A bit o’ the old blighty

A bit of the old blighty has landed in my lounge room, it is 18 inches wide, high and deep and it holds treasure.

Woollie treasure!

And I am in love…..

I have stored all my precious wool in there, Debbie Bliss, Jo Sharp, Rowan etc. and it is overflowing.  I have decided I am a yarnaholic as I could have filled at least three or more of these cubes.  I am NOT buying anymore yarn.  I went through all my yarn and have sorted out some that I will never use…it came with ‘ The Art of Crochet’ magazine, so am going to donate it all to a Cherry Tree Shop as Gem calls them.  I am sure someone will love a big bag of yarn to practice with.  I also included the squares I crocheted, plus other granny squares and some other yarns.

I have been involved in a ‘Jar of Love’ swap that Katie hosted and now that my partner has received her jar, I can show you what went into it.  The rules were at least 5 items and one had to be handmade.

I ended up with 25 things in and on the jar…Phew!!! I had made the cloth, heart and lace bookmark.  My swap partner was Amanda and am happy to report she was pleased with her goodies 🙂  Mine should arrive this week and I am so excited to see what a jar from Spain holds.

Yesterday was a beautiful day, the sun was shining, it was around 16 deg, I had doors and windows open, it felt like Spring had come visiting and very welcome it was too.  I am wishing all my UK friends a very happy summer holidays, lets hope the SUN shines everyday.

Thank you for all your lovely comments once again, I really appreciate them, they help me get through some uckity times.

Big hugs

Sandi xoxo
