10 Things

Not a lot to report. There has been a bit of tea cozy crochet action. After the previous post, I thought a nice crocheted king parrot might look nicely upon the topee of a tea cozy festooned with flowers, and *swoon* of course crochetroo has a pattern (with a bit of tweaking) . It would seem however, that my choice of 12 ply has resulted in a full size model.......which certainly wont be subtle........upon that little teapot.

Photos to follow shortly.

In other news, I am in a frenzy of de-cluttering. My brain can't cope with a "one room at a time" strategy - this seems too big and scary. So I am implementing the duck patented "10 things" program. Basically, every day I have to throw out, give away or otherwise remove from the premises 10 things. One week in and its working. By golly - its working.
That is all.

OH but wait, just one more thing. You know we love Leunig here. And here he has done it again. God bless Leunig. God bless the SMH for loving Leunig.

Duckwhistle Politics

In every human being
Is something we are not seeing
Down there in the muck
It is the inner duck!

So blow the duckwhistle gently
At least you can blow it mentally
And what you thought was lacking
Will gladly rise up quacking

And with this joyful meekness
And rounded yellow beakness
So beautifully unfurled,
Go out and love the world!
