The weather has not been brilliant for June, but we managed a few outings in the dry and a few afternoons in the garden, the rest of the time was spent concentrating on projects.
We seem to have achieved masses in a week, shopping in St Jean d'Angely and Saintes, Cognac tasting and an outing to the knitting and stitching show in Niort, not quite Ally Pally but worth the drive.
Everyone came along with a variety of projects. Sue was working on a lovely rib sweater from one of the Pompom magazines which should have been in brioche stitch, but we all came to the conclusion that Fisherman's rib would be far easier, she also managed to produce a bunny from one of the wonderful Little cotton rabbits patterns
and a bit of crochet
Mary was working on two amazing shawls
Pat knitted the tiniest cardigan for one of triplets due in August
plus a few small accessories to sell on her craft stall
Diane and Heather were both knitting the same shawl pattern in sparkly and sequinned yarns
and Heather very nearly finished a fab knitted basket in chunky wool mixed with a cotton lurex blend.
In between all the knitting, crochet and gossip we have managed to eat vast amounts, drink a few glasses of wine and celebrate BeBop's 13th birthday,
