    Hi Cathy,

    I’m not sure if my previous comments, on your bit about Thornton Dale Blacksmiths, reached you. As I read I thought she is talking about my family. My (our?) 4X Great Grandfather was, according to the 1841 Census in Maltongate living with his wife and his Grandson (my 2Xgg/f) – his dauighter and her husband were in Great Barugh where they nran their own Blacksmith shop. Your direct ancestor, I think, my great, great…….Uncle, who wnet from smith to horse doctor to Vet. His son actually attend vet college. Other of my kin through the daughter lived in Maltongate and Cross Street. Whilst, I have been to Thornton Dale I’m not really familiar with it, but I seem to think that their Forge is what is now the Chocolate shop.

    I would be interested to hear from you. My sister is going to Pickering for a week or so at the end of the month, so if there are any points on interest that I can send her with her camera would be appreciated.

    Mike

  10. Hi Mike,

    Yes it’s the same family- I think we corresponded before through Genes Reunited! Our subscription lapsed so I can’t be contacted that way. Do you have an email? I must have missed your comment before- sorry!

  11. Oh, I didn’t know you were a Yorkshire lass! Did you know I did the Oxfam Trailtrekker hike in May of this year (not sure that I blogged about it, pretty sure I didn’t). It was amazing, and I was just blown away by the beauty of the North Yorkshire National Park! Stunning. Lovelier even than lovely green Devon.

    • Oh but Devon is lovely too and much warmer. I have happy memories of a childhood holiday in Devon . Love the country lanes too. So glad you enjoyed your time in Yorkshire. I am a little biased!

  12. Thanks for popping into my blog today and a warm welcome – so lovely to have you as my 61st follower!!! xxx

  13. Hello, and thanks for visiting Chiconia. Yorkshire’s one of my favourite places in England, I’ve spent many happy days in Hebden Bridge. North Queensland’s very different, so I hope you find something to enjoy in my part of the world! Kate

    I was interested to read your blog, because I believe my great, great grandfather was a blacksmith in Thornton Le Dale in the mid 19th century. He was called Thomas Burnett.

    • Hi, I think the two families are connected. I am away from home this week and will have a look at the connection on my return and send you an email. My 3x great aunt married into the Burnett family, but I will explain more in the email. Thanks so much for reading and contacting me.

  16. Hi. Thank you so much for dropping by and following my blog. I will be popping by again soon to see what you are up to and learn more about your Sunday Sevens. You have me intrigued. ☺

  17. Hi Cathy
    Lots to read here but not sure where to reply.
    Loved this re naff coat hangers! made me smile.
    ” I have no less than three magazine articles dating back to the 1970s on how to do it. And a couple more recent ones. Last well maybe a few more years ago I bought some plain wooden coat hangers and found some suitable fabric to use and put it all in a bag and did precisely nothing with it.

    Also seven Sunday’s, although not worked out the ” seven” bit yet!

    My sister Pip came over from New Zealand last year and we took my 95 year old mum with my other sister Kath on a memory holiday visiting the Rosedale chimney, Hutton le Hole, Whitby, Staithes and the moorland.

    I will be back, Roz

    • I know all those places very well indeed. Sunday sevens, are seven photos taken during the week, which say something about that week but don’t warrant a post of their own!

  18. Another Yorkshire blogger! I’ve tried to work out which bit you’re from … but I’ve failed.

  19. Wrap up warm then, it’s cold and wet here today!

  20. Hi Cathy, I have been off the blogging radar most of the summer, but it’s now 6 o’clock and I am crocheting by the log fire. It’s Autumn.
    Do you do Facebook? I have started a group called Easy Platform Crochet for beginners.
    I am mad enough to think I can take on the world, teaching crochet! Haha! Anyway if you are interested check us out ok.
    Roz ❤️💜💚💛💛

  21. Hi Cathy,
    Just wanted to say how much I appreciate your comments on my blog. There are times when I feel I am putting my posts out into a void, and it makes SUCH a difference to know that they are read and appreciated. If there is some award I can nominate you for as best blog comment maker, then please let me know!

    Thanks for following Cathy. Looks interesting here and I have followed back. Ros xx

  23. Hi Cathy
    I am worried that you have resolved not to buy any yarn in 2017. Is this a good idea? Is it even possible? Please tell me that you will still be knitting and crocheting!

    • The idea for 2017 is to knit every bit of yarn I already own. I tend to buy for specific projects, so I have bags of yarn and patterns in the wings. Time to knit/crochet it all

  24. Hi Cathy, and thanks for the follow! So pleased to meet you. Will browse🌺
