We are having awful weather in the UK so much rain and it is really cold, just a fortnight ago some water authorities were about to impose a hosepipe ban due to an acute shortage of rainfall. On Sunday I saw a really funny sight in the middle of the town, a man was standing with an umbrella sheltering from the rain and a duck had decided to waddle next to him so that it also did not get wet!
Panic hit the country just before Easter after the petrol tanker drivers threatened to go on strike, culminating into a fuel shortage as people filled up their tanks. The latest shortage is postage stamps as people rush to buy them before a huge price increase next week. Things are really crazy here.
I turned the Easter Egg pattern into a bookmark
This is Martha Ess's bookmark Mirror, Mirror from her book Playing with Picots
Also from the same book Canopy
No one said there was going to be a shortage of thread or shuttles so we just keep on tatting! Which reminds me I have to test some pop-a-bobbin shuttles this evening ready for the next batch to be delivered to Janes.
