Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Enjoying the sunshine at Seahouses on the Northumberland coast. We went last Easter and for the first time ever managed the trip to the Farne Islands on a beautiful sunny morning. The dreaded sea fret followed us back and the afternoon on Holy Island was cool and damp. We never made Bamburgh becaus...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Enjoy the trip Sue, I hope the traffic isn't too bad..... We arrived at Coventry before 10.00 am and thus the traffic was very light. We spent the whole day outside. Went for a walk with Eve in the afternoon to Memorial Park and back and the rest of the time we were relaxing in the garden. It was a...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Thank you both. I think they were About 9 cm by 11 if I recall. The edging was a bit fiddly on the two I edged. The walking one was mainly hand sewn, involving a technique called picture quilting. It was 3D with the hills stuffed with wadding from the back. The other two were machine embroidery, don...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Going for our usual 4-5 mile walk this morning, we usually manage 3 miles an hour and like to keep that up. The point of these walks is the cardio as neither of us run or would want to. We do more leisurely walks if we go out for the day and on holiday. This afternoon I have a lesson with Maxine to ...

Heptonstall, a very interesting place. Sylvia Plath is buried there in St Thomas A. Beckett Churchyard, Heptonstall. The old cemetery has a coin clippers grave.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Interesting story Wendy. I recognised the names you mentioned from my walk on Saturday. Maz, I hope you will now improve with a vengeance. When my daughter had the op, the year before me, it was more like yours with the larger incision. Her recovery was slower and she had to wear a corset and sit on...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

That was the same op I had Maz, its wonderful. So glad you are feeling tons better. Life and living can return to normal once more. My incision was much smaller, key hole and luckily for me I had no muscle pain indeed no pain at all. Think of all that sewing, cycling and gardening you can now do

You are right Stanley, when you walk the walls there is an excellent view. Plus the city is well endowed with information boards explaining the various sites, including how the racecourse used to be a large harbour before the river silted up in the 1300 s .I remembered from past visits there that th...

Thanks for the comments about the dress, it was a relatively easy make, 5 pieces and no zips or buttons as it is stretchy knit fabric.

What is Whitaker, Stanley?

A bit of shopping today, and a prescription to fetch. Then I have a dress to make for Erin out of some delightful material. Photo later, it won’t load at the moment
