An Eclectic Mixture!

It's a glorious morning here in our corner of North Yorkshire.

Spotted this small flock of sheep on my early morning 'Daisy' walk.
This weekend Pateley Bridge, hosted a 1940's event.
It was amazing all the visitors and there were hundreds, got into
the spirit of things and dressed for the occasion.

 The shops were issued sandbags and their windows taped.

Our gallery was no exception.

Great fun was had by all!
On a personal note, I  finished the little hat for my 

It's very cute,..... can't wait to see what it looks like on.
Also found this little raincoat, to add to the parcel.

Before I go, I must share with you my find of the week.
An old sewing box was by the bin outside the Charity shop.
On enquiring I was told that I could have it, as it was too scratched
to sell. When I got home and opened it ......

this is what I found! An absolute cornucopia.
The cottons alone, were exquisite. 
I'm still investigating all the bits an pieces.
Obviously some old lady's treasured possession.
I am glad it didn't go out with the rubbish.
Have a great week everyone!

My Week in Pictures!

Thought I'd try something different in this post.
Mostly photos, with very little text.

Weeping Buddlea looking magnificent in the garden.

Newly emerged butterfly, snapped on a walk with Daisy.

Finished the Fingerless Mittens.

Made this Dorset Button Brooch

On Saturday I sold one of Justin's paintings.

Yesterday, on one of my days off, 
I .....

purchased a pattern to knit my granddaughter this hat.

Hasn't she grown!

Today the wool arrived. Excellent service from
'Love Knitting' I only ordered it yesterday and
 being a first order with them,
 I got a 10% discount and  free delvery.
Very impressed!

This morning, I upcycled a velour scarf,
which I purchased in the Charity Shop, last week.
I embellished it with colourful silk fibres.
Very pleased with the result.
When I look back I seem to have had a very busy time.
Enjoy your week everyone!
