Brandywine & Amy Butler

A couple more photos of my Brandywine Shawl which is now with it's new owner, who was thrilled for the pressie.

I just had my cousin and his partner here for a few days - and a few more days due to the Icelandic volcano. It was great to have Kalle and Sara here and after getting them on the Euro Star, they should now be on a train towards Hamburg and then hopefully back in Sweden soon. Anyway, visits always gives me a very loved visit to one of the many musicals in the west end. This time it was 'We Will Rock You' - and it was FAB. On my way to the theatre, I accidently slipped in to Liberty and got out with a little treat... Rowan by Amy Butler!

As often inspired by PetraO, I'm hoping this will be a beautiful poncho.

Bargain from a charity-shop in Helsingborg - a skein winder for £1!!! Yeah!

Brandywine Shawl

LinkI am so enjoying the Easter holiday. It has been very busy since Christmas with work and course work and I'm so thrilled that my first ever essay passed. Not the best marks in the world, but considering I thought I would fail - I'm more than happy. Anthroposophy is not very easy for me to grasp.

Anyway, having had some time off, I've managed to finally finish something - a Brandywine Shawl. It was meant to be a Easter present for my colleague, but I hope it will be ok with a 'Great to be back at work" pressie instead.

I've also been busy with more practical course work - which is so much easier than all reading and essay writing....

These dolls will be starring in my puppet show - Pelle's new suit by Elsa Beskow, and the scissor-cases, pin-cushion etc will also be assessed, when finished...
