Winter Warmers


Textile Therapy
Wool Gathering coming up on Sunday 3rd - It's going to be a lovely gathering as there are old faces and new coming along for the day to spin and stitch and knit and sew. Everyone's welcome.

Well we've had more snow and ice and wind and rain. The occasional dry hour or two but nothing that makes you feel like staying out there for long. Ash is oblivious to any weather except sleet so she certainly sees no reason for curtailed exercise. However, the arrival of a new puppy at the end of February will soon sort her exercise requirements..... retribution time!
Sadly for my ever-expanding waistline, winter weather plus a new big kitchen equals an excuse to bake and yup, here are the tamarillos again! Two of them were combined with apple and dates into mini muffins. There were lots more muffins but they were less photogenic...
The shop has been updated with the completed baby socks and my kantha bags so do drop by for a closer look sometime. Here's a heffalump one gracing one of my treasures - the little rush seated Arts and Crafts type chair with the wavy back which was my great aunt's.

Oh welcome back online, and thank you for the card and lovely letter - as you can imagine I had all kinds of good intentions of writing back, but fainted at the thought of having to write something other than a shopping list by hand...

Can I ask...where and what is WoolGathering? I live up in East Lothian, but I'm always interested in reasonably local events.

I've e-mailed you, Mrs Fishwife, and it would be grand if you fancied coming along to join us.

Cold weather always makes me want to cook (and eat!)...

Love your new banner design. Good luck with the puppy! I can't even imagine having another 'baby' around...
