>I’ve had an ambition to go to an agricultural show for years and this year is the first time I’ve made it to one. Despite weather which ranged from heavy showers to to hot sun to gusty wind, we had a lovely time, seeing animals great…
and small… (we think there should be a new class for showing ‘Simultaneous Buggy and Dog Handling’)
Some lovely quilts- the circles one is my favourite and already has me thinking about a ‘big girl’s bed’ quilt for M (yes, she’s only four weeks old, but it might take me a while!).
Beeswax and honeycombs- have to show this to my sister, who has been taken on as an apprentice beekeeper at the media company she works at (it’s in London, they have a hive on the roof! And no, beekeeper is not her actual job)
And finally…my Fairisle pullover! All those months of fiddly colourwork, anguished frogging after I misread the pattern, re-knitting and then not being able to wear it because of the baby bump and finally it ends up winning first prize in ‘Garment Knitted in a Fashion Yarn’!
