It's my Mum's birthday next month, but she will be in England for it, specifically Devon. After which she will be in Scotland, for which these might be appropriate! These gloves (fingerless mitts from Alabama Studio Sewing and Design) are quick and easy to make, so are ideal for a gift.
Meanwhile I am still working on my Poetry Tank. Here are the four sections laid out in order LF, LB, RB, RF. If you click to enlarge the pic you might see the secret word I added. One letter per panel.
Or maybe this will make it show up better.
Yep, pretty juvenile. I do like a good swear at times, as anyone who knows me will attest! It was actually Keely's idea - she suggested breaking the word up over a seam so it wasn't obvious, and I thought if I put one letter per panel, not painted, nobody would notice (I DO NOT like swear words out there for all the world, ie children, to see) but it will make me smirk to know I am walking around saying f*** all day. Man I am way too easily amused. I should grow up and act my age.
