Cat Stevens kept sitting on my pre-felts - so nice and soft. So I cut her off a piece of her own. You can see it to the right of the uncomfortable scratchy organza I was working on. You can't win with cats.
Point taken on the cold weather. How do you live with it? We are lucky down here on the South Coast - never cold for long and rarely any snow.
Annabelle - I'm sticking with the stiff upper lip for now.
Glad you got your coffee Shirley. Happy to have been of service!
Verobirdie - you will love it.
Sorry about the bear thing, Sue. I'll have to tell the bear factory.
Thanks for the ideas for the Celtic Warriors - I'll have a think about that.
Thanks also for all the good wishes. The cooker man cometh today so I may have my big oven back. Fingers crossed.
