Hello my friends. Well, what a week it has been. Last Friday Canu (pronounced canny, and means singing) Camilla and I went out along the coast to Abakhan at Mostyn. We took the scenic route as the day was so lovely – in other words, we missed our turning off the A55! We were going to meet up with Angela – crafting with Jack. We had a wonderful time – laughter rang through the tearoom, we sat there for well over two hours getting to know this new WOYWWer. Thanks Angela – we thoroughly enjoyed meeting you.

So then it was time to tackle that box from last week… Ta-da!!!…

And, apart from more crocheting of blanket squares – stash busting – that is the sum total of my crafting activities this week. I’m quite pleased with the box – but it took some fathoming out and doing – very time consuming. Then, I had a phone call from a lady who often knits and sews for Uganda – she brought me lots of jumpers, pencil cases and Bible bags for the children. Huge thanks to her – but no sooner had she gone home, but she was back on the phone to say that another local church had someone who donated knitted blankets to them, could she do anything with them? Could she indeed! Her hubby brought me 7 huge, beautifully knitted blankets. Wow! Folks are just so kind!!

I woke on Saturday morning, got up, and opened the bedroom curtains to this absolutely amazing sight!…

Dashed for the camera! – and within a few minutes I was going from the front of the house to the back to see what was happening…

The first two are the view at the front. This is the view from the back. The sky was coloured by the sunrise right through the whole 360 degrees. Then, as the sun finally came over the horizon…

WOW!!! What a sight.

So, that’s me this week folks – not much to report, really.

I trust this finds you well, and enjoying your crafting. I actually managed to visit everyone last week, and to comment on all but one. I love your work, Kathryn – I just can’t leave a comment… wish I could.

Take care, everyone. God bless.

  4. Wow Margaret, those sunrises are something really special. I bet you thought there was something going on to see the sky so red. You could frame those photos.
    Loving your box – hard work but well worth it.
    Nice to read of your trip out to meet the other WOYWWers – nothing like sharing good times.
    Hugs and Blessings, Neet 10 xx

  5. Wow, that last pic is amazing! Just proves that it;s worth getting up early occasionally (something I’m not very good at doing!). How lovely to meet up with Angela, especially when you get on so well too – do you think she’d be able to come to the Crop next June? The box is really lovely and reminds me of the musical box at the beginning of Camberwick Green (or was it Trumpton?) I loved it when the figure came up out of the middle x

  17. Thank you for your comment. Still in a daze at the moment, waiting on news from coroner. I spoke to my brother on the Thursday, so quite a shock. It was lovely meeting you and Camilla. Your box is very pretty x

  18. Hi Margaret, the trip with friends sounds lovely – when the weather’s good the scenic route’s the best. And how nice to meet up with yet another WOYWWer too. Your sunrise photos are spectacular – though it does, at first glance, look like the town is on fire. Well done to all those industrious ladies – I’m sure their donations will be much appreciated. The little box is delightful too. Hugs, Elizabeth x #21

  19. Oh Margaret I can’t take my eyes off of the sun rising. That is breathtaking. Thank you for sharing because I love looking at sunrises and sunsets and I always run for my camera when I see an extra beautiful one.
    Ok, I am loving those boxes and want to make something like that. Was it a kit or cut file? I love the intricasies but I bet it was a lot of work to assemble. But the result is stunning. Thanks for visiting me. I am running late with my visits. Have a blessed day my friend!
