Sorry to be behind, I have been busy catching up with the washing that John brought back from Ireland. At last the rain has stopped and the sun is shining.
I received correct answers for the word search from Jacki, Joan, Luzia, Susan B, Kessa, Donna, Theresa and Kessa. Special praise to Luzia for managing to find them in what ( to her ) is a foreign language. The next puzzle is a cryptogram:
OIXW SYM BYXT SYM WEOO OIXWWML OTXTUV SJMD
Answer to email@example.com by Wednesday midnight please.
No deliveries yet today but I think Indigo and Studio 27 should come. I am also waiting for a delivery from Jamieson.
I found some copies of the Rowan Kidsilk Aura collection that I did not know I had and so I have put them in my shop. I had forgotten how nice the designs are!
Rowan Studio #27 and Kim Hargreave’s Indigo will be with me very soon. I hear tell they are now in Germany and so just have to ship to the UK.
Kessa is the winner of the Bouquet contest – you can see the results by clicking
I will start a new contest tomorrow.
We went to the airport at 5.45 am this morning and I drove home via the scenic route. But it was not trouble free!! It was raining off and on and I put the windscreen wipers on as I was going along. Suddenly I found that the car would not accelerate! Then I noticed a message on the dashboard “Cruise Control set at 32 mph”. When I had put the wipers on, I must have touched the cruise control lever! I had no idea how to make it go out of cruise control and so I pulled into a gateway. I decided that if I turned the engine right off and then re-started it, maybe the cruise control would go away. It did! I have bought the manual indoors and I am going to read about cruise control tonight!
I arrived home and took Slip out. It was very wet and so I put my Wellington boots and over trousers on and we set off round the rape field. Oh no! Both of my Wellingtons were leaking – really leaking – my feet were making squishing noises. I shall have to buy a new pair tomorrow.
We have had so much rain here! I bought my new wellington boots and now have dry feet but that is about all. Walking Slip is no fun – she gets soaked and then shakes and soaks me.
John just telephoned and he has caught an 8 lb salmon and so is pleased. It is very windy where he is and he said that fishing was hard work.
Now, the new contest – a word search! But first, I have just realised that I did not publish the post with the last winner in – please see April 24th post! Sorry, I had saved it in draft mode and forgot to publish!
There are 9 words related to knitting in the square below – they could be knitting terms, or types of knitting – there are no designers or yarn company names. That is all the help I am giving – no list of words for you to find. Words can be read in any direction
