"Men plan, God laughs" - Yiddish ProverbIt seemed very fitting for my situation and then for some reason random quotes started coming into my head.
"The best laid schemes of mice and men / Go oft awry" - Robert Burnsand my personal favourite:
"Everybody's got plans... until they get hit." - Mike TysonMy magic timetable went completely out of the window this week when one thing after another went pear shaped. I was on schedule up to and including Wednesday but then when I went to knitting club on Thursday night I didn't get home until after 10 which meant I couldn't finish my Ellie tea cosy.
Then, on Friday, I couldn't get drunk and fall over because I had to go to work on Saturday. The final disaster was when I discovered that mum had let a friend borrow the Tilda book so I couldn't make the elephant toy.
I did manage to finish elephant version 2. He's a much better overall shape
and now he fits my tea pot perfectly
but I think that elephant version 1 is cuter. Proportionally the original elephant's head was larger which made him look more of a baby.
So I think I'll have to have another go at the design. It's not so much of a problem because I have a queue of people willing to give them homes.
I'm having quilt cravings now. I'm going to have to make something bigger than a tea cosy soon or I'll go mad.
