Do you remember me falling in love with the scarf Anne wore on the British sewing bee?
Well via a look at the Simply Crochet magazine site to see if they have a preview of issue 6 up which is released later this week I found they had a link to the site below: IT'S A KIT!
Sorry the photos won't cut and paste so you'll need the link to see what I mean. I'll have to start saving up!
Very pricey in a way but oh so beautiful! I've been having some ''issues'' this week and with my poor dear car in the car hospital I'm hoping she'll be back soon to carry me about in the South East.
I have finished the sleeves on the red angora tonight but no photos yet so that will come soon.
It's half term and end of May, very nearly June but the incessant rain and the grey dark days and the cold mean we have the heating on AND I could happily wear this angora extra warm cardigan TODAY!
I have worn 3 coats in the last 3 days and all 3 are soaked through as I walked to/from town while my car is being repaired. Here are some views and flowers from our garden taken in sunnier days before 9th May.

This is a post about eating and losing weight and trying to stay healthy as a busy working mum who is in her 4th or 5th decade..... give or take a few years...
I am still with WW and lost 2.5 lbs last week how BRILLIANT is that? So here is how: I just LOVE these JW salads! I only like 3 of them though and there's 5 days in the working week 4 me.
This one has lots of tomato sauce, green olives chopped into fine slices and some red pepper and onions.
Hey here's the ingredients to read for yourself...
We do love them and they are great to eat when hungry and they are satisfying and NIL propoints.
So that was just over 4 each a day then? I do tend to average at least 2 in an 8 hour work day and then maybe one in the evening and one in the car?
Chicken, steamed broccoli, buckwheat,carrot sticks and a dash of cheese and onion dip.
There's a lot of the buckwheat as JJ likes his carbs and is a bloke after all, mine was less than half that!
And here is salad # 3: Tuna again and I must say it's clever of JW as I don't really even like Tuna!
The analyst had to weigh it all so:
Green beans: 13 g
Pasta shells: 49 g
Sweet corn: 57 g
Potato cubes: 31g
Then I would add the following : a £1 bag of green beans - 250g and steam them with a teaspoon of WW margarine and some salt. Apologies for the condition of these they are past their sell by date but it was to hand easily, about to be eaten anyway.
