Woolfest Here I Come!

Photo copyright: Woolfest

To say I’m excited about travelling up to Cumbria on Friday for this year’s Woolfest is a bit of an understatement. In between catching up with old friends, meeting some of my favourite designers and dyers, there might just be time to add to my “Yarn Collection” – please don’t call it a stash – makes it sound like something to be hidden away or kept secret! (…ok so there are some balls of wool, a much regretted purchase of eyelash yarn and a few bits and bobs I bought in moments of madness hidden under the bed, but they don’t really count do they?)

I’m really looking forward to finally meeting Jeni at the Fyberspates stand, so I can tell her in person just how wonderful the new Scrumptious Collection book is and saying hello to Kerrie over at Inside Crochet’s stall, I may even take my latest incarnation of the circles scarf to show her.

Then of course there’s the ewe’s milk ice cream which is just sublime.

We’ll be staying with Mr T’s parents at the other end of Cockermouth, so I’m hoping there will be cakeĀ  too and a chance to catch up on family gossip.

If you’re going, look out for me and say hello. I know there are heaps of Fibre + Clay customers going, so do let me know if you’ll be there so we can show off our new purchases.

Finally, a big hurrah to all the members of The Woolclip for organising a fantastic 2 days yet again, I can’t imagine how much work goes into organising Woolfest, but I know how much we all appreciate it and I’m so glad they do it.

    I hope that Woolfest was all that you hoped it would be and more. If you did by chance add to your “Yarn Collection”, bring it along to show us on Friday, I’d love to see. Jackie D

  • Adorable twitchy nose, cute little feet - but don't be fooled - this cheeky fella has eaten every single pea I planted in the greenhouse - no wonder his coat looks so glossy!
#girlgardener #ediblegarden #organicgardener #permaculture #forestgarden #growyourownfood  #slowliving One of the most  precious gifts you'll get in life is a best frend. Flowers from the garden - even in January! Last year I set myself a goal, to have flowers from the garden every week of the year. January it seems is easy - winter flowering clematis and viburnum doing a great job of cheering up the utility room today! Gardens are about feeding the soul, not just food for the table.
#cuttinggarden #flowergarden #permaculture #forestgarden #girlgardener #makingwinter #winterstories Last Saturday morning, Allonby. Wish every weekend could start with a walk on the beach, the winter light is so beautiful! 
Today I shall mostly be blocking crochet swatches, baking bread (my "signature" spelt  sourdough) & trying to book an Easter holiday! Whatever you have planned, be happy my Instagram friends xxx

#girlgardener #growyourownfood  #organicgardener #ediblegarden #permaculture #forestgarden Hellebores, I love their delicate flowers and "barely there" shades of pink and couldn't resist bringing a few into the house today.  I'm slowly dealing with the pile of work on my desk, answering emails and doing one task at a time! 
Living with chronic illness is challenging and frustrating, but  slowing down and make the most of each day is a lesson I needed to learn!
