Hi De Hi

Helloo everybody, I am still here just been very busy. The garden is a major time guzzler and I am working on a new crochet project. I hope that this will be finished by early next week so that I can share.
I missed knit and natter on Tuesday, although Ben was very much better I did not want to leave him. I did do my run out to Llandybie on Wednesday and as Ben was fine I dropped my passenger off and went on to visit the wool shop in Llandeilo. Good job I did, the new quilting shop "Flying Geese" was open. It was their first day and I was their first customer, a little bag of bargains. I did not take photos as they were still filling shelves but I will tell you this. They have Moda Scrap Bags for £10, fat quarters in bundles of 5 for £10 and I bought some Makower fabric for £10 a metre. I will be popping in next week and will ask about photos then. They are on the main street about 10 shops past the wool shop.

.......... Break to charge the battery on the laptop and get dinner on the go, Prawn curry very tasty.

I have been watching more podcasts, Amy at Love made my home has made several now and there are various others, craft and gardening mostly. The main ones however have been the series from Crafternoon Treats, mostly crochet but some knitting. One in particular caught my interest, the fat bottomed Bag made for a Marie Curie raffle. It was a version of the pattern made by Marinke Slump, AKA Wink who sadly died far too young. I followed her blog for ages and have made many of her patterns. 
Anyway this version was made in the Marie Curie colours and was stunning. I decided that I wanted one and it is almost finished. I have also decided to make one for charity, after careful consideration I have one in mind and will be contacting them next week to see if they are at all interested. Watch this space.

Apart from that I have made a start on the sleeves for my jumper and tried out a shawl pattern. I like the pattern and just have to decide what yarn and what colour, the ball that I used on the trial run is far too itchy for me. I found it when having a turf out, I have no recollection of buying it but must have done at some point. I will use it for something or send it off to the CS.

It is far to late to write more tonight, have a good weekend wherever you may be.
