Insane Sanquhar Gloves

I’d spent a whole day at Ally Pally, enjoyed myself, bought some pretty things but hadn’t seen that one “to die for” project to make my heart race. In fact, I think I’d gone Wool-blind from seeing too much lovely yarn! Then I spotted a Japanese lady sitting at her stall doing the most incredible […]

Eveleen – She’s beautiful!!

****Warning **** ****This post includes a “horror” picture**** 😉 Do you remember Eveleen?
