When I write about Tailfeather, does anyone else start singing Shake Your Tail Feather from the Blues Brothers Movie? No? Just me? Well now I’ve mentioned it you may too! I’ve put the link in so if you don’t know the song you can have a listen, and if you do know it you can wack up the volume and have a dance.
Meanwhile in the knitting world, my Tailfeather is far from finished! Countdown is on. To be honest I have barely had any time or energy to knit this week. I’m still quite a few repeats on the back to do before they are the same length and it will be time to do some sums on yarn left.
I hand sewed all the rips in Ylva’s squeaky toy collection, whilst watching The Great British Sewing Bee. So they are ready to go in the washing machine. I am amazed at how clever the sewing people are…sewers? Sewists? Anyway whatever you call them, this series they’ve made some amazing outfits out of laundry bags, high visibility clothing, tents!
I spent Wednesday tidying up my round up of the year post. I’m not sure whether I am posting this on the 30th or on the last Sunday of June, but it is ready, albeit if Tailfeather is finished I’ll need to update that line and add a finished photo.
I have also drafted my list for my 3rd YOP Year and have created another Page which is going to be for capturing other projects that I’d like to do one day…they just aren’t going to be my priority during the next year. Have you see the movie Up? I’m the dog distracted by…SQUIRREL! Hopefully having this other static page on my blog will act as a car park for future projects and won’t distract me from what I’d like to get done first. Anyway, these two new pages are Live, but will be edited as and when.
I had ordered some bonsai pots, compost and food, which all arrived this week. I have now transferred my mini trees I’ve been growing into these new pots.
I also ordered some new pallet collars to replace my rotten raised borders I bought 11 years ago and re-organised 9 years ago. On Friday I painted all 12 inside and out with some wood protector. I will line them with plastic compost bags and need to order a huge bag of top soil and/or compost. But as I’ve got crops growing they will need to wait. (If you only tune in on Sunday’s I did do a post about my garden mid-Week.)
