Things change

Remember this?

The fleece stack non-organisation pile, behind the bar billiard table?

Not there any longer!

The fleeces are now sorted and labelled in cardboard boxes and neatly stacked beneath the work table in my craft room.


Now all that I have to do is to get some spun. I have fleeces labelled 2006… and there were M things in one of them. I now have the Rentokil m*** killer  paper strips inside each storage box. After all, that’s what I purchased them for – it was high time that I got around to deploying them.

That is not all that I have been busy doing. I have been catching up on stash photographs, focusing on the candidate yarns for the remaining Silk Road Socks (Flickr | Ravelry) These of course have long been protected by the holy trinity: cedarwood/lavender/Rentokil. I take no chances with my yarn stash!

The whole “O” business continues this weekend. We have the steam cleaner in the conservatory today, in a last ditch attempt to make the place presentable in readiness for next weekend’s Open Studio. Dear deity! I do so need to crack on with some carding/spinning/weaving before next Saturday. Oh, my. Wherever is the time going to?

BTW – have you seen my new toy?  It is soooo dinky!

Bare Naked

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. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. 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

Ah, the windy highway. The last time we came down here our awning blew open… Thankfully it’s not even close to being that windy today. Phew. Not so good now that the tolls have been removed and there are HGVs to contend with. A bit macho, your Spanish lorry driver.. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

Rather a different day today but still warm, with 24 degrees expected by the time that we reach Ribamar. Those Happy Hour beers will be tempting. Shopped this morning before leaving, to find the Christmas Turron had arrived overnight. I confess; we spent an inordinate amount on Turron and chocolate. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020
