Hi me again, beautiful sunshine still, your roses are lovely KQ, they will be a real show soon. My kumquat tree has arrived that sister Julie bought me. It is staying at n the conservatory at the moment I must look up how to look after it.


My fascinator arrived too pic below it has a tear drop shape and an Alice band fixed to it , I love it. Here also is WIP tea cosy I am putting Irish crochet all over it and have to find a pattern for a little fairy cottage.


It will be a Christmas present for my daughter-in-law she collects tea cosies, Ah well best get on .

Afternoon ladies. Its dry but still dull and a tad nippy. My afternoons are so empty without Sophie but I suppose it gives me a chance to do a bit knitting or hooky - hooky won today  :)


I saw a flower on a russian blog but it only has a diagram and trying unsuccessfully to work it out.


Linda what pattern have you used for your flower for teacosy - it looks similar I think? Love the fascinator its a gorgeous colour


Suzy you can send them direct to NHAP, 21 Tweed Street Chopwell Gateshead NE17 7DL if you include your name in parcel please.  That way if you ever make anything else for them (I know you have soooo much free time with nothing else to do :lol: ) you have the address. If ever you go on Facebook they have a page Needles Hooks Angels and Preemies.


Lisa everyone has given good advice - food use by dates and how reality won't set in until the funeral - all you can do is be there when you can and keep in touch when you can't.

With regards to goodbye at chapel - you have to do what you want to do not what other people say - you may regret your decision in the future 


My wonderful hubby has just made me a coffee bless him.  Better go and seek out a biccie to go with it.


Catch you later   :)

Hello again, I did take more photos of my roses out today but it won't let me upload them. I think there may be to many images in my files, I know before I had to delete some photos from my file but can remember how to do it.


Denise thanks for the address, as it happens I will be having more time on my hands from July. I am semi retiring and only doing one day a week to sign off accounts and sign cheques etc.


Pleased you like your hotel Eliza, the Shakespeare thing may be to do with his 400th anniversary. As they say "once more into the breech dear friends, once more'.


Your fascinater is a gorgeous colour Linda, such a vibrant blue. The tea cozy is lovely and I'm sure you could design a fairy house for the top of your other one.


Lisa do what you feel is right, don't listen to what others want you to do.


I'm going to see an orchestra tonight where the musicians are all pupils at a special school for severely disabled children. By using internet knowledge it will pair them up with the Halle orchestra to play the pieces.


Have a good evening x
