Yes, my 300th post and I'm still here with something to say and something to show.
The first blogger or lurker to guess what the little crocheted treasure above is will win it. This is a one off prototype and will never be made again. No pattern exists and once you know what it is you will wonder how you ever managed without it. If no one wins I will demonstrate the use of this rare object in my next post. The object is small and light so I am willing to post anywhere in the world if you are willing to email your address.
No it's not that, or that so guess again. No Charlotte doesn't want it for a tail warmer.
Some bloggers list 10 things others don't know about them but really there is only two things to know about me. I love the British Royal Family and I love cats.
Here is the Queen wearing her bow brooch.
Now look, the Queen and I share the same taste in brooches and I have one the same as hers. Put side by side no one could tell the difference. I've allowed my old doll to wear mine as I don't want to dazzle people when I go shopping. Or be mugged for the diamonds. My brooch came from a catalogue and I paid $9.99 but really they are identical right down to the last diamond.
Another crown tea cosy finished. This one was quick and easy to knit, looks impressive but still needs more jewels stitched on. Thanks to Gina who made sure I was alerted to this cosy and Peta whose pattern it is. I am ready as always for any member of the royal family to drop in for tea.
Another bugbear of mine. Who said there was only 2 things to know about me.
I don't like reverse parking but I can do it if I have to, last week I had to.
So I start to reverse, the male of the species in the car with me immediately started to give directions. I gritted my teeth and said nothing. (honestly). Then a man on the footpath joined in with more helpful!! directions. How I didn't jump out of the car and run screaming down the street and leave them to it I don't know. . Why do two men think I need help??? I want one of those cars that parks itself. I think you leave it in the middle of the road, the car finds a spot and parks itself.
Cat lover, collector of British Royalty memorabilia, Anglophile,avid reader and cross stitch addict. Keen op shop, market, collector fairs and ebay shopper. Mother of 2, Grandmother of 2 and now am very sad about the loss off my two Birman cats Charlotte and Emily.
Not very tall, not very slim and more bad hair days than good. Don't like cooking or gardening so recipes and gardening hints will never appear on my blog.
To sum me up, think minimalist, I am the opposite.
