Send an ark or a lifeboat!!!

Well, here in the North West of England, it has not stopped raining since Wednesday night! It has been our turn for floods although in our little spot we have escaped. Just 6 miles down the road they have had houses with rivers running through. It is dry this morning for a few hours before the rain and storms return.........at least my craft room is upstairs lol.




Today I am showing you the first little vest and hat which I knitted over the Jubilee week-end. This is for the fish and chip babies in Africa, which I am sure you have, by now, heard about, I have another one half made. As you know, they have to be made in darker colours than we use for babies, as they never get washed.

I hope you have a lovely weekend, I also hope you keep dry and warm........ yes, it's still chilly for mid June. I am going to watch the last day at Ascot after I get Mum up. I love watching the fashions. How lovely was it yesterday for the Queen to have a winner in her Jubliee year! Also to recieve the trophy from Prince Phillip!

Happy crafting, thanks for your visit

Hugs Tilly x

Hi Tilly,

Well I am glad you are in the dry even though it's wet outside, today we have had a few spots and black clouds with splashes of sunshine, with strong winds.
It's our turn for the storms tomorrow and high winds.

I have not heard of the fish and chip babies in Africa, but I am sure they will love your vest and hat.

Hope you have a good weekend and the rain stops

Had to laugh at Sue's comment..lol..what she on her..lol...

I think this is so adorable Tilly, clever thing, why are they never washed anyway, not heard that one before, are you sure someone isn't just pulling your chain about that......love it anyway and your a good soul to make them for the poor little loves......I don't knit so can't help...

The rain is doing my nut in...oh will it never stop, I know we are luckier than some, but it's just not on is it...where's summer...lol...xxxxxxxx
