Last Friday, when we went for our usual walk, The Labradors 'lost' me for seventeen minutes. They were running up the hill, I was walking on the path and they were out of sight. When I reached the turn back point, they were still nowhere to be seen. I walked for the next ten minutes with that horrid feeling in the pit of my stomach. I called them and they didn't come, I spied flashes of gold, but it wasn't them. I catastrophised by imagining they had plummeted over the cliff into the Gorge. (Never mind the were up the hill!!) When I was 2 minutes from the car, there they were, running up the track towards me. They were so puffed out and all wet because even Harki had been in the creek. I think what happened was they thought I had turned back and then they waited for me at the gate. MrsDrWho has pointed out that it was me who was lost, there were two of them, together, and they knew where they were!! I was so happy to see them that there were big hugs all round.
Peri has been 'shopping' in the grocery bags again and this time she ate a whole box of old fashioned rolled oats. They must have tasted awful, but she didn't seem to mind. She opened the box so nicely. She also hid the left shoe from two pairs of walking shoes. I foolishly wore a new pair and I am paying for it with two blisters the size of 50 cent pieces. I bought these really great Blister bandaid things at the chemist and they are helping a lot.
Harki has been back to see the Doctor and had her ears pronounced almost better. She got extra treats because she was shaking a little and she was very brave. I am going to start popping into the Hospital with The Labradors every now and then for a treat, so Harki doesn't think she is donating blood all the time.
There has been sewing. I have sewed a toile for the bodice of my new dress. It is very boring to look at. I have sewed the eyelet fabric into a skirt and I am particularly proud of the side seam matchiness. It must be lined. I have bought the lining, but I was waylaid by the need for a hat. Tomorrow. I bought some starry green fabric and I have whipped up a hat. I am not sure whether it will suit me or not but I don't care. Hattily careless am I.
Mrs Madcage and I are going to The Deloraine Craft Fair. Actually we on the Apple Isle just refer to it as 'The Craft Fair'. I go every few years. I know some Ravelry people are going but Mrs Madcage and I are foot disabled at the moment, so we'll limp along together in our own slow time.
I made The Cake-In-A-Mug. More of that with pictures and recipe soon. I'm not even trying today though. I recharged my camera batteries and then the camera and the computer threw hissy fits and refused to talk to each other. Then I changed the pixel width of my blog....... Least said, soonest mended there. And I'm off to sewing any minute now after this!!! There will be a Craft Fair report of some kind I hope. Oh and I have comments to reply to. No doubt there are people sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for that!!
