All Mess And No Eton   21st June

House-Elf 2 and I were watching Celebrity Masterchef (she is an avid cook), and JB (not that I know who he is) from JLS (not that I know who they are) was on. He was actually pretty good. Anyway, he makes this Eton Mess type thing, and Greg says, “What I’ve got here is all mess and no Eton”. Made me smile.

If you have not been following my napkin work, and have no idea what I am talking about, then read on (if you have been following, then I am about to repeat myself) and I will explain. The idea, at first, was to sew a word onto an old napkin for each day of the month. A word with some relevance for that particular day. However, as usual, I didn’t stick to my own brief. ‘One word’ soon became ‘a few words’, or sometimes a picture. The aim is to end up with a memento of the month. If you look at the cloud to the right, or at the end of the post, and click on the ‘napkin’ heading, you will be able to view notes about the other words.

Have a good week,

P.S. We are having building work done in August, due to finding loads of rotten floorboards (a twenty year leak we knew nothing about when we moved here, a few years ago) and asbestos. Anyway, we will be living in one room with a microwave, which we have yet to purchase. Meanwhile, I have to pack everything away, including the computer.

I have decided to close my shop for the whole of August, but will continue with my giveaway.

  1. Oh Alison, what a chore. I’m so sorry to hear about all the repair work. You will be sorely missed in the blogosphere.
    I got a kick out of the rest of this post and i love the old photo.
    Hang in there.

    • Thanks Teagan.
      I intend to try and post on WordPress from my phone, if I get the chance. And can figure it out.
      I’m just closing my shop because I don’t feel confident to deal with that on my phone.
      Hope you’re having a good week

  2. Sorry to bombard your notifications board today, I’ve been an erratic reader lately. I do hope you get through all the building work intact and unpack your computer asap! xxx

  3. it’s all looking fantastic! (travelling back in time here..) And I’m overcome with an impulse to flatten hats with cricket bats. 🙂
