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 cake  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

  • Passionflower. One of the joys of our holiday this year was stumbling across the unexpected. We walked past a garden fence covered in these flowers & their ripening fruit. In my schoolgirl French I asked the elderly gentleman if I could take a photo, in better English than my French he invited us in to admire his plot. You can read more about him on the blog, where I've also been writing about how having too much can be a good thing - even if you're a minimalist!

Finally got a photo of me wearing my new sweatshirt, bought from @mirandagorebrowne I ♥♥♥ it so much. The fabric is soft, it fits really well and now washed 3 times it still looks like new! Go buy one before they sell out (also available: "nice buns" & "jammy dodger")

#beautyintheordinary #simplethings #simpleliving #slowliving #colourinspiration #wildflowers #keepthewildinyou Finding beauty in the ordinary. This is the doorstop that held open the shutters at our holiday home, the rose had the most amazing scent. Over the next few days I'm going to share more pics of the hidden spaces and small corners of this beautiful house. This was a slow holiday in the best possible way. We did plenty, but at our own pace. We strolled down cobbled streets, we explored tiny village markets and ate delicious locally grown veg, farmhouse cheese and charcuterie that would give the health and safety police nightmares!!! In other news, new book is going well but as I can't really share progress crochet pics might be sparse for a while.
