10 days to go....

Look at these cute chicks for putting Creme eggs into. I am struggling to produce one each for my children while Maxine has made 14! I am incredulously amazed, impressed and jealous but also grateful as she has given me the 2 on the right of the picture to boost my pitiful numbers.

I have been busy though, trying to line some baskets which we want to put balls of wool into.

These baskets have given me hours of headaches and I am not very satisfied with the results, I'd rather be knitting.....

or perhaps crocheting, I have been desperate to use these new hooks, only one more basket to line and I will be free.
Rowan have kindly sent us some garments for display which are beautifully knitted, especially this kidsilk haze cardi, the colours are amazing and it is so soft, we love kidsilk haze!

I am off home to Falkirk and to meet my beautiful new neice Lola Jane, who will be 4 weeks old when I see her, thus leaving Maxine to tie up all the loose ends and continue her frenzied knitting.
So I leave you with a jar:

Next time we will be proud owners of a massive stash...I mean shop.


  1. good luck with the new shop - a friend of mine lives close to Frome I will have to tell her about it :-)

  2. good luck - looking forward to seeing more! t.x(there's only one place I ever put a creme egg - and it doesn't involve giving it to anyone else! HA!)

  3. Good Luck Maxine...I'll look forward to visiting your new shop soon!

  4. Also Maxine, I just wanted to add...I've been trying to answer the email that you sent to me this morning, but they keep bouncing back, saying unknown recipient - sorry.

  5. Hi Maxine - Niki sent me the link to your blog. I'll definitely come and see you next time I come to Frome - which will more than likely be with Niki anyway!!

    Good luck to you both.


  6. Hello Maxine - I've just tried sending my email again via different addresses and with a read receipt, but still they bounce back. Here's what I was trying to send:
    Hi Maxine,
    Thank you for your email. I was really interested to hear about your 'soon to be' shop in Frome! I’ll try to come in next time I’m over there…St Catherine’s Hill is my favourite part, of course. So many individual and unique shops, that all deserve to do really well.
    I noticed a poster for an artisan market once a month on the hill…do you know anything about it? Do the shops open at the same time?
    I am often at Standerwick on a Sunday, for the car boot sale, so could always go to the market/shops after that…

    Good luck with your blog and your new and exciting venture!
