Wow, such a long time since I last posted! I have been quite busy of late, but am hoping to start catching up on my blogging again soon
This is a catch up post, such a lot has happened since I last posted! I have to see a pysio about my neck, as it is causing me real problems and pain, so hopefully the pysio can help with that I have flu at the moment, well, it is flu season, so that is to be expected I suppose, so keeping myself warm and hydrated, and spending time catching up All the animals are doing good, which I am so happy about And in general, life is good
The Shows I entered were wonderful, and I came placed 4 times! I got three 1sts, and one second! I entered the Herrington Village Show first, and got 1st’s on the two craft things I entered…
and for the Sunderland Horticultural Show, I entered the Venetian Opera Bag…
which came 2nd….
a jumper, which originally got 2nd ( as on photo ) but has now been bumped up to 1st, as the one that came first in the Show was disqualified….
and I also entered a floral corsage…
and a hat….
which did not come placed I really enjoyed the shows they were wonderful, and I can not wait to enter again next year
A lovely friend of mine is teaching me all I need to know about designing for myself, which I am finding wonderful! I have almost finished crocheting a cardigan of my own design, and am thrilled to be designing for myself, it is wonderful!
Have you seen the new style of Inside Crochet magazine? It is wonderful! A new publishing company have taken over this magazine, and it is just fabulous! The patterns in it are amazing, as are the articles, photography and layout of the magazine, I love it, and have earmarked so many patterns I want to do, lol, there is not enough hours in the day! But at least now I have the wool to do it! A few months ago, my local wool shop, Kemps, had a massive sale on, and were practically giving the wool away! They had bought all the stock from a closed down wool shop, and were selling it off super cheap, a 500g bag ( or more sometimes ) of wool for only £1.00, and they had all kinds of wonderful wool, mohair, pure wool, DK, aran, brushed wool, cotton, all kinds! So I was constantly in there ( as were so many others ) buying sack fulls at a time, lol, I got loads, so am delighted with my purchases, and now have a stash big enough to last a life time, lol …
There is a lot here, I know, and it looks like, with the amount I bought, I must of spent a fortune, but I didn’t, it was all so cheap, and too much of a bargain to pass up on So I was constantly in Kemps, when this sale was on, spending every spare penny I had on it, as this kind of bargain will never come around again! I got some cardboard boxes, and spent some time sorting it all out, according to colour, so when I want to do a project, it is easy to find I also labelled all the boxes, writing on each box how many number of balls of each type of wool is in there, eg 40 DK, 30 4ply ect… I do like to be organised, lol
Just a few examples ( above ) of my need to be organised, lol
Hasn’t this year just flown over! I can not believe Christmas will be upon us soon! Time to start on my Christmas crochet I think!
I am going to try my best to blog more regularly again, and read blogs again too So hopefully, I’ll be doing another blog post pretty soon
Until then, bye for now everyone, I hope you all have a wonderful day
