Thanks for all the supportive emails yesterday folks I do appreciate it:) Today the sun is shining and it does help tremendously. We had a leisurely start to the day then went into Lancaster to pick up an old friend who has cvome to stay until Friday. Then when we got home the postman had been bringing treasures for both Mr Mog and I. Mr Mog doesn't often get mail, he says just bills, and his nephew sent him a wee gift from border fine arts today. Her name is bessie, isn't she grand? I think that when they visited they saw all the sheep around and thought they were Mr Mogs:))
Then from Shona
all the goodies you see here:) Including tablet:)) I love tablet Shona thank you. She also sent gorgeous sock yarn but also a finished pair of monkey socks for the hospice, aren't they lovely?
It did my heart good to open the package. I have to make a confession here.As I said most mail is for me especially at the minute with the sock yarn and I started to open Mr Mog's package before realising it said his name not mine. He almost lost the thrill of opening it due to my eagerness(VBG)
The pictures above show a group photo of all this months knitting, not a bad haul is it> Then the second pair of socks for the hospice using Wye Sues yarn
The single sock is for me when it gets finished. Enquiring minds may wonder what the tiny object in the group picture is? A pixie sock I'm experimenting with. The reason will become clear to some of you at some stage:))
Thanks again for the cheering up, I do appreciate it
