Happy Wednesday! It’s time to share what we are reading and making with Ginny from small things for Yarn Along.
I have been rereading David’s Bridge this week by Pamela June Kimmel.(I love this book)and I finished attaching the crochet collar to my cardigan. I have a few books on my kindle now and find it a convenient way to transport books particularly when I am on public transport. Have you embraced virtual books or do you prefer hard copy?
I have written and made up stories and read stories since I can remember. I have never read one out loud before so when Bacon suggested we do just that. I thought “what a fun idea” and “why not?” Well,this marks my foray into video taking. It was so much fun and I have a lot to learn but thank you Bacon for giving me the gentle push to get it happening. Without further ado, I give you “Dearie Ewe of Tall Trees farm” I will also link the other stories as they come in. Make yourself a drink, take a break for approximately 3 minutes and get ready for a smile of a time.😀
Item one. My “Golden Lambkin” another amigurumi lamb which will be part of my story on the 15th June poses beside a ball of yarn destined to become “Lawrence the Ram” (who will also be in the story) and the lamb pattern will follow.
Item two. A close up of a new stitch I learned from Karin from amilovesgurumi who used this stitch to make these dog beds for the amigurumi dogs. Click on the link to be transported to “The crazy universe behind the horizon”
Item 3. My dogs Jack and Tricky went to a party and went totally wild! Read about it here. Thanks Easy and Easy’s staff and thanks too for fozziemum and Dad for manning the bar and serving up “the rough end of the pineapple!” How come my critters get to go to more exciting parties than I do?
If there is weekend left where ever you are enjoy! and if not there is another coming soon.
This week for yarn along with Ginny from small things I introduce”Parlour Games for Modern Families.” This book was written by Myfanwy Jones and Spiri Tsintziras. Written locally, it is a must have for school holidays or a games evening. If you are looking for a fun way to entertain children that doesn’t involve a screen, this is the book!My own story about sheep and aussie animals would not be complete without a wee pig or two (or three or four). This is Miss Petty Pig who proudly displays two of her litter, Fiddly and Wriggles. See you on the 15th June to share a story right here and around the blogosphere.
Joining Ginny for yarn along this week I would like to introduce to you a mature Ewe called Dearie. Dearie Ewe is a character from a story I wrote for my son and the lamb beside her is not her lamb but one she is watching for another sheep. I plan to tell the whole story on the 15th June and I would love for you to stop by and check it out. There will be other stories from other people on that day too and you might even like to share one yourself. More information about the storytelling day here. This week I am still reading the Manuel Rivas book and enjoying it. Manuel Rivas writing style reminds me of John Steinbeck. I think it is how his characters are so much larger than life ,how they manage to shine through gloom and how they stay with you after the book is put away. Now it is back to my own story and I am looking forward to hearing the others.
My contribution to the Squirrel Picnic CAL has been tried and tested by Jack.
He gives it a dog snore of approval. Looks like I will have to make another one for myself!
Meanwhile, perhaps you will consider joining me on the 15th June with a piece of your writing? I Would LOVE to hear it. More information HERE!
