Sunday Bazaar

I just love going to the bazaars here, they are the nearest thing to Charity shops. It’s more like a jumble sale really. I purchased these three books. The knitting one has some lovely patterns. I  sure will be knitting some of them. I also like doing Sudoku too, got to keep the green matter exercised, hasn’t one. Not a single puzzle had been done. I also enjoy looking at butterflies, there has got to be some inspiration inside this little book. All these for 1.50 euro.
The find of the day was a brand new pair of Doc Martins, very flash don’t you think. They are just my size and cost only 3euro.
As you can see I have started sewing my squares together, they are looking quite good don’t you think. I have only sewn two big blocks together and I am pleased with the results so far. So my needles are still clicking away merrily.
I am looking forward to next Sunday too, as there is another bazaar. Wonder what I will find this time!!!

Wedding and Birthday

I know it’s a while since I went to England for my nieces wedding and my sisters birthday, but I thought I might share these pic’s with you.

The Wedding


My sister with her son and daughter-in-law.


The happy couple. Louise and Stephen.




I know it was September 26th but it was a beautiful day and no coat was needed.

Now the Birthday


This is a family group of my mothers side of the family. 


The one in the middle is my Aunty Sylvia, she is the only one left out of 5 sisters.




And did we all have a good time?


On both days everyone had a great time. Well you do when you have all your family and friends around you don’t you.

This is what I have been doing lately.


Making squares for an afghan.

I found this pattern on Ravelery. It is called Psychedelic Squares Afghan. Up to now I have made 20 squares using up my odd ball stash of DK.

So when I’m sat watching telly, I’m knitting away too. I don’t know how big I am going to make it. Let’s see how far I get with the wool I already have.


Maybe I should block these ones so I don’t get overwhelmed by them all when I come to sew them together.

That makes sense knit a few block a few

It takes 4 squares to make a complete big square, so I may sew a few squares together also.

Ok, got to dash I have some wool waiting for me.

This is January!!!!!!


I stopped to take a photo of this bush today. We have had such lovely weather these last few weeks. The temperature was over 26 degrees the other day. I think this bush is a bit confused, sure it thinks it is spring.
