Days out


I was at a loose end on Saturday so packed up my wheel and headed off into town, first stop was at the independent traders market for a coffee (accompanied by an Easter chocolate)

I sat spinning for an hour or so enjoying the sunshine before heading up to an Art Exhibition at the Nottingham Society of Artists.

Leaving the gallery, I realised that I could hear music coming from the castle so headed up to the cafe to have coffee and cake in the sun.

On Sunday we visited Papplewick Pumping station, our regular haunt on an Easter Sunday as that is when our membership is due.

Previous posts about the pumping station are here

As usual I took more photos but this time I decided to film a few seconds of the inside. WARNING you may want to turn down the volume for this one.

quick update


Just a quick update on fluffy things. I currently have more bags of fleece drying on the line ready to continue with the stash spin down as most of the yarn in the previous post has reached its new home which in turn means that I can buy some more dyes.

I forgot to take photos of the dyed yarn but will try and remember to do so with the next lot.

I have a very new, close neighbour who seems to be spending a lot of time peering into my kitchen window whilst moving in.

Yarn bombing seems to be in evidence round our local post office, I'm not sure who the culprits are but it made me smile.

In other fluffy goings on I seem to have volunteered myself to spin in a shop window, something that I haven't done for a few years. So Tuesday morning ,12 April , I will be sat in the window of Tiger Community Hub, Listergate, Nottingham with my trusty wheel.

I called in during the week as they only opened on Monday and had tea and cake ( red velvet cheesecake nom nom ) and spent some time knitting and chatting to the volunteers.

The community hub has been opened to create a welcoming, safe space for the community , with wellbeing activities and training for young people.

I will let you know how it goes.
