A change is as good as a rest as they say, so here we are for a Saturday natter. The Repair cafe was well attended last week. We couldn’t help but I dropped off the crochet blanket for the raffle. Fifteen people brought along repairs and 19 things were fixed and saved from landfill. Hurrah.
The raffle was drawn on Sunday and the blanket was delivered to the winner. I was emailed this news.
“We’ve just delivered it and she was completely over the moon. I haven’t seen that much pleasure on anyone’s face for a long time. When we left she gave us a bag of Rington’s Butter Toffees to give to you as a thank-you! I will hang on to them until we next meet.”
Now isn’t that just nice and all from leftover yarn.
Don’t appear to have a picture minus ends, but there were no ends, hang on a mo

Crafting is hereditary, well we knew that. Little Miss F won a first prize for her Easter craft at school.

And crafting is catching. Thrilled to hear after several crafty type gifts to Ms G from me , she is taking dress making classes.
As for me, a bit of crochet, and a bit of knitting,
The back of the cardigan for Miss F, it seems enormous to me but then she is growing up.
My son and family arrived yesterday . We have some nice outings lined up, if only it stops raining. Not to fret, Little Miss F arrived with a knitting project for me, more on that next week.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter.
