The blocking press that is. Round 16 is done at last. I'm quite excited to see it spread out like this, after it has been a jumble in my lap for nearly two weeks. I probably won't manage to finish round 17 before 18 comes out, but that's no matter, I'll get there.

I've been working on masks again, I've just delivered another ten. Same as before, so not very exciting.
I did whip up a few tatted earrings for last Saturday's market. I even sold a pair!
The pair on the left are muskaan's pattern, which is here. The others are my dewdrop pattern, link on the right side bar. The pair I sold were dewdrops, with red beads.

Jack is growing Cape Gooseberries in his vegetable garden. He had visions of shelves full of gooseberry jam. Alas, the bushes are not producing well. But he did manage to bring in 300g of fruit yesterday:

My plan was to tat earrings for a market on Saturday. Beaded crochet rope doesn't really lend itself to the making of earrings, but I'm told they should be good sellers at a market, so I thought I'd try tatted earrings and see what happened. Mmm. I got an urgent order for masks. Obviously a definite order that is going to be promptly paid for must take precedence over speculative market items! Whether I'll get time to make a few before Saturday remains to be seen, but the masks are done and have been delivered.
