Last summer my daughter was helping at a Summer festival that she goes to called ‘Joust’ and she sent me an email with a copy of a photograph she had taken of a lady in a crochet top she had admired because “I thought you’d like to see it.” Always on the look out for… Read More Something for my Daughter
I have finally finished part six of the Sacred Space blanket CAL. The really crazy thing is that having finished the corner with the cream yarn, now that I had it. I realised that I had followed the colour choices for this part of the pattern slavishly, in that the last two rows were in… Read More Sacred Space part 6
Going to make a montage for November I realised that I do not have ones for either September or October. Now these montages are made as much for myself as for others because they are an excellent way to find out when I made a particular thing.

It was hard to take photographs of this journey because of the movement and where we were sitting but I include… Read More Rhine Cruise – the mountains.
After having arrived in Basel the next morning we were taken by coach to Lucerne. This is the first sight we saw. We wandered through a busy market. I thought it was a shame we would be fed so well that there was no point in buying anything.Then Catherine and I decided to cross the… Read More Rhine Cruise – Lucerne
I finished parts three and four a while ago but thought I would wait to update you all. Especially as I get the feeling that this is maybe of interest to less people. Notes for part 3 I had a fairly clear idea of what I wanted for this part but was following the pattern… Read More Sacred Space parts 3, 4 and 5
I have spent this summer waiting for my energy levels to stop being extremely variable and unpredictable so I could have some interesting outings. Unfortunately I waited all in vain; however I was also being careful not to risk a Chronic Fatigue major relapse because I was going on a river cruise with my eldest… Read More Almost Adventures
