Rhapsody by Blondie

Last night whilst watching Dr Who, Arrested Development and the penultimate The Last Detective I sewed in the ends along the front and shoulders of the Fibonacci Jumper, only the back and a few stray ones to go now. I also knitted the body of the last dinosaur. No blanket stitching was done, but I have made up for it by doing some this morning. I plan to sit and finish the wrap today, all the blanket stitching at least, and then look for a picture of Captain Sheridan’s shirt on the net for a starting point for making Aunty Captain Mrs Archer one. Really for this she should be Aunty Captain Mrs Sheridan!!!

It has stopped raining but I am still hoping for more – we had about 20 mm which is almost an inch in the old language.
