Hope you have a lovely weekend Vanessa with plenty of sunshine. I always pack my knitting and books first and far too many clothes. I loved yesterdays scarf, one of the nicest I have ever seen and what a lovely spot to knit. Karenx

Hope you had a good weekend. Maybe when you have caught up with everything I would appreciate your opinion on the flowers I am embroidering this week.

Hello

I'm so happy, happy, happy.
