Not much Sewing done..

Not much sewing done indeed, but plenty of knitting.
Half way through I thought
"Why, oh why, did I choose 2ply yarn to make this shawl", but on reflection, now that it is finishes and  in the process of being blocked, I am quite pleased I did.

It was very difficult to photograph, as you can see, and seemed never ending while knitting. But it is finished and thats another thing off my to Do list..

Good things have happened this week.
On my blog list, you will find Patchwork Allsorts and Christine was having a give- a- way, and as I usually comment on her blog( she does such lovely work), I was thrilled when I won the Appliqué Art book which Christine was giving away..

 The author is Abigail Mill and a lot of her inspiration comes from Suffolk which was fun for me as you know we live in Suffolk.

Our last guests ever came to stay in our little cottage yesterday. They are friends and came with a lovely gift of Suffolk Black Bacon, Oh! My it was delicious we had it for breakfast.

Though it is a little sad that we will not be continuing to let out the cottage, we have met some lovely people over the last 17 years and we will miss that. 
 We will not miss changeover day when we morph into a couple of chars...

There will be more time for sewing and knitting and of course the Garden..

Stay safe and keep stitching...................Doti...
