Lots of excitement this week...

if you live a very quiet life, that is.

Socks were finished...

and started. There wasn't enough of the pale blue left  to make another pair, and not very much of the mid blue, so I am knitting quickly to finish before the wool runs out. 

It was Contemporary Textile Workshop this week. Unfortunately the tutor who was scheduled to lead it is ill (get well soon, T!) so no-one was sure precisely what she had in mind, except that it included tapestry canvas, potato prints, sheers, hand embroidery, machine embroidery, added embellishments and a square box frame. More or less in that order.

This is my response to the magical mystery tour. As you can probably tell, the hand stitch has not yet been completed. (Cross stitch? Me?) 

And finally, the biggest excitement of all - Babybel had her first visit from the tooth fairy! (I have no idea what the going rate is for teeth these days, but I bet it's more than sixpence, which it was in my day. That's 2.5p, for younger readers.)

Granny has inexplicably neglected to provide a tooth fairy cushion, so she spent a few minutes on Google in order to repair the omission. Most of them seem to be tooth shaped - but not the shape of baby teeth as I remember them - and any case that design seems quite unpleasant to me - so I shall have to keep looking, or invent something myself.

We hope for a quieter time next week  - if only to give granny time to make the tooth fairy cushion!
