The Greatest Show on Earth

Roll up, roll up!

Fantastic feats of daring.

Glitter.

Glamour.

A colourful display to remember for the rest of your life.

Danger!

Novelty!

Yes,  your woolgatherer is…. performing amazing feats with a {gasps from the audience} crochet hook!

At the moment we are hoping to go out for at least one night every week in continuing efforts to break the cats in (or down!) Mr Snail was cleaning the bathroom. Although we haven’t used the shower we had… Continue reading Van Nessa : Her Leak
