Thanks heaps Rachel for the wonderful pattern, I loved knitting it and will definitely be knitting it again before too long. And thanks to the YouTube woman who taught me how to knit in the front and the back of a stitch.
Oh and what looks like gathering in the front is really the rosettes underneath on the dress she lives in at the moment and yes, that's her breakfast down the front of it.
For those interested in the details, it is raveled here.
Now on to the giveaway.
Yesterday I got locked in an op shop!
We were on our way home from Melbourne when we stopped in Bacchus Marsh for some supplies and I made a quick dash into the oppy.
I did the quick sweep of the linens, the craft supplies and the books and then headed to the counter with my sheets. There was no one there.
I waited for a bit. I called out. I knocked on the staff room door and then peeked inside but no one came.
By this time I thought Bren would probably be getting impatient in the car, so I popped the sheets on the counter and went to the door to leave but it was locked.
Hmmmm what's a girl to do when locked in an op shop but to have another look around. So I did.
Then after a while I got a bit concerned that maybe everyone had left for the night and I was really and truly locked in. So I went to the door to check out the closing time and saw that it wasn't for another three quarters of an hour. OK, maybe she had just gone to the toilet or for a coffee or something.
So I flicked through some magazines and then I saw the shop keeper walking towards the shop and I must say I was mighty relieved.
She apologised and said she had checked every row before leaving for the bank but lucky for me she had forgotten her bank book and returned straight away. She also said she thought it wasn't exactly a bad place to be locked in.
I paid up and left thinking about how lucky I was that it wasn't a public toilet, or a dark car park or our wheat container and how lucky I was to have found these gorgeous sheets.
So I want to share my luck with you and have a little giveaway.
What: a fat quarter from each of the sheets I was lucky enough to find yesterday.
How: tell me what you are making for dinner tonight if its vegetarian. If its not please tell me a vegetarian dinner suggestion.
When: A quick game is a great game. I'll draw a winner randomly on Thursday.
Who: You! I'll post anywhere.
Have fun out there. X
