Today it is my birthday. It is also the day for the April Leap List and, since I’m not able to go out or do anything birthday-ish, what better time than to review the past month! MAKING WIPS Sort out the wedding gift so it’s ready for whenever it’s needed – NO (but I have […]

Wool on Sundays – 123 (A Helping Hand)

Welcome to another Wool on Sundays :) You may remember that before I went wandering about the North West of England with my camera (pictures in my Wandering Camera post) our garden really didn’t look too bad… When we got back, it looked like this :( Now, with Mr RH and I working day and night (well, […]
