Hi, I mentioned a few posts ago that I needed to destash and sort out and try and get from this

to something more reasonable,
well, along the way I sorted out these bags of magazines and and fabric awaiting new homes

and the room now looks like this:-)

feels so much better!!!

This weekend has been busy with a lace guild meeting, the clean up and multiple phone calls to find out what has happened to the new cooker (still awaiting delivery) I now need to catch up with my e-mails and finish spinning the orange fluff in the container next to the wheel.

Talking about wheels, mine now has a sheep, just sort of jumped in our shopping trolley along with the weekly shop on Friday!

Knitting lessons continue

I'm determined to learn a few more stitches so that I can use some of my hand spun yarns so I have joined a newbie lace knitters group on Ravlery and just completed the first project.

My creation

I'm feeling quite proud ot this one :-)

By the way, the snow has now gone, the bus is running again and hopefully things will now get back to normal for a while.

Have a great weekend.

Happy New Year


Happy New Year!!

Just curious but how many of us are reaching the same big birthday this year? Not sure how I will be celebrating in a few months time but suspect it will involve tents, muddy fields and motorbikes. So has anyone any grand plans for their 50th birthday this year?

Anyway, quick post as I need to reduce my workroom from this

2010 blog photos

to something I can work in .

Anyone need any fabric:-)
