Knit and Natter Friday

We visited a wonderful museum yesterday. It deserves a post of its own, which I will do this weekend, when my  thoughts are in line. It is the Bradford Industrial Museum, I thought you might like a taster.

Housed in an old mill , called Moorside Mill, an old Spinning Mill.

Lots of machinery to see.  This one is for twisting the yarn onto the cheeses, I think they are called. So much to see, I took over 45 photos  for me to think about. Thought I would share one more today. This is a splendid bedspread in a reconstructed mill workers cottage from the 1890s.

Isn’t that fabulous?

Meantime there has been a little knitting on the gloves, for ME.

Bit plain? Next time I show them they won’t be.

The Repair cafe, just in case you missed the post , was good. We had £36 donated for the repairs and £26 for the teas and coffees.

I did a bit of crochet while I was there and a little bit more afterwards.

All from left over yarn . I plan to make a blanket for a raffle prize for the Repair Cafe.

I don’t seem to have done much crafting this week,  still rather tired after the weekend .  I also felt a bit sorry for myself as I needed an emergency dental appointment for a wobbly crown. All is well though.

Hope everyone out there is well, and if not try to just take it a day at a time, and do look after yourselves. Find some “me time”  and make something nice. Over to you all now for some wonderful nattering. Have you been somewhere interesting or made something fabulous? Do tell please.

Love you all,

Cathy
