The Jumper's number is up : 1,1,2,3,5 .....

The Fibonacci Jumper is all complete, ready to wear. It is excellent – if only it was green. I have nothing to knit. It is terrible. I have embroidery and patchwork and sewing to do but it is hard to do that watching TV. I will have to finish those things though before I am allowed to start any more sewing:

· The ever present Library cushions

· Aunty Captain Mrs Archer’s windcheater

· Jeans which need taking up and taking in!!!!!

· A long Swan Lake tutu for Baby Elizabeth

· The heart embroidery coaster

So that is that then. I can look but I can’t buy or knit anything. I have a lot of reading to catch up on too – new Library books. I am particularly looking forward to the one on Shakespeare. How do I love Shakespeare? Let me count the ways… I adored Shakespeare at school, we studied Julius Caesar, Lear, Romeo and Juliet, Othello, Macbeth ( the Scottish play) A Midsummer’s Night Dream, Hamlet, Merchant of Venice, Twelfth Night, The Taming of the Shrew, The Tempest, Antony and Cleopatra, Henry V, poems and the sonnets. Wow, I didn’t realise how many plays I had studied . We didn’t do many Histories though, mainly Comedies and Tragedies. Shakespeare was such an inventor of words and phrases that there are too many to even think about, he must have had an amazing mind…. Boy does the US shut down for Independence Day – nothing new, no IMDB, no Zap2it Girl, no updated blogs ( well hardly any) no nothing!! I am recycling: newspapers, bottles, glass jars etc. I am making 47 trips up all the stairs to the back gate and then up the steep driveway to the road. I keep having to have a big sit down and a rest, it makes me very puffed out. Harki has undone the ball of green raffia string, but I can’t growl at her as she is being so cute and wagging her tail and wanting to play!!
