Hello everyone I’ve just arrived back home from Kent about an hour ago. We had a lovely time, although I am now extremely tired and very achy.

I have just looked at my shop and I’m astounded to say I have had 3 orders over the few days I was away. To say I’m speechless is an understatement. Could you add 3 to the tally for me please @NOfkantsCurios, 1 aran cardigan and 2 chunky knit hood jackets.

I am now sorry to say I am going to have to put a notice on my shop to say I can’t take on any more orders until Christmas. Also I wont now have the time to take part in the listing challenge so I’ll see you again about Christmas time.

Have a great rest of the month and beginning of December everyone and see you when I have completed the 6 open orders. I the sales fairy is as good to you all as she has been to me this month.

I am now going to dance/hobble my way to my armchair and get knitting.

Afternoon all
Was quite sunny here for a while :sun_with_face: and able to take photos in the garden.
I was quite pleased with these ‘blingy’ earrings! Blingy to me anyway :upside_down_face: Especially as they were just made from some old bits of brass and copper.
Have a good Sunday evening x

@teabreaks @XStitcherJoss It’s a phrase I use with my friend when we go walking. If there’s not enough blue sky for a sailor’s trousers we have coffee instead!
Her late mother used to say it. She was Welsh speaking from Rhos. Perhaps it’s a generational phrase rather than geographic. Either way, it’s a nice phrase. By using it ourselves hopefully another generation will use it after we’ve gone.

It was my Dad who used to talk of sailors’ pants. His father was Cornish, his mother was Russian, and Dad was brought up in London. I think the expression is, as Cat @BabanCat says, probably generational. Also I think the expression is very old, and relates to sailors’ pants from a very long time ago. Francis (@thatenamelguy) says his father used to say ‘enough blue for a pair of Dutchman’s trousers’. He was from Essex. I used the expression without thinking, so it was a nice surprise to have all this reaction on this thread!
