A house with a walled garden, softened by hedges and a new wisteria. I live surrounded by auction finds, other treasures, stores of food, stocks of wine, too many clothes, walls of books and pictures... and rooms filled with comfort and activities. I share all this with DJ and the cat. I paint, I cook, I travel and I walk. Read more on my blog...Withinthewalledgarden.blogspot.com

I had a desire to get the wheel out and spin up some yarn to knit a jumper. I haven't been successful at clothes lately. Because I have put on weight, hand knitted items tend to make me resemble a sack of potatoes and are finished and then put aside. I've done some lovely throws and bags though!
I've spun some plain white and some marled yarn from the white and a bag of special fibre; camel/silk/merino/mohair mixture. The start of the jumper is very encouraging so now I must finish the spinning and the winding of all the wool before the new kitty arrives. As you can see...small kitty, big feet. This one will grow a bit yet.
We have a trip to France before we can pick her up for good and are practising our French over meals.
This is a two sided stand-up book and one person gets the question side and the other gets the answers. So we take it in turns, Some of it might be useful. We also bought a cool bag with a big union jack on the top (everything seems to have a union jack/flag on it somewhere) so we shall be known around the campsite as "Les Anglaises".
C'est la vie
