Knitting in Henley On Thames 2

Mel has been spoiling me buying me all my favourite treats and taking me to some lovely shops and thrift stores.

Leiny's pre Christmas gift is almost finished. It is made with Japanese Noro wool and is one of the Noro patterns also.

It was late night shopping in Henley last night and I was so happy to see this Morris Minor Traveller (like my own one) parked up outside the Bell bookshop all dressed up for the festive season.

I had lots of inspiration for my own Christmas gifts and crafts. Morris will also feature this year.


I received a Kreativ Blogger award from Beachy(I really appreciate it, thank you for thinking of me) at The Whispering Poppies and it made me so happy, I was really touched by the lovely things she posted about me. Please visit her blog and if you are inclined participate in the Holiday fun on December 12th. I know I am looking forward to it, what a truly inspired idea.

I checked out some of my favourite blogs and saw that two people had been working very hard at Fairs, so I passed on the award to Michele at Cowboys and Custard who is so creative I am always inspired by her work and a little in awe of her energy. Her cards, pocket mirrors and skill at photographing all her wares are amazing and well worth a visit.

Stephanie at My Calico Heart has been working very hard also for a Fair, I hope it is a total success. I used to do the Fairs a few years ago and know the effort and energy that goes into preparing, finishing, packing, unpacking,then meeting all the buyers, other sellers and then packing and much work. Well done.

Hi Margie, love the photos from our great week. What a pity it is nearly over but there will be plenty more visits to come between now and the wedding! You will have to post more pictures from Ireland so I can see them :o) Love Mel

I just wanted to say how happy and pleased I was to hear that you wanted to give me an award, thank you, thank you, thank you :) This means so much to me and just the boost I need coming up to my Carft Fair.
I'm glad you had a great time it looks like you had lots of fun. The funny thing is my Dad has a white Morris Minor which he has restored, I look at it longingly but she's his baby and he wont part with her.

Margie.. you are so kind.
If only you could see me today.. I have no creative energy at all.. all spent! I will be back to the drawing board soon though..
Thank you for my awards... I have been terribly forgetful and have a belated award to put on my blog..

I love Henley.. I lived there is the late 70's it was such a fun place to live. My eldest brother lives there now and we went to visit him in the summer.. a real trip down memory lane for me.
Love and best ..
Michele xx

Good morning Margie! Thank you for your nice comment on my blog! What a wonderful car! I've never seen it in looks very "British" from my point of view!
