She's such a show off!






...that Lady Eleanor I mean....

See those bits? That is all I had left from 10 skeins of Noro Transitions. I bought it for half price so she was a bargain. I love her...she has had a bath in some gorgeously moisturising Eucalan
and has been blowing in the summer breeze to get so soft and fluffy. Even her reverse side is interesting....

I am looking forward to wrapping myself in her beauty and smelling the summer warmth on her. I had to make the fringe a bit shorter because I was running out rapidly, in fact, I was one fringe short and so I stood up and looked around me and found a strand under my bum!

Anyway, I am ill, got a gland the size of a hard boiled egg in my neck. I knew I was getting ill on Saturday at the jewellery workshop, which was brilliant by the way. My throat is so sore, I ache and ache and ache...been taking anti biotics since Monday morning but still feel so poorly. Barry says I will feel better tomorrow but he's not a real doctor.

Loads more to show you but let's just enjoy that actress Eleanor for a while.....I'm off for a snooze now x

My Ali is being a bit chatty lately...check her out here xx

She is definitely a beauty!!

She is very beautiful. I hope you feel better soon. Swollen glands are quite sore arent they. I had one earlier in the summer this year. Remember to gargle salty water and drink honey and lemon with hot water. It should help.

Awesome! Just the prettiest shawl I have seen in quite awhile.

I hope by now you are felling much better. Thankyou for visiting my blog. I was interested to know where you had lived in Hampshire. We are in Lee-on-Solent but my daughter lives in Southampton, near to Shirley.

Oops, here I completely missed out on your blog posts. I kept going to your website that is under construction...obviously I am clued out with those profile pages. BTW, love your progress on the website. Love the noro shawl. I just purchased the Noro cashmere blend and am debating as to what to do with it. Happy problem to have!

Marianne said...

OK...so I AM a copycat! I'm making me one of these for my move to Chicago in the fall! I can almost smell it. Beautiful!
