Skip To The Loo!!

It seems ages since I blogged. I just seem to be busy doing nothing at the moment! I've felt more able to get out and about a bit more, which does make me feel better, but gives me less time to do things.
On Monday, Spennyknit met up. The usual addicts were there and it was lovely to see some new members. The mince pies were yummy!! Thanks Andrea!
Friday was a bit of a roller coaster! It was my dear hubby's birthday. 21 again!! He's still waiting for his pressie from me, as the company I ordered it from decided not to tell me it was out of stock when I placed the order!! Adding to the stress , my son was referred for more medical tests on Friday too. I know that it's better to identify the problems cos then you can deal with them, but it still makes my anxiety levels shoot through the roof! I also did Darlo craft market with CarrieAnne, didn't sell a bean, got hypothermia but really enjoyed the day and had a good laugh!!
People of a nervous disposition should look away now!! There follows graphic images of..............loo roll covers!! Us 'Coven' members currently have a standing joke about loo roll covers!! I think I was responsible for this all starting, after jokingly suggesting CarrieAnne knit some for her stall!! I then bought her a BEAUTIFUL crinoline lady loo roll cover!! But back to the craft market, Andrea presented me with.....................

This GORGEOUS Christmas Pud loo roll cover!!!!

Aren't I a lucky Lady??!!

CarrieAnne preserved the handover of this fabulous gift for posterity !


I can see this getting out of hand, each of us ending up with loads of these things!! If anyone has seen any patterns for these gorgeous items, the tackier the better, could you let me know!The eventful day finished with a beautiful meal with the family. I think I was pleased it was over!!

On Sunday, our knitting groups had a table at a local craft fair, to sell the remaining teddies etc from the Picnic. Unfortunately, there were only a few customers through the door but we did sell some things. See CarrieAnne and Andrea's blog to see the photos of the newly named 'Coven'!! We knitted and nattered the day away, drank loads of tea and ate lots of biccies!! So it turned out well in the end!!

Aggh, our dark secret is out! I suppose I shall have to take a pic of the loo roll cover that is adorning my work desk now ;)

I think Lady Emily should definitely appear on your blog, just so everyone can see what you cover your own personal loo roll with at work!!!

I'm feeling very left out (thank God)! My bathroom has a naked loo roll in a pretty peach colour with de-bossed puppies all over it. I do like to see them naked - loo rolls that is, not puppies. No offence ladies! Glad to see you out and about 'Mrs Bucket' - sounds like you're back in the swing and enjoying your hectic social life. Hope to see you soon......

LOL! I love the kitsch loo roll cover! Just think, this Xmas, (if you celebrate Xmas that is) your decorations can even extend to your loo! I shall now look out for different patterns for you all. :-)

Ahh That brings back memories of those wonderful kitsch loo roll covers my mum used to make!! The crinoline Lady and those darn Puddles with their scary extended pompom paws and idiotic pompom head doo thingy!!

I've always been a bit confused by loo roll covers - I mean how cold can a loo roll get? ;-)
