My photo today shows the wonderful bag that I grabbed whilst in TK Maxx (yes, I do almost live in that store!) recently. I was looking for a bag to carry my knitting supplies around in, and could not walk out of the store without this beauty. It is quilted, double-sided (the lining is the same as the amazing tropical print on the smaller zip-up case) and even the handle is really nicely padded. Would have cost a lot of money anywhere else, but the Haverfordwest store does seem to get a very nice selection of bags so this was within my budget.
The dog that I started knitting awhile ago (my first project for many many years) is finished, apart from his nose and eyes. My sewing together/stuffing skills definitely need practising, as that part took me ages.
In other parts of my life, I am feeling a bit better. The mystery lower abdomen/kidney pain has lessened, and I am generally feeling brighter. I go back to see my doctor after our Spanish trip. I have been making lots of effort to rest more, so a lot of the housework/organising that I usually like to do before going away is being left. Those cobwebs and floor polishing can wait!
I have sad news that Doris the Donkey had to be put down on Monday. Her sarcoid had flared up and spread considerably since the end of last week. I wanted to go down to Devon and be with her, but obviously there was no chance of me making that journey by myself and Rich is too busy on the farm. RIP DORIS xxxxx
