Hello I am Back

Hi I am back the blog is fixed thanks to the guys at  WordPress.

My weekend was really good and we had a good time at The threshing barn check out other courses here  at http://www.threshingbarn.com/  and I was amazed to find an amazing lady in my class called Sharon, and not so long ago her work was in the daily press illustrating a most amazing wedding dress that she not only designed but made as wellfrom the yarn from her own sheep ,also all the grooms waistcoats and embroidery.Press can sometimes omit to name designers which is a shame because Sharon is one very talented lady–at lunchtime we all had alook on the computer at the amazing dress here it is for you

Sharon can be found at http://www.greengatewools.co.uk an amazing designer and knitter,I was honoured to have her doing ‘on the edge’.

My ladies all made a miniature ‘on the edge’ and will now practise and later will emerge’ on the edge ‘  socks so thank you to all of you for a great day and we as a group decided to START a KAL which is short for knitalong and we will do a garter stitch jacket with a fab large button fastening ,so ladies I will be in touch when I have set up our group site so we can all post .'on-the-edge'-ladies

Sunday became a very different day, quite rural as my lovely mother in law had a disaster in her garden with a very old tree deciding to send some branches downwards crashing through a lovely cypress and making quite a mess.This is what we saw when we arrived yesterday with our new chainsaw –just love this piccie of Mum with the 2 old saws

Well later in the day after a  marvellous bonfire lit by yours truly —ooh i love bonfires ‘no’ in fact i love all fires, my dear dad was a chief fire officerso think he passed his love onto me,  he made sure we all knew how to safely have garden fire and it was a good one and the garden looks a lot better .

We left some branches on the floor with a lot of leaves pushed under so hopefully we will get a hedgie  come to stay.

So a busy weekend but a good one –back soon
