FIBRE-EAST 2013.....



As you can see, Josiekitten and I had a great day out at Fibre-East on Sunday, despite a slight detour en-route, as the sat nav didn't pick up a new road or realise there would be a diversion. Since the demise of 'Knit-Nation', there has been nothing else close enough for a day visit. This was the second day of the show, but the stalls were well stocked and, as they were spread through a number of halls, rooms and marquees, nowhere felt too busyAs you can see, Josiekitten and I had a great day out at Fibre-East on Sunday, despite a slight detour en-route, as the sat nav didn't pick up a new road or realise there would be a diversion.

The show caters for knitters as well as spinners, with plenty to buy, try and watch. It's grown each year and looks set to become a regular date in the diary. A great start to the school holidays!

So far, the weather has been glorious and we've made the most of it by getting out and about, without going to far from home.


How lucky we are to live in the centre of a city, yet five minutes from this beautiful and peaceful former quarry. It makes perfect Oscar walking territory. He loves it!



Mr Snoops has been harvesting a bumper crop of veg from the allotment, as you can see from this afternoons pickings.


The beetroot has been cooked, a crumble made and the potatoes, carrots, chard, beans and fresh broccoli heads used for dinner this evening. YUM! I LOVE summer!
