It has been........Far too long!

Viewpoint at the back of Largs.
We have had some great weather!

Time is in short supply these days and
blogging is practically non existant.
So I think from now on it may be more and more infrequent.

However thought I'd share a few pics 
from things that have been happening......

Met up with Daisy and John at Wool on the wall.

My niece Martha had her 2nd birthday(well one of) party at ours.

Fun helping friends in Lochwinnoch 
clear their bracken jungle.

Another great day!

Out for brekkie.....such fun!

and lots of work.....
Slowly moving my shop to Etsy so lots of new
things to dye and packs to make with the help
of Vicky and Rita.

Woolfest 2014.....what fun!

Another brilliant show in Cockermouth,
the organizers work so hard to create really a
fabulous wooly experience.

We were even busier than last year, and thrilled that
so many of last years customers and our online
customers popped by to say hello.

It was also great to meet many new creative people.

Sadly we were so busy I never managed a pic with
 Rita, Vicky and myself on the stand.

Now to the unpacking........

New Additions to family...Dotty and Dora

Meet Dotty and Dora!

Hope was desperate for rabbits for her birthday
(she is 7 on Wednesday.....eeeek)
and she wanted to adopt from the SSPCA.

Dotty and Dora have settled
in really well, we couldn't have wished for 
a better natured pair.

As you can see Hope is really enjoying their company,
she just climbs in the run with them!
