Looking for something portable, light and easy to do in the heat I picked up the Rico Fashion Modern Tweed vest pattern R1906 in Mustard to finish. The pattern is one that finishes about the model’s belly button so, knowing I like about a 16 inch side seam, I added a fair bit to the… Continue reading Summer Rolls On
Being in the Wars
Well we’ve had a few weeks of strangeness starting with John and a nosebleed. Not just any nosebleed of course. His has to involve blood vessels well up into the sinus cavity and being on two types of blood thinners. Then there was the no response from 111, 999 having a 4 hour minimum ambulance… Continue reading Being in the Wars
April Round Up
I've been meaning to write a blog post for ages but just haven't done it. I thought I'd better try and do one before the end of the month at least. First a quick round up of Crochet-a-Longs and Stitch-a-Longs. The Stitching Cabin Nordic Winter SAL is now up to band 4. I'm using a… Continue reading April Round Up

As I'm sure you can imagine most time this past month has been taken up with Gwyn. Teaching her the basics before she knows different is quite a chore. She has tried the pre wash cycle already. At the beginning of the month I signed up to Laura Kemshall's 31 days of Art Journaling. I… Continue reading Spring is Springing

I managed to finish off the last of the silk thrums with two more bowls and a couple of placemats. What I was most happy about is that a good sized carrier bag of stuff just sitting in the way is now used up and useful!! Well I had the smallest amount left which went… Continue reading December Almost There
A Catch-up Round-up.
These past couple of months have been extremely hard. Having to make the decision for Ellie when she was still so bright in herself nearly totally broke me. John is still struggling with balancing his meds to have some sort of life. Breathing is often quite a challenge for him especially first thing in the… Continue reading A Catch-up Round-up.
On to November!
Oh my! Where did October go? Mind you, if I spend a little time looking back through, it was a good month. John and I spent a lot of time pottering around, slower than normal, starting to put the garden to bed for the winter, always quite a long chore anyway. We have some huge… Continue reading On to November!
