Oh where oh where are the days going!
My kitchen calendar is still on September, i feel like I missed out on October and now we are almost saying goodbye to November.
My eldest sister and my son in-law celebrated their birthdays this month, both of them were victims of a hand-made gift as part of their present.
Gavin is partial to cookies, so I put this together for him
Filled with home made cookies
And my sister is very fond of a hot water bottle, so I knitted this cover as one of her gifts.
I'm happy to say that both were well received.
Today we visited Ludlow for the Christmas Medieval market, which is held in the castle grounds.
At £11 each entry fee it was a bit steep, but seeing as there are not many shops in Ludlow itself and we had travelled almost an hour to get there we grudgingly handed over the money.
To be honest, it was no different to the food festival we went to there a couple of years ago, more or less the same stalls selling the same things, but with double the entrance fee.
You can see how busy it was outside and inside the marquees (if that's the right spelling) it was even more so.
(Ludlow Castle is where Henry VIII first born, Arthur and his bride Katherine of Aragon went to live after they married, and where he died)
There were the usual displays, but i did like this owl
We did manage a walk through the town, which is very pretty with it's black and white buildings
Joanne took this photo, she said it looked like Diagon Alley
And she wanted take Gavin's photo, but he likes having his photo take about as much as I do so we both just pulled a stupid face.
I do have some stitching updates to share but it's way past my bedtime now so I will leave those for next time.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend
