A gift

Merino/Tencel Fibre braid hand-dyed by Natalie Fergie
Merino/Silk Fibre braid hand-dyed by Natalie Fergie

I received a mystery parcel on Christmas Eve. A blue bag, from The Yarn Yard. Nothing I had purchased… it was marked not to be opened until Christmas and I was a good girl and I waited.

Inside was this braid  of Merino/Silk  fibre in a wondrous dye job. Natalie does it again!

The photo needs to be re-taken as it fails to do the colour justice. Just think “stormy winter Orkney sunset” and you’ll get the idea. It is just beautiful!

But who sent it?

Whoever you are – thank you very much indeed. You are as extravagant as you are thoughtful. This gift is very much appreciated. If you want to make yourself known so that I can say my thanks properly, you clearly already know how to reach me. If you want this to stay a secret, that’s OK too.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I shall start to spin this soon, but not just yet as I have work to do on my wheel (fitting the Jumbo flyer)

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home.

I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

La Cavalerie. We had been going to stay the night here, there’s both a cheese France Passion (we are in Roquefort country) and a CCP Aire. It’s a lovely little town. However with last night’s warning of tonight’s address from M. Macron… we are covering more ground in expectation of imminent travel restrictions. Just called… Continue reading October 28, 2020 at 12:31PM

Seeing some sensational autumn colours on this drive but finding it hard to capture what with all the bouncing, twisting and turning. Not to mention the crappy IG camera facility. #livereportingfromtheroad #france #autumn2020

    Yep – I’ll be working on improving the appearance of the navigation links, but perhaps not tonight.
