Just wanted to show you my new tea towels from our local discount shop. They were only 1.99 for three and I thought they looked a little CK ish.
Two of them are towelling but the trellis one is a lovely heavy weave - I suppose its a glass towel.
I'm just not sure if I can bring myself to use them as they are so lovely.
The crochet leaflets and books are some of my ebay purchases - I think it
was 99p for all the leaflets and 79p for the book. I've had a good look through but I think they are a little out of my league at the moment.
I must still plod on with my granny squares - I can do them now whilst watching tv with only the odd mistake. Did I say "watching tv" - I think I meant listening to the tv !!!
This sewing box was on my Christmas list from Boots - it is from the range that Country Living do for them but I decided to get my Cath Kidston one instead.
I saw this on ebay but the picture and description wasn't very good so I ended up only paying 4.50 - Miss T is having it as her sewing box and we are going to make some things together.
I love the little kit that comes inside it.
For those of you who read my blog yesterday about Colin our baby Collared Dove - he made it through the night and seems much stronger today.
He is feeding well and has come out of his box and his hopping round the dining room floor.
He doesn't have his tail feathers yet so cant fly - they look like sticks with a small feather stuck on the end - so I guess we will be looking after him a while longer.
We did prepare the kids for the worst last night as they often die within 24 hours and we didn't want it to come as a shock to them.
I know lots of people believe you should not take them in but I would rather him have a peaceful warm safe death than be mauled by a cat.
At the moment its looking like we might have a happy ending so fingers crossed.
Be back tomorrow with some more ebay bargains - I did go a bit mad !!
