It's a beautiful day here in the Dales today. The sun is shining and the sky is blue, although it is still very cold. We're going out to our first car boot sale of the year this afternoon. Might have to wear my wellies as it's taking place in the middle of a field in West Witton near Leyburn. Yes it's very civilised here in the Dales, an afternoon boot sale, none of this getting up at the crack of dawn for us!
Wonderful Man and I have been out and about a lot this week, almost every day. We've managed trips to Darlington, Settle, Kendal and Skipton.
I had a lovely morning on Thursday, the high light of my week! I met up with Lucy of Attic24 at her Thursday Knit and Knatter session. I had a chatty, hooky, friendly, scrummy couple of hours with people I've never met before, but immediately felt comfortable and at ease with them. It was a bit like being wrapped in a cosy soft granny blanket.
Lucy is just as you would expect from her blog, absolutely lovely, sharing her hooky skills and spreading zingy crochet wooliness all over the table. I'm afraid I was enjoying myself so much that I forgot to take any photos but you can see some pics here on Lucy's blog, including the little crochet house I made her. I must just say thank you for all the lovely comment that were left on Lucy's blog. I was overwhelmed. Thank you. x
The photos above are inside a teeny, tiny wool shop in Kendal. I'm glad I don't have to stock take! Can you imagine! I does look rather fabulous though doesn't it?
Well I've waffled long enough and I'm expecting #1 and #2 any moment wanting bacon sandwiches. I just have time to share my latest charity shop purchase with you, as promised.
It's very heavy.
And very pretty.
I'm not sure if it works yet.
It needs some TLC, but it is rather splendid. Well I think so.
Sneaky dog just can't see what all the fuss is about!
After all, She's black, pretty, heavy and second hand!
