I made one for my Burgundy Brolly

Unfortunately I can't leave it on my umbrella, as the furry children can't leave them alone.

Finished two of these Flutterby lace edgings, washing the pillowcases before application.

Harley is my electric Geobike, first time out every season is a nail biter for me, till I get used to him again. We made it all the way to knitting nite at the LYS on Wednesday night. We both arrived safe and sound. DS came and picked him up so I wouldn't have to drive home in the dark, with headlights ;0)

Harley and I are finally on the road again. 1st time out each season is always a nail-biter till I get used to him again. We made it all the way to Knitting Nite at the LYS on Wednesday night. About a 20 minute trip. We both arrived safe and sound. DS came and picked him up so I wouldn’t have to drive home in the dark, with headlights. I should add the sun had not set…lol  ;0)

    I loved the Sister Fidelma mysteries. It has been a long time, probably when it first came out, since I have read this one. Peter Tremayne is a historian by training and his books’ historical details are accurate. I think I start re-reading the series.
