A Grand day out

After my near shock at the doctors, we went to Ludlow, a mediaeval town, not far from us.
We went into a lovely tearoom called DEGREYS, where the waitresses wore black uniforms and white aprons. We only had tea and toast but it was served as if it were a banquet. The tea (complete with teastrainer) was in white crockery, the sugar: little cubes with tongs. Even the bill came folded on a saucer.
A real treat I can tell you.

Thanks to you

I think the people on Misi have to be some of the nicest I have "met."
I mentioned the other day about not being able to find a pattern for a crocodile, I got 2 posted to me.

Where can you buy novelty soaps if it's not Christmas? These arrived in today's post.

They are the most beautiful little fruit soaps.
Handcrafted by the very talented Karine from The pinkfairycake
Check out her store at

This is how I intend to use them.

Thought you might like to see the guinea pigs etc.

This is my latest project, I am rather pleased with him. I learnt to knit on dble pointed needles (set of 4 for this).It took me 100's of attempts and lots of curse words but I finally got there.
Now I wondered why I couldn't do it,, it's easy when you know how lol.
Anyway knitting wise it's back to the Sackboys, have 5 of them on the go at minute!
2 more guinea pigs and 2 rats.
Sewing_ a sock monkey, and 3 cushions to complete.

Oh yes and the little matter of MISI Swap to do.
