All Things Green

I was camping with my sister and our kids in Rothiemurchus this weekend. It was fab, the campsite is set in woodland so we had plenty of privacy and the kids spent their time on their bikes or making 'potions' with pine cones and mud.

My sister and I listened to Clannad and tried to remember as many lines as possible from 'Robin of Sherwood' - one of our favourite programs when we were younger!

Camping is a great way to relax and to take time out to remind ourselves what is important in life - just being happy.

Of course I managed some knitting - my sister has commissioned me to make her a cardigan in lieu of my share of the petrol money for the camping trip - the colour of wool she wants is a shade of green called 'Woodland Haze' - most befitting of our weekend in the forest.

I knitted up a sample for myself last week - its one of those things you make when an idea pops into your head, cross your fingers and hope it turns out OK - it must be for my sis to ask for one.

This weekend is the Wee Green Market in Killearn, Victoria Halls , 10am- 3pm, please come in if you are passing. So its a mad rush tomorrow before I go back to work, to try and get some bunnies finished - only the ears to make!

nice to find your blog...
The campsite sounds lovely, somewhere I've never thought of and it's just down the road from me!
'Robin of Sherwood'....I used to love it too, and that Clannad song!

Not very good at 'blogging' typed a screed last night and lost it so here we go again!

Thought it about time to leave a supportive message for my very clever sis. She has been working very hard over the last year and just keeps on getting better and better (yes I have got one of her bags and a necklace to match!). I have been helping her out at a few craft fairs. I'm the chief coffee and cake getter (there is always good selection of home baking at these fairs!)oh and I tie on labels too! Anyway wont go on but just wanted to say a BIG good luck with your new venture. Love you lots! Jx

Nothings forgotten!

p.s. is my cardigan ready yet?!
