We have had the most wonderful few days with Amber and Bob and the only downside was that it all went by far too quickly .We all got on so famously and didn't stop talking or laughing , the only time we stopped was when we ate !!. The weather was amazing if a little too hot,so at least they were able to see some of our surrounding countryside .
Amber and I did some dyeing which was such fun as we both love colours and got so excited oohing and aahing and Amber had specific colours in mind for socks for Bob, which we were able to get.I didn't take any photos but if you go to Amber'sblog then you will see what was produced. Wye Sue kindly sent us some Leicester Longwool fleece to dye up and they turned out beautiful so I am looking forward to playing some more with them. Thanks again Sue, you are so kind and I have never used this fleece before so it was great to see what it was like .
We all know how generous Amber is and they came bearing gifts and what gifts , I was totally overwhelmed and don't know which to start with.
Bob made this lovely Dream catcher for the van
and Amber made the snugly blankie for the van also. How did she know I needed one ? This will be perfect and now they will be with us in spirit when we are doing our travels.
Again I have been meaning to make a cosy shawl for myself. Well I have made a few but they tend to walk out of the door but not this one ,this one is special and so so cosy and mine, all mine; can you tell I love it ? . We went out in the garden last night watching the stars as it was a clear night and it came in mighty handy to snuggle into and a fitting colour too, midnight blue :)
As if all that was not enough look at this
another stunning elemental doll made by Amber but this one is a zodiac Libran one and see she has a spindle in her hand ; doesn't she look at home amongst the spinning wheels ? Again she is so very precious to me and I just adore everything about her; Amber has me well sussed ;-)
Oh and last but not least , if you follow Ambers blog you may have seen her range of individual dyed underwear and yes I too now have a pair;) I think its a fun idea instead of boring white ones and one which I am going to try out .
I have just this minute remembered that there were also a pair of dyed socks for Tony that I have forgotten to photo , so many things to remember!!
Thank you so much Amber and Bob for your generosity and especially for your company and we are both looking forward to our next meeting which won't be too far away.
