Yarn Along

Linking up with Ginny for Yarn Along
Blankets for charity!
We had over 80 x 10" squares that the ladies in the knitting group had crocheted.  When my friend Debbie was here a couple of months ago, she took them all home with her and made them up into 3 single bed sized blankets.  Such beautiful colours...and all out of various bits and pieces of leftover yarn!!
Thanks Debbie :))

More jumpers and beanies for Nepal knitted by the dedicated ladies in our knitting group...

Still crocheting around the edge of a single bed blanket for charity...

Finished the red mittens, but they are a bit big for me, so will send them to one of the charities we support.

And on the reading front...

Almost finished re-reading The Clear Light of Day by Penelope Wilcock  and enjoying it again!

And looking forward to starting Leaving Church by Barbara Brown Taylor 
Couldn't resist a little sneak read...I think it's going to be good!!!

Had son Ben and daughter in law Hayley here recently...we had 2 nights in Stanley (love that place!).  Hope to get a post up about it soon.

Finishing up with a quote from Barbara's book....

  1. I hope you enjoy Leaving Church. It is on my to read list. I read her book Learning To Walk In the Dark last year and highly recommend it too.

    1. Hi Juliann!
      Finished The Clear Light of Day this morning, so will be starting Leaving Church tonight.
      Have her An Alter In The World also, which I look forward to reading. xx

  2. The squares into blankets came out so nice.

    1. Hi Michelle!

      Think I might start some more.

      Feel like some 'brightness' in my life :)) xx
