This may (or may not be?) a very British post. Along with many people around the world, I LOVE a nice “cuppa”! I’m a firm believer in the power of a cup of tea…. Feeling sad? Cup of tea will sort that! Friends round? Get the kettle on!! Feeling cold? ohh a nice cuppa will […]
Yesterday, the weather was cold and wet. Today, Remembrance Sunday, is much nicer. It is a typically cold November morning but the sun has come out. I love sunny winter days, I get to put on my hand-knits and go out for a lovely walk. So lets get started with walking and podcasts Sometimes I […]
Hello crafty friends! I’ve been VERY busy recently knitting away at my one project so I’ve not had much to share in the way of progress. Sorry! On Saturday I had a big family gathering in my (not so big!) house. I’m very lucky and all my lovely family bought wine and chocolates to help […]

Instagram, for those times when you don’t have a whole lot to say, but the picture is pretty….!

Today the sun stayed out long enough for a visit to the local “Art in the Park” festival in Leamington Spa.
Strange title for a post I know, I don’t really have anything to say but I’m interested in your responses. I’ve used Ravelry for a while and LOVE it. I’ve not explored the groups / forums side of it though and to be honest I’m not sure where to start. There seem to be so […]
