Andy has always loved sport of any kind. But, football... Well that is in a different league.
It will be a football fest in our house for the next month. That is fine by me. I zone out, mumble at appropriate junctures and get crafting.
Now I should be showcasing William's monster quilt. But, I am a total butterfly and can't bear to take it off the bed at the moment. Thank you all my lovely followers for metaphorically holding my hand during its creation. A poem about Fred,Ted,Ed and Ned is in it's infancy. I think it will make a perfect bedtime read whilst nestled under the downy softness of the quilt.
Andy's sister Beverley has just moved into our village and she had never visited one of my favourite places in the whole world. Cornwall. So we decided to take her this last week. It showed itself off at its best. Stunningly beautiful. Walking bliss... I could go on and on. We were based in a mobile home near Padstow and I loved every minute.
The clouds were amazing and made for perfect walking weather. Beverley having spent the last ten years in Scotland considers the South West to be almost Meditteranean!
Padstow and the River Camel.
It was perfect. Picture perfect. Pasty perfect. Cornish Cream Tea perfect and as the Cornish would say
" we'll come again dreckly!"
My mind has been whirring since our return about twine from material.
Recently I saw this on Pinterest.
I woke up in the night last night and spent a gentle hour visualising my stash. I have so many odds and ends that would be perfect.And a few birthdays coming up. The parcels will look extra quirky tied up with fabric twine I think.
My first attempt this morning was too loose. I will not give up but sound on the you tube video would help!
But, I did love the effect plaiting produced. I was plaiting away accompanied by blackbird song this morning early. The football fanatic was still asleep ... Some of these games are on VERY late!
Lots of lovely wishes to you all x
