Making & Remembering Thursday

Good evening

Wow what a day - gale force winds and torrential rain. The boys were very glad that MrVV works from home today as it saved them from getting soaked on the way to school & back.  My bicycle stayed in the garage - certainly wouldn't have been safe to ride it today. The road into town was apparently littered with branches and wheelie bins!!

Definitely the sort of day to stay indoors and keep warm by crafting - mainly finishing off lots of WIPs - some of which I want to take with me on Saturday!!


This Angel is off to be part of a Festival of Angels in a local church - hopefully she'll come back and grace my tree when it is over.

I've completed another of the knitted toys my Grandma asked me to finish.

One raggy doll for the sale at the weekend (left) and a raggy witch for a friend.

Lastly for today, I shall leave you with one of my favourite pictures from the last 12 months - perfect for Armistice Day;

Lovely lovely things! My daughter would love a dolly, she has lots but treasures them all. Where are you selling on Saturday? The poppies are lovely. I am at my most hormonal at the moment and have found Armistice Day very sad. My Daughter started me off by crying at the idea of her brother and father having to join up were we living then. Every poem and story since has had me in floods. I wonder who will sell the poppies when all the older guys pass on?
