Bowled Over

I  have a couple of gifts to show and tell today.

The other day I was working at my computer, making posters for tomorrow’s spinning demo at the Heritage Centre, when Mr L asked me if I was expecting anybody calling. I wasn’t. I was entirely surprised to find Jim, the chap who  turns wooden tools for  Sanday Spinners, at the door.  He said that he had heard I had admired a bowl of his at the Show this year and he’d come to ask if I would like it.

He also gave me its close twin. They are lovely little bowls

and just perfect for doing this

Well… I was just about bowled over!

You can see more of Jim’s bowls on the Sanday Spinners web site. I recommend shopping early for Christmas…

The second gift came on Saturday from my neighbour and fellow spinner, Rosemary

She has been experimenting with my description of Portuguese Knitting Pins/Yarn Hooks and brought a box full to the Open Studio for Gill and I to choose one each. So now I am all set to continue my PK experiments!

Well, I count myself a lucky girl to be so favoured. Beautiful gifts!

There will be WIPpage tomorrow. I promise.

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
