Look, look, this is how long it has been since I wrote on here. Wenda has had a baby! This is baby Gwenda. She is so cute but stupid! I am so sorry that I have neglected my blog. I use that bloomin Instagram all the time on my iPhone, it is so much easier than posting on here.
I have had another birthday, I know it is getting to be a yearly occurrence. Oh dear! That seems to be the limit of my humour at the moment. I am now 41, it sounds better than 40. I feel the same but can't run as fast as I used to. I've never run properly, but if I need to, the chances are I would be outrun caught or overtaken.
The Wool Sanctguary Knit Club has been to Meadowgate again. Yes, Meadowgate 3 happened at the end of November and I have booked Meadowgate 4 for the beginning of February 2013. We just love the place so much. We went to Cowslip for Sunday lunch and to do a workshop on the Tuesday to make the Christmas trees in the picture above.
I bought some materials whilst I was there to do some hand quilting. Not sure what it is going to be, and I know it doesn't make sense. I was in a strange place on the last night at Meadowgate when I wrote 'jelly'.
I had the master bedroom again. The house is so beautiful, and warm, due to the underfloor heating. It is only a matter of time before I move the Wool Sanctuary into it and stay there forever. I wish. Actually, I don't wish, as I am expanding my business and my lovely home has more wool than ever. I have expanded from just the lounge onto the landing and am waiting for units so I can expand further into the bedrooms. I have never been happier.
I have started to put my yarn back on my website for sale. It is going to take some time but I will do it one range at a time. Tonight it has been the turn of Rowan Pure Wool DK. There are 27 gorgeous colours. I have tried to present them in a way that shows them off to their best and makes them hard to resist. I want them all to go to good homes where they will be cherished as they are here. The numbers on the balls are the shade number, I thought it was nicer to see them like that than in al ist or a boring square picture of a part of the ball.
They look like snooker balls, aren't they gorgeous? I feel so inspired just looking at them. I have just ordered in the WHOLE range of Drift, I love it. The book is called Winter Drift and the yarn is G- or- geous!!! That will live on my new shelves that will be in one of the bedrooms. I am going to make it so that when the knitters come to knit club they can either sit in the lounge, the kitchen or the bedroom, where it is a bit calmer, useful for if knitters have a headache or want to concentrate. They can even have a sleep on the bed if they like. I want the knitting experience at The Wool Sanctuary to be the best ever.
