Happy Update

Where do I start ... Wonderwool was good fun, chatting to lots of people. I was good and didn't buy any yarn or fibre - I mainly came home with food, a drop spindle and a book on needle felting.
I also came back with a bad cold - spent a few days in bed trying to get rid of the snuffles.

Since then I have managed to knit a few things - I used most of my Colinette stash to make this throw...

It is taller than me (not difficult some of you might say !)

I have also managed to finish my Mermaid kit - sorry no photo, it is hiding in a partly undecorated bedroom...



On Friday I managed to go to the Quilt Show at Malvern.

I met up with Georgina, and we had fun discussing the various quilts on display.

We liked this one...













This was made up of very small appliqued leaves, they must have had to be very careful when applying them - if I tried I would have probably sneezed at the wrong moment !!
















This was amazing - an altar frontal

Fields and a river running through them...

I did come away with some material, somehow I needed some to help me use up some of the stash...

And the main reason why I have been away for so long is that I have been spending time making plans for the future.... Exciting times, lots of looking about on here and here
Only problem is trying to sell two houses and do lots of redecorating before then...

And yes I am very happy, he comes with his own spinning wheel (which he foolishly said he would like to learn how to use) and who knows one day we might actually manage to keep alpacas as well as chickens !!

it's not Terry Pratchett is it? ;-)
Your plans sound very exciting, goats would be good to keep too,if you chose the smaller Nubian type, and there's nothing like warm fresh eggs from your own pretty hens.
