A lovely surprise through the post this morning when a parcel arrived from Fiona (Marmalade Rose on my side bar). I have long admired her workmanship - she is so accurate and neat with her sewing. When I opened the parcel it was a lovely peg bag with a hanger so that it can hang on the washing line (yes, we still peg our washing out on the line up here in the Dales).
I have attached a photograph to this post so that everyone can admire it. What I like about Fi's work is that she chooses colours which enhance one another, her sewing is absolutely accurate and she has such lovely ideas. So thank you so much Fiona - it is much appreciated.
I had another surprise earlier in the week when a card I entered into John's (Going Gently) village show won second prize. Two nice surprises in one week - lovely.
Tomorrow is the annual Wensleydale Show in the fields at the top of our lane. All the marquees are up and cattle are beginning to arrive. Produce etc. will arrive early in the morning and the farmer and I will be going, regardless of the weather. The forecast is for torrential rain for part of the day, which may well turn the show field into a quagmire. But we Dales folk are not put off by such things, so there will be a report tomorrow evening on my blog.
Before we go to the Wensleydale Show the farmer has to go to the West Witton village show where he judges the hay, fruit and vegetable classes every year - so it will be quite a busy day for him.
Reports tomorrow, providing I have an internet connection- I found it hard to get one today - so fingers crossed.
