Not a good week...

Thinking I had plenty of time to finish the 'you know what' I became ill through the week and ran out of time..doooh!
So Fridays deadline slipped.
Feeling better by this weekend I have just about managed to finish the 'you know what' this morning. Last chapters sent to the lovely Virginia at GMC, with just a small package to go via snail mail this morning.
Fingers crossed only amendments to do after that.......pheeeew! So glad it is all finished.

Been a bit of a nigh mare weekend, lost headings and spacings and unsaved work, but all over now so crossing everything and hoping it arrives safe and sound and no serious problems occur.


First for this week I want to recommend a couple of yarns
I've been a big lover of JAMES C BRETT yarns for a long time but this is the first time I have used
COTTON-ON 50% Cotton 50% acrylic
Not a bad selection of colours, so soft, doesn't split when you hook it and a real pleasure to work with.

The second yarn is WENDY: PURE100% Bamboo ribbon 
Another soft, easy to use, none splitting yarn that is easy to use and gives a lovely result and an eco-fibre too

Both well worth buying.

James is back from a week with his friend and his family in Barcelona and Llafranc. 
Can't wait to catch up and see his photos and get a hug too.

Hoping to get back to blogging normal again this week 
so catch you all later
Hugs to all x
