Latest projects.

 This is my latest shawl.The colours have come out pinkish but actually it is mainly orange,brown and red and very striking.The pattern is Be Simple Variations available free on Ravelry.It is a very easy pattern ,one to do watching TV.

 I have started another blanket.I am doing Attic 24's Hydrangea .I am rather daunted by all that wool!!!
But my latest venture is into weaving.I have bought a 10 " Ashford loom.I have yet to start it.Watch this space.

Other things....We went to see The Thirty Nine Steps at the theatre.It is a spoof on John Buchan's book and was hilarious.It does you good to be in a full theatre and everyone is laughing.What a tonic in these gloomy days.
We also went to see the film The Children Act based on the book by Ian McEwan.Not a bundle of laughs but very thought provoking.At the theatre again this Friday to see Julie from the National Theatre and on Saturday to see Lord of the Flies.

The latest book I am reading is Take Nothing with You.Patrick Gales's latest.

This week so far.

 On Monday we felt like a bit of a walk so went to Errdig NT for a stroll round the gardens.We didn't bother with the house as we have been many times.On the way back we went to visit a village I wanted to see and then got hopelessly lost...
Last night we went to Theatr Clwyd to see Duet for One.It was a two hander.How do they remember all those lines?
Today we have been to Northwich to look after tEmily and Ruby after school and do tea.Lots of news about new classes and teachers.All great.
