I'm still here, knitting ...

I'm still here, just some bad news on the 10th October knocked me for six. My dad has cancer (again) this time its stage 4 and lots of chemo has started, so I went a little quiet to reflect on this and my family and life in general - like you do when you get such bad news. Anyway as my dad wouldn't want me to dwell on bad stuff, he is such a fighter, I am filling my life with colour and knitting (I'm off the crochet briefly, I always find myself knitting at this time of year for gifts and just comfort in front of the TV watching I'm a Celebrity (its now finished :-(

Knitting at this time of year is addictive, isn't it? I've found a new passion, the Trendy Chale, you will see this on Pinterest and regularly on Instagram (as you know I post almost every day now and have over 770 followers, not sure how that happened but it s a comfort to know that people enjoy my work and pictures).

Anyway this is just a brief pop by to say hello and to show you some of my current projects finished and started. I'll get my Blogger mojo back and post more soon. Amanda
