My blind spot...

Having successfully washed the verticals for some of the bedrooms at number 43 last week I finally got round to putting them back up today; this entailed trimming off the stray threads, spritzing with water, ironing them, sliding the weights and hangers back in before clipping them back into place. My rate is approx 26 blinds per hour - will add this to my next C.V. This evening I escaped to sailortown for more arts & crafts - have got about 3 hours of knitting done today in total; at Bean and at the art group - shame I don't have more mug jumpers to show for it. Arrived home to find Blanco snuggled up with Ann, so comfortable he barely glanced up as I came in the door - apparently they enjoyed '27 Dresses' more than Chuck did.


  1. Bring your mug jumpers to Book Club tonight and knit while we chat! I'm bringing my crochet.
    "Chuck"....I love it!! Cx

  2. Oh Queen Niqi, I think that you've found your voice and your style and your niche perfectly! When have verticals ever looked so good?

  3. Verticals look so good when you find the picture on the net!!!
