The Goofy Gang!

Meet Percival Brappleberry, Melvin Twiddlebritches and Duncan Dillywop!
New little mice that came together this weekend, I affectionally call them the "Goofy Gang." I had made these little sweaters a couple of weeks ago and knew that they were perfect for these three little mice.Well things are looking up, not only are my tomatoes ripening off nicely, it looks like my grapes are to. I can hardly wait to try some of these little goodies.The mailman brought me a wonderful surprise on Friday, a "just because gift" from my sweet daughter, and inside was..........all these lovely things, two pairs of aloe infused socks for my tootsies, a lovely little book written especially for someone who knits, and of course some delicious chocolate....she knows me so well, thank you angel.

I had a lovely weekend, I hope you did too!
