Jane's Jottings

Issue 101 on its way today

Hi Everyone,

I think I am back to work with more than one brain cell working – I have certainly been under the weather and not allowed to work as much as I like.I have been in to hospital and well cared for and think that I have actually turned a corner today. Much better. Last week Bill and I had a day out together and we shared driving over 500 miles in the day.! We actually did our week’s shop on the way back from Bradford in Tesco at midnight…… but then we able to sleep in the following morning.

Shopping fr silk


Can you imagine – it was like being in Aladdin’s cave

Whilst in Bradford, I bought 204 metres of the most gorgeous silk fabrics so that I can uses them in future kits.  This is a picture of one of the warehouses – about a tenth of what there was to see. I think Bill was relieved to get out with so little.

Today we are packing your magazine which will be in the post tonight so all of you should have it by the weekend. If yours does not arrive, please drop me an email so I can investigate. The next issue will be in September and be your bumper issue with some festive stitching added to get you in the mood for Christmas!

Designed for us by Member, Sally Leonard this is a really unusual blackwork pattern and is included in this current magazine. She is so clever with her monochrome designs. The charts for all three designs are included. in your magazine. Not yet a Member – Go to Join Us so that you do not miss anything!

In this issue, we have a design from by Emma Pavier of Ann’s  Orchard called Clementine the Hen – I met Emma at the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia and fell in love with her charming beaded projects.
