Seriously, I blinked and missed 'em! ;)
My beautiful cousin was here for a couple of days - all the way up from Devon so she could visit the Chelsea Flower show. She stayed here two nights, coming up after work one day, going to Chelsea the next, and then driving home the third day. It was wonderful to spend a little time in the evenings chatting whilst sitting on my deck under my beautiful fairy lights. Listening to the hens clucking themselves to sleep. I feel very lucky that I come from such an awesome family. We don't get to see each other all that often as we are spread far and wide, but it never affects our relationships, we are as close now as we were when we were children. It's interesting to see those personality traits that obviously come from genetics rather than background!! (misplaced your keys lately anyone?!) Anyway, it was an honour to be able to help her meet her Chelsea dream, I hope we get to do it again one year.
In other news........ I've been knitting, and working hard on the Crafters' Barn (the new site, so I won't link) It's coming along swimmingly and I've got someone in to do the T&C's now as well, so I'm beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel. It feels it's been a long time coming, but it's been such a dream of mine to offer this website to all small business crafters out there. Won't be long folks!
I have loads of knitting to do too. Laika is finished and it's beautiful, but it needs buttons so I'm not showing it until it's done (despite the fact that it's been worn several times already) I'm now knitting some men's socks for a client, just plain vanilla type gardening socks. Nice summer knitting really, quite mindless and not lots of heavy yarn sitting in your lap!
So a photoless post, that's not good is it??????
She's always happy to oblige ;)
