It's that time of year again...............


Would anybody like to join me again in putting twenty-four little Christmas pictures on their blog as if it were an Advent Calender?

Next Monday is 1st December which means we start opening doors on the advent calendar!  Do any of you remember Advent calenders without chocolate?  I used to love opening each door to see what the little picture that was hidden behind.  
Chocolate Advent calenders were quite expensive in the sixties, that is if they even existed then!

Would anybody like to join in posting a christmassy picture everyday from 1st December to 24th December on their blog as if it were an Advent calender.  It could be a wintry scene, it could be just a picture of a Christmas card, anything leading up to 24th December.  There are lots of Christmas pictures online, or it could be something from YouTube, or just a Christmas picture of your own 

It would be lovely if lots of people can join in........... Just leave a comment and I will list you all who are joining in.


1) You don't have to follow this blog if you would like to join in but would be rather nice if you were.....

2) Put a photo of something christmassy on your blog everyday from 1st to 24th December.  
This can be from the computer, You Tube, or your own personal pictures.

3) Have fun choosing pictures and go and see what others have put

Fair Isle Knitting

I have just finished knitting a cardigan for my eldest grand-daughter.  I started it a few months back but didn't like the way it looked, so I unpicked it, and re-knitted it.  I made it up as I went along.  I wanted it to look authentic vintage, with set-in sleeves so with various patterns to hand here is the result.  Every row is different.

It is based on this vintage knitting pattern, copies of which can be puchased here

This one took me three months now I am going to try and knit her brother a similar jumper in six weeks its a good job I wrote the pattern down as I went.

If any body is interested in my pattern please email me.

A few weeks back we journeyed to Wells. For a city it was quite lovely and quite small.

Not much to say at moment..............

Does anyone else get like this?  Go for days and not have much to say, or has a lot to say and the words do not flow properly.....................  Well I'm having a phase just like that at the moment.  I will be back because we went to Dingles the fairground museum the other day and have lots of photos to show. 

In the meantime I will show the lovely little bunch of flowers my friend Jane gave me last night.
Thank you Jane
