Red, White and Blue


Hi blogging buddies!
Woopee, the engineer has been and the fridge is fixed so by tomorrow, when it's back up to temperature, I'll be able to stock up.  I really couldn't be bothered having to shop every day but I know lots of people do and in my childhood, everybody had to!  

My news from yesterday ... a new tea shop has opened up not too far from where I live and they are opening a craft centre for classes and I've been asked to take a card class.  There's going to be quilting, jewellery, knitting and other hand craft classes during the week and crafty children's parties at the weekend. Sounds so exciting and I wish them all the best.

While the engineer was working away in the kitchen I was upstairs doing another lot of ironing and then had a play in the craftroom.  It's certainly a day for it as his blowing a hoolie and hissing rain ... and that's putting it politely!

My granddaughter is coming for tea so I'm off to make mince and tatties.  The school she goes to is just down the road so it's fine and handy and I'll take her home in the evening.

Before I go, I thought you might like to see the size of the knitting pins I used to knit the bag - it's like knitting with tree trunks!



Enjoy the rest of your day.
Hugs

PS - sorry about the distorted card photo, I'm going to have to sack the camera "girl"!!!
