The Wiltshire Guild has a New Home

Today was an important day at the Guild. We had an important discussion this morning regarding the future of our Guild and it has been decided we will move into new permanent premises in Steeple Ashton. This new venture will mean a lot of work but is hugely exciting as we will be able to have looms and offer workshops in a variety of fibre crafts and all forms of weaving. The Guild will also be able to grow their own dyer's garden in secure grounds so they won't be damaged.

Some members would have preferred the status quo which is to be expected as everyone has slightly different requirements and/or expectations.

I think it is very exciting.

I'm A Winner ... Again!

Oh, my. I could say I never win anything but it appears that would be a lie.

Recently I won this lovely glove pattern from Jackie of JL Yarnworks.

And on Thursday, I won a prize in the daily raffle run by Lush on Twitter.

My prize arrived very quickly in its cute box

and it included the following loveliness:

A small size of SnowShowers the new limited edition shower jelly, a small Dream Cream which is a totally gorgeous moisturiser and a honeycomb of Honey I washed the Kids soap.


Thank you Lush.

A Right Pudding!

Every year we buy a Christmas decoration for the house. Not for us the sophistication of colour co-ordinated decoration. We prefer the riot of colour and the memories of past holidays as each item is pulled out of the box for another year.

I still have my dad's first Christmas decoration, the glass silver glitter has tarnished to a dirty green and the white glass has faded to a mottled cream but I love it. I look at it every year and it makes me smile.

With all that has been going on, I was going to suggest to my husband that we forgo this ritual for 2009 when he presented me with the cutest Christmas pudding.
