The Shawl is Finished and on The Stretcher!

I am happy to tell you I have FINALLY finished knitting the shaded shawl in the natural colours of Shetland fleece and last night me and hubby put it on the stretcher. (We ALMOST fell out at one point, but managed to stay friends!!) I just have one scarf to finish now for the local show at the beginning of August. The other two scarves are done. One is already washed and 'dressed', (I'll post a photo of that as well.) The other just needs that final treatment.
I've got one of 3 jars of different types of chutney made, my strawberry jam which I hope will do well again this year after taking the best in show trophy a couple of years ago. My rhubarb jam is also made, which now just leaves 7 jams and preserves to make.
I am submitting 12 photographs which have been ordered and should arrive soon.
Phew!! I'm exhausted just writing about it!!! lol
So I maybe won't get another post on here til after the show, which is the first Saturday in August. I'm hoping to have something to report back about by then!
In the meantime, thanks for stopping by, please comment or say you've been and where you came from. I love visiting other peoples' blogs too.

And this is the photo I'm submitting in the 'digitally enhanced photo' section of the show........

Stay cool and creative folks!


  1. Your shawl is absolutely beautiful! oh my!

  2. Suzie, thank you so much! I've just started another one which is white in the centre and will have shades of grey and some black and white in the bordering. The above shawl will be for sale after the show if it doesn't sell on the show day. I am so tempted to keep it as I'm not very good at parting with things I've made, but I've decided to sell. I'm hoping it might get a little rosette at the show. That would be great. But if not, I still like the shawl.
    Thank you so much for dropping by and for your very kind comment! Come by again soon!
