A lovely easy Saturday

Ooops tried to blog this straight from photo-bucket but methinks photos are a bit on the large size! - Oh well hope you like them!!! (let me know if you can't see them 'cos I think photobucket is a bit temperamental, but just wanted to give this a go.)

I am so lucky!




I have bee totally spoilt by my lovely secret summer santa, who just happened to be Helen. As it happens Helen has been reading my blog for a while, so she knows I love jaffa cakes!!! The toher items are Hipknits Silk (oooh it's so lovely I keep touching it!) and Lornas Shepherd sock yarn - so more scrummy socks for me! The pre-carded alpaca fibre will become something quite soon I think, I need to test my natural dyes on some fleece I have, which will never be carded into anything as I'm fed up with it - but will do nicely for a dye test-run! But as soon as the weather breaks just a little then I will be spinning that, it feels soft like a cloud!

The stuff has finally arrived for my spoilee, not sure if they're going to like it, but here's hoping!!

Right, the home-made bread is just about to "ping" and tell me it's ready, and OH is on his way, so it must be time for lunch!!!!
