We had a lovely time in Jersey visiting our daughter Victoria and were pleased to see she is settling in to her life on the Island with Ben.
I think she had very high heals on in this picture.
I am not going to moan about the cancelled ferry home, the foul weather, or anything else - I'm going to concentrate on the positives!
We stayed at the lovely Five Roads Farm, in Millais Cottage
and on the second to last day the sun shone and I got to swim in the sea which was wonderful
The only (sort of ) problem was that whilst I was on Jersey I should have been here to, firstly, man a stand at the East Garston Art and Craft weekend, and secondly, be here to host Coastal Colours who were showing their wares at our workshop. Of course, as is the way here, friends and neighbours rallied round. Sally, Dawn and Jackie looked after the Lorne Hill Farm workshops stand
Apparently it was a lot of fun and lots of people came.
Coastal Colours were a huge success at our Pitch and Stitch on Tuesday. They spin and dye their own wool and Sandra said they were a lovely couple. Sandra said at one point she asked if anything could be done with the bags of alpaca wool we have:
Apparently Graham pulled out a wodge (obviously not the technical term) and 10 minutes later produced this
We are really looking forward to them holding a two day spinning and dying workshop here next September - and both Sandra and I keep thinking about whether to visit e bay and look up spinning wheels........
