I feel like January lasted a lifetime, since my last post everyone in the house has been poorly and it has been very miserable.
I have however really enjoyed stitching the latest sew along by The Frosted Pumpkins! I think it is my favourite pattern yet! You can’t really see in this picture (and I do apologise for the less than great quality picture) but the fabric is sparkly! All things considered I am happy with my progress, it would have been nice to have all the borders finished but there we go.
Tonight sees the next installment and I can’t wait to see what story will be featured next!
The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
‘O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
What a beautiful Pussy you are!’
Pussy said to the Owl, ‘You elegant fowl!
How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?’
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.
‘Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?’ Said the Piggy, ‘I will.’
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.
