Softpots

Tony and I attended a ‘softpots’ workshop with ‘Annie Softpot’… (google it) and learned how to make beautiful plantpots from nylon stockings.  I have just put them outside in my garden as they were starting to take over the house.  I have three more in my kichen. I think these outdoor ones make a lovely colourful addition to my garden.

My lovely new kitchen

In July I had a major flood in my kitchen which ruined the old one completely.  This past fortnight I have had a team of Kitchen fitters in ripping the old one back to bare plaster and floorboards.  This is how the new looks right now. Hopefully it will get finished off today and then the decorators can come in and paint it all. I love how neatly the central heating boiler has been boxed in. The top part is simply a loose open topped box to allow for air flow

The Graduate

Hello everyone.  What a strange year I have had since I Iast posted. My ex husband died and left his house to our son Alexander.  It has taken a huge amount of work to make it habitable.  Alexander moved into the house with his girlfriend about 6 weeks ago.  Then last week he graduated from university with a first class honours degree in music technology He has set up his own business doing the lighting and sound for music events and it seems to be working well so far. Tony and I are empty nesters now and my craft stash has expanded to fill aAlexander’s old room.

The Yarn Bomb

We have had great fun this morning yarn bombing our local railway station.  This is just a small selection of photo’s. The bottom picture shows boats knitted by an 85 year old man from my local wood carving club.  Bert is an amazing knitter and once knit me a whole veg basket full of fuit and veg for a veg competion that I was running… it really was the star of the show amongst all the homegrown produce.
