Harvest Home...

Finally! - The last load was brought in at about 5.30 this afternoon - just as George and the East Garston Tower were ringing out for the Queen!  Now to get on with the ploughing, cultivating and drilling for next year!

We had had a really enjoyable day making Japanese patches in the workshop - the first class of our Autumn term -  so everyone was happy!

So, we are off to Jersey this weekend which is wonderful but I have slipped up fairly spectacularly. 

First of all, on Saturday (2.00pm to 6.00pm) and Sunday (1.00 to 4.00pm) East Garston is holding an Arts and Crafts weekend at the Friends Meeting House.  I have a table - but won't be there!  Luckily for me some of our regulars have offered to stand in so if you are around do pop in and have a look.  There are a lot of crafty people in East Garston so it should be fun.

Then, on Tuesday morning,  Coastal Colours will be having a stand at our Pitch and Stitch session.

I am so sorry to be missing this.  Graham and Lindsey are down from Lancashire for the Bristol Wool Show, and will be staying on our CL on their way home.  They are knitters, spinners and hand dyers, specialising in dying luxury 4ply and lace weight knitting yarns.

Graham has sent me some pictures:


Don't the colours look beautiful!  I am so sorry to be missing them but the good news is that they will be coming back next year to do a two day spinning and dying workshop which will be brilliant.
So, I reckon East Garston is the place to be this weekend and on Tuesday!
Oh, and by the way, regarding the Christmas wreaths we didn't have pictures of for the schedule - we now have them.  The wreath can be made in felt or fabric, and looks like this:

  1. The wool looks wonderful. I will definitely start knitting again once we have moved and I get my knitting needles out of storage.
    Enjoy Jersey - Wish we were there!
