Knit Club Holibobs

I love Knit Club 


With a PASSION! 


Well there's only one thing I love more and that's Knit Club Holiday. Suzie (The Wool Sanctuary) organises it twice a year at Kirstie Allsopps Hand Made Home (book and TVshow).  



Meadowgate is an idyllic get away. It takes my breath away. Actually it takes my words away too for I have come to write this post many times over the past fortnight and I manage to write a load of twonk. This is not helped by the fact that I can't get my photographs to stay in the order I am putting them in. Most frustrating.



One day I'll return to Meadowgate and I will sleep in this sweet twin room. 

So I will write whatever comes into my head and I will leave the pics to sit as they please. Why stress? I'm getting my knickers in a twist about plenty of other things in real life without getting silly over a blog post.

This was a moment of pure perfection


Don't ask!












My mum came too and she made this little bear called Wilf

My mum had a birthday when we were there

On the way home we stopped at Donna Flower's home. She laid on an amazing afternoon tea for us. Such a lovely, lovely lady. I bought a heap of fabric and have spent the past year (Yes these pics are from February 2013) overdrawn as a result. I am rubbish with money.

Right, no more typing. I'm hitting publish. I need to go and write comments on blogs.....

ps. What is going on with blogger? My pics are not this poor quality on my computer but they are awful in this post and dreadful when I make the photo's extra large. It's this sort of pain in the butt thing that puts me off posting these days.

  1. Well I love your post but I also feel your pain. My pictures have a mind of their own these days and it's not a mind set I like. So glad you shared so many fun things x x oh and P.flipping S blogger keeps chucking me out too.

  3. I did a double take when I saw this post! I thought you had given up on the blogging front....so, lovely to see this. Knit club looks great. I'm still pants at knitting.....utterly pants. It's slow going and it annoys me, but it's annoying me more that I just am not taking to it like I want to. Oh well. Maybe one day.

    Hope you are well. I have a half written letter. The kitchen chaos put paid to it being finished. Soon though, if the Bears give me 5 minutes peace this Easter hols.

    Take care my friend xxxxx

    P.S it might help if you change your browser to do a post. It happened to me for a while too but I changed my browser and it was fine in another. Also, blogger changed to auto correct your pics when you upload making them not look like you want them too. I had to change to google plus to be able to stop it being done automatically when you upload. Not sure if it can be done without changing to google plus. Might be worth a looksie. x

  5. Ignore what V said, your problem with Blogger is nothing technical, it's simply dust and cobwebs moy luvver.

    Mwahahahaha!

  8. I just went through the same problem with my new blogspot blog, and this is what I learned. Blogger, in it's bid to force more people to sign up for Google Plus, and thus be able to track all of our information and sell it, are creating these problems for which the only solution can be found via Google Plus' settings. Google Plus has an Auto Enhance feature which automatically edits your uploaded pictures, it doesn't improve them, it adds a grey tone, making them darker. To disable this feature you must sign up for Google Plus. Click on Home > Settings. Scroll to the "Auto Enhance" section. Uncheck "Automatically enhance new photos".

  15. Hello Cuckoo
    I've popped in several times before and so was v happy to see a new post today. Rather bizarrely I landed back here today through Pinterest and a GORGEOUS picture of a very scrummy green bobbly ruffley blanket that someone had made from a pattern on your blog. Couldn't find the pattern but did find new post - yay !
    Knitting Club holiday sounds totes amazing......
    Have a lovely day

  18. Hey Cuckoo, long time since I visited but so lovely to read about your little crafty get away.
    What a wonderful place and to have someone else do the cooking etc. while you create is most certainly bliss. What a clever mum you have too, no doubt your inherited her creative genes.

    You always make me smile whether you're having trouble finding the right words or not....Holibobs and twonk, my new words for the week.....love it.......

  20. Olá amiga, passando para lhe deixar um carinho, e já estou te seguindo,beijokas

    Amigo é coisa para se guardar Debaixo de sete chaves
    Dentro do coração
    Assim falava a canção que na América ouvi
    Mas quem cantava chorou Ao ver o seu amigo partir
    Mas quem ficou, no pensamento voou
    Com seu canto que o outro lembrou
    E quem voou, no pensamento ficou Com a lembrança que o outro cantou
    Amigo é coisa para se guardar No lado esquerdo do peito
    Mesmo que o tempo e a distância digam "não"
    Mesmo esquecendo a canção
    O que importa é ouvir
    A voz que vem do coração
    Pois seja o que vier,
    venha o que vier Qualquer dia,
    amigo, eu volto
    A te encontrar
    Qualquer dia, amigo, a gente vai se encontrar.
