Stocks and Socks
Ulla sent me some wonderful “:Lempi” wool which was a dream to knit with for my birthday. It is made from Finnish sheep and dyed by the Flying Mitten shop. It is available online here.
Daughter wants a seaside themed room here now she is back from uni.
The rear and border fabric was bought in Beaumaris on Angelsea last Summer. Perfect!
It was only after I took the photographs that I realised that I hadn’t put the railings on the lighthouse cushions.
They came off the cushions quickly and the railings are now safely in place.
The rest of the Elderflower Champagne about to be bottled.
Hesketh Park’s rose garden.
Just imagine the scented warm air.
There are some real beauties.
Standard roses along side floribundas.
Standard rose grafted onto a long stem.
The colours were like stained glass in the sun.
A rose talcum powder scent.
Restored Victorian fountain at the head of the lake.
But the sunshine hasn’t lasted all week.
Bickerstaffe Stone Stocks probably dating from before 1750 as that was when a repair needed to be made.
The wood is new but the stones are the original and in roughly the same position.
Near the Stanley Gate pub which is at a road junction.
Rather a handy place for everyone coming and going to Ormskirk Market.
As this is a veg growing area, I wonder how many people kept some of their over-ripe produce to throw at the petty criminals.
Hmmm would this public naming and shaming work today?
Simone gave me some Debbie Munn fabrics so I made a light coloured dog bed with a pillow case style backing,
which was garden and kitchen themed,
and a dark coloured dog bed both for Freshfields Rescue open day which was yesterday.
Thank you Simone on behalf of the animals.
I also finished a pair of red slouch socks ready for Autumn to wear with leggings.
Another pair of socks is still on the needles. Hopefully I can share next time.
