Episode 15 – Pacing Myself.

We’re all enjoying the garden at the moment after a couple of trips away.

During my visit home, I managed to uncover some old family crafing materials from some of the ladies I have wrote about in “The Work of Our Ancestors”

I’m keeping my tasks simple for a while in order to get things finished, but I will be attempting a dress for my cousin’s wedding next month. I will be working on my “Pretty Me” cardigan until I pick up my next knitting project!

I have some gorgeous alpaca to admire (until I have enough done to start a new project) from from Satomi of  Japanese Handmade. Check out her bags on Etsy. They are so pretty! She will soon be putting up a yarn shop and I will keep you updated about that!

My latest enjoyable read was A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowan

I’ve been watching Gavin and Stacy, Game of Thrones and to accompany my cardi knitting, I’ll be watching season 4 of Call the Midwife.

Hoping to talk to you all again soon 🙂

    Those patterns bring back memories to me. The one is a bell-bottomed jump suit, very popular in the late 60’s, early 70s. (I graduated in 1973)
    Enjoy gardening, and take plenty of photos. Yes, sometimes taking pictures keeps you from enjoying the scenery, but oh, the lovely memories you will have when you get old. 🙂

    Romans 10:8-13

      Nancy, I secretly do like the bell bottomed jumpsuit :). I think you have to be tall to really pull it off though, and I’m only 5’2″!!
      I am sooooo enjoying our garden. October is unbelievably beautiful and raking up the leaves with colours around you has become a meditation for us.
