We have a bit of a mystery around here. When I came home from Florida there were 2 ties sitting on the table in the laundry room. One looked like my SIL would wear - very executive looking but along with it was a very unusual one that I took a pic of to show you. The mystery is my daughter (who unlike her Mother has a very good memory) says she did not put them there. Says she has never seen it before. Well I asked my son & DIL on the weekend if they had dropped them off and they both just laughed at me. Friends who know me know that I made a large wallhanging all out of silk ties and have used pieces in some of my other work - hence people giving me ties. They were the only ones in the house except the man that checks on it for us and he doesn't even know I sew. It is very unusual as you will see. It will solve itself sometime.

I have 2 very good giveaways to tell you about to-day. Vicki of - makes the most gorgeous birds nests out of fabulous yarn and is giving one away. Go to her blog and have a look. You will be amazed.

The other one is Alicia of - has put together a beautiful giveaway to celebrate her 300th. blog. I would like to win it myself.

Time to go and catch the end of the Chicago-Philly hockey game. I guess you can take us out of Canada but you can't take the hockey out of our Canadian blood. Go Hawks.

Hmmm...a burgler actually left you something - very odd in the burgling world I'm sure. Don't you love those puzzlements that drive you nuts wondering how they happened or who did it?

That is weird...and infuriating at the same time! We got home one day to find two books on our doorstep. One was mine that I'd lent to someone, and the other we'd never seen. I couldn't for the life of me remember who I'd lent my book to, but whoever it was obviously thought the second one was mine too. In spite of phoning everyone we knew, nobody claimed responsibility for leaving those books...this was several years ago, and we still don't know!

What do you make out of ties, Freda? I've got a bag full that I want to play with when I've got the time, and I have amassed heaps of ideas, but always welcome more!
