I’m off to Rome early morning so I’ll bid everyone a good evening and pick back up next weekend. Have a good week everyone, I hope everyone gets lots of sales.
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.
Gosh, sorry if I missed a sale, but hopefully I have them all on the tally now! Happy dancing.
Thank you too Roz @OrchardFelts I have changed the typo in my title.
All loved and pinned to here.
Please can you add a sale to the tally for me Natalie @NOfkantsCurios
Well done on your sale Lynn @erkinwald
Was quite sunny here for a while and able to take photos in the garden.
I was quite pleased with these ‘blingy’ earrings! Blingy to me anyway 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.

Congratulations! You’re on a roll!
At last - I am back, got a bit sidetracked making a start on another hare!
Happy to report 2 sales please Natalie @NOfkantsCurios with an extra happy dance as it takes me to my next milestone of 400 sales - Yay
Now to go and write a few listings for next week

Well done Roz @OrchardFelts on your two sales! And you have just tipped us over the 50 collective sales mark!
Cat @BabanCat …I can explain it…I come from London…lucky to even see the sky between the buildings there…lol…

Can you add a sale for me please Natalie @NOfkantsCurios
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!
All caught up Thankyou for your patience, loved and pinned to ‘Folksy Cool Things For You’
