Bits and bobs

My new toy.

I love it ,look what is does,

How can a yarn lover manage without one of these

Before photo, bought these skeins from Lisa, who owns fortheloveofyarn, I met her at Yarndale, and bought one of Lisa's handmade crochet hooks lovely wool, but look at the mess I've got them into , mind you it didn't help with taking them on holiday with us , just in case,

After photo

So I was hooked, again

I just love how it winds yarn so easily and neatly .

This is the start of a new baby blanket for a friend .

So in between crocheting blankets and winding yarn ,, I've no time to go to work .

And I've finally overcome the linking up , I think it works

Wear a poppy with pride

It's that time of the year again to wear your poppy with pride.

This is a special poppy made by melliemoo. , all donations are of course going to The Poppy Appeal , pop over to Melanie' s to see some great crochet work.

Apologies for the photo but I,m sure Melanie will have some better ones.


So will you be wearing your hand made, or other poppy with pride ? I will

Blackpool and the lakes

A few days in Blackpool to blow the cobwebs away , it has really been cleaned up especially the sea front and around the tower ,

Even the trams are new and modernised, we had a trip up to the market and I managed to restrain myself from stocking up on more wool.

Apologies for the photos overload

This was the view from the top of the tower, with its new glass floor and windows, this is a collection of sayings from all the famous people, can you enlarge this and read them ??

The ballroom was a treat didn't get to see Hayley and Roy though

Nighttime and a few of the famous lights

These last two are for my pirate loving grandson

Then it was upto the lakes , and a drive to bowness on Windermere


Fortunately we managed to choose the best day , it was like a summer day, we also visited Kendal which had some lovely craft and yarn shops,

Our early morning visitor

November tomorrow
