The company of friends

I had a great day on Saturday. Everything worked out perfectly - the weather was lovely, the food was good and the company was great. We set our tiny hall all a buzz with all the chat.

Cute hall hey? The guests arrived at 12 pm and we partied on until evening. We came home tired but happy. Being able to share with our friends in this way was very special to us. The warmth and good wishes we received from everybody was very heartwarming.

Because I've been so unwell the last week I haven't touched my needles for seven days. Yes, I've been counting. Last night I finally picked them up again and knew that I was back to normal. So poor old Henley has been neglected and I'm still short a sleeve.

The garden remains a feast of colour. Here again a little taste of a glorious rhododendron...

and a divine tulip.

I am happy to hear you are feeling better! I got my hands on the IK winter 2007 after seeing the Henley you were working on. I hope I will be able to come to the next Gisborne meeting, I already started hinting to the hubby!
