Wooooo hoooooo - I'm having fun!
I found the original Ghosties and Ghoulies quote in the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations. It actually reads:
"From ghoulies and ghosties and long leggety beasties and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us."
I'm going to put "ghosties" down the right hand side and "Ahoouououou" across the bottom. I can't get the whole quote in - there isn't enough room.
I've just done a search for ghoulies and ghosties and found this pattern by McCall's.
I finally managed to find a 1/4 inch foot for my sewing machine. It's actually for a Featherweight 221 but fits my "oddball" machine perfectly. Now that I know it's Featherweight 221 feet that fit my machine I can broaden my horizons a bit more and perhaps find a quilting foot too.
We had our first heavy frost this morning. They say that the first frost comes to this part of the Périgord on or about 5th November. Well, it's arrived! If you look close enough you may be able to see the leaves falling from the walnut tree - it was raining walnut leaves at 8.30 am.
DH and I went for a walk round Brantome the other day. I've been up to the top of this hill before, but have never had the camera with me.
Stunning, even if I say so myself *vbg*
Right - that's your lot for today. I've got buttons to sew on DH's PJ's for tomorrow and other bits and pieces. As from tomorrow evening I'm going on a 48 hour sew-a-thon - wooo hooo! His op is on Friday a.m and the clinique said he could be discharged on Saturday - we shall see - I think it is more likely to be Monday.
It's taken me 3 hours to write this post - the connection has been absolute rubbish these last few days. I've been commenting on some blogs, but by the time I manage to get to the comments page and write something, the connection slows right down and pfffffff - page gone and it won't reload!
