The niece of fellow blogger Barb from Bejeweled Quilts by Barb has opened a new, on-line store. Click the picture to follow the link to the goodies. Barb is also giving a Giveaway, and what a Giveaway, to celebrate the new store opening! Go here.
Best of luck (but I want them!).

The firemen had difficulty lighting the front of the fire, (they are more more used to putting them out!), so the back of the bonfire was blazing away merrily, as you can see in this picture.
There was free soup and sandwiches for everyone, and more than £400 of fireworks, which, for a small community, was a lot. They were really pretty, but difficult to photograph! It was not too cold and everybody enjoyed themselves thoroughly! Thanks for all the hard work that went into organising this.

On the way home from Penicuik, my husband made a one hundred and twenty five mile diverion in horrendous weather to take me to my favourite craft shop. Letham Crafts in Angus. The rain was torrential. It was so bad, the water was flowing off the fields, like streams, across the road. We kept on being diverted onto other roads, so it took us a long time, and, when we got there, I only had an hour before the shop closed. Letham Crafts is an Aladdin's cave for craftworkers. It is amazing! Years ago, when I started teaching hand patchwork in Angus, I asked the owner to get in some patchwork material. It was a long way to go, but I knew I would be able to get co-ordinatng materials, and that I would be able to SEE them. I like buying things off the Net, but I was really disappointed with the jelly rolls, so I wanted material I could see and touch this time. I was not disappointed. But what am I going to make with them? Any suggestions?
