me I'm the only one.
Spring is nearly sprung and we had sunshine yesterday
A little crocus in my garden smiling in the sunshine.
Have a great week!
