Other problem is tablet keeps say "sorry internet has stopped", too frustrating.

Good morning all, very warm and still here, the flipping pigeons have eaten all the leaves off our crop of little cauliflower plants just the stalk left so we covered them with wire netting and will hope they grow some leaves from the stalks.


Everything else is doing well, the melons tomatoes and courgettes are loving the atmosphere in the poly tunnel


Eliza your alternative embroidery is fantastic and so unusual, I will have to look up on alternative embroidery I t looks as interesting as free form crochet to me. The mill I would love to visit sounds like a really interesting place for inspiration. And a good day out.


I have started what you might call an alternative crocheted tea cosy, no pattern just designing it as I go along to match the pink and green tea pot flower stand.


Well we are leaving the EU so "Rule Brittania". Let's get on with it and make the UK great again "all for one and one for all". I watched the Muskateers on catch up last night that was made on location in the Chzek republic it was very good and I enjoyed it.


Will go and do some more chores and carry on crocheting. Have a lovely day.

Hello! It's raining here! :D I got into town, blue skies fading to filthy black, and been home 10-15 mins and the heavens opened. :)


Eliza, the alternative embroidery is gorgeous! Reminds me a little of the collage work we did at primary school. So much fun. I hope it helps you feel better. Very exciting to see the poms too - the mill buildings are beautiful. :)

Stakreem, my mind has gone blank - oh free-style crocheting! Enjoy yourself. :)


Fingers crossed there are 2 pics of my lace in progress: 1 with bobbins ready to start and the other with part done lace - you'll need to zoom in to see the pattern. :)
