The one with knitting, (and a tiny bit of stash)
Here we are at the beginning of another week, we are fast approaching my daughter's wedding, three weeks yesterday we fly and I still haven't got a dress, eek!
I ordered three dresses last week, which have arrived today and I don't like any of them, so they will have to be returned tomorrow. I did order another one last night, fingers crossed that it will be ok because I'm running out of options and places to look now.
The weather was brilliant on Saturday so warm and sunny and not a sign of the wind we had on Friday and I'm so glad as I had a ticket for the Wool@j13 yarn show. Mark had said he would come with me so I didn't have to go on my own but in the end I said no, I didn't mind going alone so he stayed at home doing a few jobs in the garden. As it happened I sat with two lovely ladies when I stopped for a coffee and we had a lovely chat about yarn, projects and this and that, like me, it was their third visit to this particular yarn show which is only small compared to some but packed with lovely goodies.
I was quite selective with purchases, I walked around at least four times looking to make sure what I wanted to spend my money on, in the end this is what I bought.

Happy Bank Holiday
It's been a very busy Bank Holiday Weekend, starting with our meet up at the Nimble Thimble on Saturday. There was a meet up last year but I didn't go to that one so I haven't seen these ladies in at least two years, maybe longer. There was ten of us this time and It was lovely to be in the company of like minded people again and just to enjoy some uninterrupted stitching time.
The Nimble Thimble is situated on the Welsh boarder and just over an hours drive away, it's a lovely drive, mostly through beautiful countryside. The shop itself is in a lovely place by the river, with beautiful views all around.
