IN 2017....

...I tried really hard to use up fabric and wool from my stash ... SO because of this when I saw a club from  THE KNITTING GODDESS  that was a collection of wool/yarn with a shawl pattern from 6 different designers .... come on ! It had my name on it .. and I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good in 2017!! lol 

So I jumped in ... the first instalment came yesterday..




OH! I soo want to start! HOWEVER I am not back to fracture clinic until tomorrow ......


HAD to wind them .. just to be ready you understand!! lol x I have printed the pattern .. and found the needles... just to be ready you understand!!

My grandson..came to spend a day and a night ...


..sadly (for us) he will be returning to Australia on Friday .. gosh the time has just flown away x I don't know when he will be back .. and with the "trip/slip/ggrr" I have not seen so much of him as I would have wished .. Hey-Ho it has been wonderful to have him here x

To-day I had this wonderful delivery..



......from the committee and ladies of Sandbach Quilt group .. SO beautiful x Flowers really lift the spirits .. don't they? 

Off for a brew and to stroke my wool!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol x

Have a fun day

Diane x

Those yarns are luscious! I know what you mean about the holiday time going way too fast with loved ones. I'll be visiting my daughter in a few months so that made the parting easier. I hope your appointment tomorrow at the fracture clinic goes well!

Family time is the greatest and really appreciated when long travels are included. Interesting how a ball of wool or a piece of fabric can call out to you until you respond. May your new year be warm and cozy.

Hi Diane, I've been reading your posts and sadly not commented sew decided from the start of this year would try and change that...
Sew sorry to read about your arm but great it's healing ..
lovely to have had family from down under but time time passes too quickly and they need to go home..
Beautiful yarn and I look forward to seeing what you create....

Good on you for joining the wool club, lots of lovelies to look forward to arriving in the mail at yours this year. Great colours. Sad to see your grandson head back to Aus, hopefully he keeps in touch with skype. Xx
