Todays' to-do list

1. Walk dogs - check (in downpour - more below+)

2. Shop for supplies - and restock the Pimms and Lavendender soak - check (drove the pretty way through my favourite village - more below*)

3. More stitching of MWNN's pressie - check (coming along but still lots to do.)

4. Contact MWNN to tell him not to buy new bag/sack he promised. - No contact - ma-in-law's phone still on the blink, ( suspect she's deliberately left it off the hook. Soldier-boy brother-in-law said he'd spoken to MWNN two night's ago.)

+ got drenched, hence the need to replenish supplies at 2

* sceninc route to shopping centre takes me through Willian When I grow up, I'm going to have a cottage there, with a little picket fence, and a donkey in the padock and . . . fearsclave, can you see the pond where you can night fish just opposite The Fox Pub?

Fishing across the street from the pub? Must retire there. What sort of fish?

Haven't a clue. - Hey boater here, you know, sworn enemy of all fishermen, our goal is to see how many we can sink by filling their wellies with the wash from the bows. (Well, it must seem like it to many fishermen the way boaters break the knots'-limit on the canals.)

Perhaps the link to the fishing site might tell you more?

The site doesn't say... which is too bad. Would be a big difference between, say, trout and gudgeon :).

So you stitch as well? My girlfriend does that; she quite enjoys it.

Only when at home. Silk threads and river water do not make for a happy mix, particularly when said water comes courtesy of wet, muddy dogs.

Stitching is good for the psyche. Tend not to need to do it it when I'm afloat. Your GF got an LJ?

Naw, Suzanne doesn't have an LJ; she's not really very big on computers.

Wet and muddy dogs, OTOH, she's big on. We've got a Westie named Angus who's as fish-obsessed as I am if not more, and who spends hours up at the cabin sloshing around in the lake hunting frogs... and then rolling in the fire ring. The results are usually pretty horrendous, but Suzanne loves him anyhow. What sort of dogs are yours (I gather one is a terrier...)?

Pity, she could have helped with the problem I'm having finding an icon to go on my present piece.

The terrier's a rescue from the local animal sanctuary. I swore I'd never have a small dog, but, when the aunt of our present Shepherd died, I fell in love with him at first sight. He's sosmart, and an efficient killing machine.
The Shepherd is a lunatic who thinks she's a retriever. She grew up with a gun-dog-in-training at the mooring we used to have in Ramsey, on the fens.

What are you stitching?

First attempt at a large piece; a wall hanging on yellow silk. Putting the family crest in centre and some icons down the side (boaty ones and a couple of 'jokey ones. These are all being worked in yellow silk to give an embossed look.)

I'm actually more nervous about putting it all together on a backing, as I have absolutely no machine skills.

Ooh, sounds nice.

I need to improve my machine skills. I have made costumes before and got a machine of my own as a wedding present, but I'm not very good!
