Here's a close up of the 11th day - but only two drummers!! This series are numerically challenged. And size wise they are not totally satisfying as all are different sizes and many are different shapes - but in the charts there are historical notes about this "rhyme" which makes interesting reading as well as stitching. Once I have finished these I intend to pass on the charts so have a think about whether or not you would like this set. I'll let you know later when the draw is to be held.
There have been other diversions too. The blog that first introduced me to this wonderful world of needlework blogging is Dani of The Peacock's Feather and through Dani I found "Stuck in A Book" and Simon has revived my addiction to libraries and second hand book shops and extended the scope of my reading too! But in all fairness I should say that I was not at all reluctant! Through him I have revived my love affair with Lord Peter Wimsey; been seduced into total silence as I read Mr Briggs Hat; etc etc. Anyway this afternoon the HDHBEM and I went out to a nearby suburb where lurks the Hard To Find Book Shop. Now I cannot make up my mind whether it is the books that are hard to find or is it the bookshop?
Inside this tiny store is a labyrinth of bookshelves, precarious looking ladders, stacks of books - all old but some ancient- a sleeping cat and two armchairs in which reside lifesize stockinette dolls dressed as old men and reading books!
No prizes for guessing how my evenings are spent! My only problems are that the evenings are never long enough.
So its good night to all now as I was my dinner dishes, prepare my lunch box for tomorrow and complete the final Christmas ornament. Have a great evening everyone.
