Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments on the owls who sat in session at Parliament. I am so overwhelmed by all your words, and hope that sooner or later I get to see some of your own owls . I have one picked out to go on a cushion cover for Joyce, and then I might have a sit down and a rest. I will reply to each one of you, within the next FIVE to SEVEN days.. There is a birthday to celebrate on the 25th!!! So I have allowed for extra recovery time.
After all, the older you are, the longer it takes, for everything!!!
As there should have been a lady dancing yesterday, but the owls took up so much room, here is one today. I was maybe 15, and my Dad had it in one of his photo albums, with the words “ A Duty Dance, ? ” This was maybe 1955, and the Maxina among other dances was in fashion then. Solemn as could be!!!
A little later, he had this photo, titled” In Happy Mood” so probably not at the same place!!! I am on the left, then my Dad and then my Mum.
Dad was a whizz with words, and wrote poems or tales for every auspicious occasion or event that required some input. My Mum was a seamstress, a dressmaker, and a sewer of everything, and as long as I can remember, she sewed. Cow covers, canvas with leather straps, working clothes, school clothes and uniforms, wedding gowns, and all else. The modern machines today would seem like an unimaginable dream to her.
So onwards to todays blogs to hop to and leave another comment.
You will meet Meloney, and I am staggered at her “ July to do List” but am sure there will be time allotted for the blog hop post. Visit her here.
Next is Mel, and as I scrolled through her blog, found so much to marvel at, and you all need to do that and see some of the knitting, crocheting and applique !!! Wow, they are all superbly stunning. Visit Mel here at
Last for today is Cheryl. You might have already met her, with her other post, and so many great ideas and projects to store away for later in the year. Tune in again for some more inspiration.
There has been a slight change in the date for the comment tally. Sarah has been called away , a family member is very ill, so the date of the giveaway announcement and the winners is now Friday 4th August instead of July 28th. I am sure we all send Sarah, her husband and all the family a heap of caring thoughts and more.
