Cottage on the Hill


Guess where I went today; yup to Kerry's at Cottage on the Hill. with my five children. The two older children were busy telling Kerry and Judy about their own sewing adventures. Then they played with lego, drew/coloured in at the table and had a run outside. All in all pretty good behaviour for a two visit.

I had a wonderful time browsing about looking at fabrics and quilts. It's great to see so many hanging and sitting around to look at. I bought a few bits and pieces to finish things off and to help (basting pins). pictured below - with many thanks to Kerry for telling me how to move my pictures about! - is a kit to make 'Sweet Janice' in flannels. mmmm nothing better than to snuggle with a flannel quilt in the cooler weather.

Of course after seeing sooo many bloggers taking their picture with Kerry I had to get one taken too. My first appearance in blog land. and naturally my hair needed brushing - it is always messy not matter what I do with it

then we went to the Woolen Mill in Nundle to get some more 'yukky wool' for my mum. *grin* She was trying to describe the colour to me last night on the phone and the word yucky kept entering e conversation. It's not really yukky, if I got the right wool that is, like a mid tan type colour???? She is a croqueter and does a brilliant job too.

I bought some sock wool and needles, the pattern was free.

The children picked a ball of wool each, not sure what they will do with it yet. They also really wanted the knitting book and I thought it might provide good incentive to keep at learning to knit. One ball of wool for each child; can you guess which ball belongs to the 17month old????

Oh Hello Bec, Nice to see you. Now I can put a face to the lovely emails. You are a very game lady taking your 5 little ones to Kerry's. It is a nice area for them to play. Love the flannels. Will be keeping my eye out for your project. Glad you got a photo with Kerry, messy hair and all.
Hugs Fiona xx
