Waylaid in Blogland

Still here, still paddling furiously to keep head above water...
No textile masterpieces to show off, just paint spattered clothes and a headache from some very smelly floor tile grout today!
VERY SOON, the cottage will be finished. Meanwhile, if you promise to give useful feedback, you can read all about The Old Tearoom right HERE!
There will be more pics on the site soon, just need to iron some curtains, concrete a ramp, paint the corridor, find some...

Rainbow Daze

Spring is sprung, the grass is riz. I've seen my first primroses, the snake's head fritillaries are out in a wee corner of the garden, I've had a birthday and I still have not planted any seeds.

Today was a Woolgathering and we managed quite a few stitches between us, in all sorts of different projects. I came away with more yarn, and a knitting magazine, sold eggs and fibre, ate cake and biscuits and drank tea. The sun streamed in the window onto a big jug of daffodils gracing the work table.

I feel altogether lighter after a day like today (in mood, not in body, due to the cake and biscuit element). Mind you. with socks like these to have and to hold, can you blame me? Knitted by the lovely Jess from yarn dyed by Wild Fire Fibres, they remind me of rainbow drops sweets we bought when we were kids.
