Hope the move went OK?? No my son didn't get into uni all the places were cut dew to goverent funding so he has gone back to college for another year.
I am great we have just come back from a week in Potugal and it was great, it was 35 degrees and when we got back to London it felt quite cold. How long has you grand children lived in Germany, and do you go and visit them? Have a good time on the IOW.
I haven't heared from you for a while have you had a good summer on the bungalow, you must be getting on well with it now? My son has just gone to Reading music festival today and the weather is terrible, are you having this terrible wet weather as well? It has blowen a lot of apples of the trees, I have apples crumbles coming out of my ears. Hope you are well?
I have been on a mission knitting squares the last few week. How it the painting coming along? This s a good time to get in the garden with the great weather that we have been having. What are you making at the moment. They are all talking about wool from poundstretcher have you seen it? I might have to take a look at that.
I was helping my mum sort out her wardrobe and found a carrier bag full of aran wool. Some if it was half knitted unstead if picking it a thought that I would have ago at felting. so I boil wash the sleeves back and front and it all came out matted together, when I cut it up I got 16 squares out of it. I made 3 more squares out of the remaining wool and sewn them all up this is such a quick blanket to make. First time I have done felting will do it again if I can find a pure wool jumper, will have to look in the charity shops.
Hope you are well and not to snow under with decorating.
Glade the garden is nearly finish you could do with a long rest after you have finished everything. Put your feet up and go in hoilday. They are asking for more squares but I have got lots of odd bits of wool that needs using up so I will be making more hats and teddies until all odd and end are used. Hope you and the dogs are keeping will. I think it is going to be a nice day today will try and do my hanging baskets I got the plants at the weekend.
At the moment I have just finished 4 football teddies and 4 brown teddies will post pic soon.

Have you sent you last parcel to Africa yet? I took a parcel in Tuesday and the woman behind the counter laugh when I sent it was going to South Africa and said "if it gets there". Do you think there is a problem with a parcel getting there? I am going to look thought the forum to see if there are problems. Yes I did enjoy reading Sandy new wish list I have just sent some ponchos and in the 99p store there are flip flop will get some of them for next time.

Dawn keep your chin up with the bungalow.
The Leeds trip was great we went down a coal mine and went to the royal armoury. The shopping in Leeds is good there are designed shops for the people with money (not me) and then we found the flea market (thats more me) I found wool stalls but did refrain myself from buying any.
I have never seen anyone post scarfs but they can sew them together if they wont to. Sound like the decorating is going on to long.
Should be quite good reading the Ezine this month.
FINISHED!!!!! "The cardigan"
going to Leeds tomorrow so I can take it with me. How is your friends cardigan going? Did you have a good Easter? I spent most of my time looking after my mum. I expect you had a lots of time to do some painting. The weather has been lovely manager to get into the garden and do a bit of digging, and planting some seeds which are a bit late going in.
