On the road again.

I'm on the road again.

This time with Mr T and heading back down to Eldest daughter in Exeter for half term.
So of course work basket has to come too.

Travelling is a great  for a bit of hooking with some spare wool.
Can you tell what it is yet?

Then we stopped in Cleveden in Somerset for afternoon tea.
This is the place that has the pier that is in " Never let me go"

Don't they look great. I didn't have one though.

 The "Spinning weal" had caught my eye first.

Lots of woollyness

Then up the stairs to be confronted by fabric heaven

I didn't know which way to look first.

Mr T wants me to take up weaving as he fancies one of these.

I couldn't come away empty handed could I, especially as these were reduced.

We then took this good advice.

Great cafe with quite a bit of Cath about.

I love this bunting.

 And by the time we got to Exeter I had finished my ear warmers which I might need over the next few days.

sorry about the picture--- I blame Mr T as he took it.

If I come across anything down here I think you should know about I'll let you know.



  1. Oh, it looks like you've had a marvellous time, that shop looks wonderful, your very restrained!

  2. OMG!!! What a fabulous day out - you lucky girl!

  3. Wow! How did you get out of that craft shop alive??!!Sounds like you`re going to have a lovely weekend. I love your headband - I made a similar one for my niece but my Mother threw it into a hot wash (Rowan Plaid with merino and alpaca!) and the rest is history!

  4. Hi Gill!
    What a wonderful day you had, I liked when you said you didn't know where to look first! Isn't that the truth! I often feel that way when I find myself in a shop surrounded by so many lovelies! Which has been rare lately as we're getting ready for this house moving. Hoo, can't wait for it to be over! Thank you for sticking with me and wishing me well on our move!
    Have a wonderful day, my friend!

  5. Enjoy your break, look forward to hearing about it!
