TRIMMING MY BUSH!

I’m TRIMMING MY BUSH my dear ladies and occasional gentleman. 


This will grow by magic to cover SLEEPING BEAUTY in our village pantomime, first night tonight.

I shall be donning my TUTU, WINGS, WAND & FISHNETS (Ronald is rather excited) as FAIRY FLORA.


OH NO YOU WON’T! OH YES I WILL!

Yours Pantoly

GINGER! I SHOULD SAY SO!

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman as you can see I have a large piece of MATERIAL which I have to transform into a 1920’s style DAME’S DRESS.

You will also note the lovely BLONDE 1920’s STYLE WIG, which arrived via our lovely POSTIE this morning.

I ORDERED A GINGER WIG!!!

IT’S BEHIND YOU ROLEY!

IT’S BEHIND YOU ROLEY!

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, does ABSENCE MAKE THE HEART GROW FONDER? I hope so as I have been sadly neglecting you but in my defense I have been rather busy.
1. Writing the village PANTOMIME ready to cast in December. (I am up to the interval, so ‘head down’ as Ronald often tells me.) To clarify for my COLONIAL friends, a PANTOMIME is a show where the men dress up as women the women dress up as men, someone dresses up as an animal, the dialogue is full of INNUENDO and DOUBLE ENTENDRES there is singing and dancing and general hilarity.
2. I have been concentrating on writing my book.
3. I have been watching STRICTLY COME DANCING (this year the women are more covered up and I’m pleased to say the men are not!)
4. I have been KNITTING and SEWING for the VILLAGE ANNUAL SHOW.
5. Ronald and I had to make a mercy dash to WAITROSE as my dear friend Veronica the well known and famous FORRAGER, was hosting an event and had forgotten her SHAGGY INK-CAPS. We didn’t have much time so we popped into the CO-OP and bought some CHESTNUT MUSHROOMS reduced becuse they were past their sell-by date.They were a bit bruised so looked a bit inky.

CHAFFENED CHOCOLATE DERRIÈRE!

CHAFFENED CHOCOLATE DERRIÈRE!
My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, much as it pains me to discuss such an intimate and distasteful matter, I feel compelled to in order to prevent you suffering the same distress I experienced last night.

Here is the CULPRIT!
image

This may just look like innocent REINDEER decorated toilet paper BUT if you look closely you will see that the decoration colour is BROWN!

And it SMELLS LIKE CHOCOLATE!

10 minutes of scrubbing and a CHAFFENED DERRIÈRE last night, before I realised it WASN’T ME!

Yours Chaffingly

THAT BURNING RING OF FIRE

THAT BURNING RING OF FIRE to quote JOHNNY CASH.

imageMy dear ladies and occasional gentleman it is our ANNUAL AUTUMN SHOW on Saturday and here I am imagemaking  a POM-POM for a hat to be entered into class 74.

I have made the POM-POM the old fashioned way with two pieces of cardboard cut into a ring donut shape. Wind the yarn round and round until it is covered and plump, then cut around between the two pieces, tie a piece of wool tightly between cardboard rings until secure, then slide off the cardboard and VOILA  a POM-POM.

This is the finished hat.

Ronald is not amused at the millions of orange fibers scattered over the sitting room as if I had fired the POM-POM out of a SHOTGUN!

Yours Fiberly

HAPPY SUNDAY – TARTING DAMES

HAPPY SUNDAY – TARTING DAMES

Happy Sunday my dear ladies and occasional gentleman, I believe it is ‘HAPPINESS WEEK’ somewhere in the world this week.

Ronald went into town for his SUNDAY PAPERS this morning and the young lady with the RUBENESQUE figure was overcome by a gigantic yawn.

“Heavy night?” enquired Ronald

“No” replied RUBENESQUE young woman, “I’m pregnant, and I am constantly tired”

“Oh” replied a bemused Ronald.

As he explained to me on returning home ” How could she tell she was PREGNANT, she was big enough to fit six babies in and not notice!”.

That’s EVOLUTION I told him, the younger generation are all getting bigger, just as we are bigger than our grandparents.

“They should have more self-control over their eating” said Ronald pouring his second glass of GUINNESS.

This afternoon I shall be MAKING-OVER a ‘DAMES’ dress it needs a little TARTING up, here is the before picture, hopefully the after picture will show an improvement. I also have some princess dresses to do.

COUNTRY CREAM FINISHES ME OFF

Interior painted
Ronald Finishes Me Off With Country Cream

What a hero Ronald is, he has erected my summerhouse whilst I painted most of the outside in ‘Pale Sage’,  Ronald finished it off and has painted my inside with country cream . Although we are in dispute.  I want some of my externals  picked out in country cream and Ronald so far is passively resisting. I have some ideas for my inside which includes some hand-painting, photos to follow.

Disaster,  the wool shop had run out of the wool I needed to complete Little Nanook’s blanket.  They may order some more but cannot promise. This may see me unpicking the border I have already sewn on and buying new wool, sigh.

2013.06.20 gemini & light blue teddies

Here are two new knitted bears, I still have to embroider noses and will now start on their clothes. Their personalities evolve as I am knitting them and every one is completely unique just like me

Yours Creamily
