york and appy feet

fish spa

hi all
just come back from a few days away in York in our caravan of course.
Treated my hubby to a session at Appy Feet . For those of you who don't know this is where you sit with your feet in a fish tank and all the fish nibbles at the hard skin on your feet hence the photo of the fish.

It is a strange feeling, first instinct is to lift your feet up for the tickling to stop.
The results are very good highly recommended.

Didn't do much crocheting, lots of reading. but i did get to make this fringe, from a pattern in my new crochet book, so simple but so effective.

Now the question is what can I use it for ?
I could use it as a border for my Flower bed blanket But that will take ages and goodness knows how much wool I will need.
If you haven't already hop over to
to see lots of crochet projects and details of my wip.

If I could re blog to here then you you wouldn't have to go over there lol
I'm sure there must be some way of doing that but I don't do technical stuff.

I finished reading My Sisters Keeper , a brilliant story, a shocking ending, If you can call it shocking, a great read.
 Pity we aren't in York in April because the author is doing a book signing at Waterstones.

Well I've had my fix (blogging)

It looks like lots of fun I got the idea from Esther hop over
 another great blog

bye for now
don't forget all comments gratefully received

book signing

To celebrate World Book week I dragged my hubby to a book signing and talk at Waterstones Doncaster.
Never having been to any of these before we arrived quite early expecting a queue, we were the first there.
We were given a free book Beloved by Vintage Morrison (all free books gratefully received)
Four authors attended, among them Ian Clayton who's book Our Billie has been on my wish list ever since it was published.
He gave a short talk on his other re published book Bringing It All Back Home
( the perfect book for anybody who defined their life through music and the memories of their youth) Joanne Harris
I bought two Billie Books one for myself and the other for my sister-in -law and Ian kindly signed them both.

One of the other authors was Stephen Wade who talked about his experiences.

I bought Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths in and around Doncaster for my hubby to read next week while we are away in our caravan.

A very enjoyable night out getting to meet Ian Clayton, buying new (signed) books and also my hubby buying me a new crochet book.

Cate's Crochet Blog: Adorable Crochet Video

Cate's Crochet Blog: Adorable Crochet Video

Just seen this amazing crochet video that I just had to share with you all
Thanks Cate


hi I've just been over to post on the flower bed if you haven't already,  go and visit now to view some amazing flowers and if its not too late for you to join in the fun.

These are the flowers i experimented with for my blanket, but I wasn't happy with them, I'll keep them tho for coasters or something.
Wasn't too sure about the colours and the size.

I finally crocheted one that I am quite happy with so had to make another two and join them together, now I have decided on the colour combination i am going with (I think)
This is the start of my Flowerbed Blanket which, when finished, is going everywhere with us, in our caravan.

Once again the pictures don't really justify the colour ,but this is it.

also do you like the basket I crocheted to put my wip in ?
I was thinking about decorating the outside of it but it looks good as it is

Okay off to do the dreaded Ironing as we are going to York next weekend for a few days in our caravan (first outing this year)

Plan to  crochet plenty more flowers while I am there, only don't tell the hubby
