Happy New Year to all you lovely people
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year, we were very quiet, but very enjoyable with all the festive food and drink, today though were having curry instead of the usual roast a bit of a change for all of us, but all thought we needed to get out of a rut with the usual food, so were going for it.
Last Wednesday saw a trip to Weymouth and Portland, really to Weymouth to look for my Great Grandad x4 gravestone, which we found in Melcombe Regis Cemetery, still standing proud after all these years, he died in 1879 at the ripe old age of 78 not bad for those days I suppose, but my Great Grandma x4 lived to the age of 90 and is buried with him, he originally live in Bridport but moved to Weymouth for work in 1860, all the words on the stone still visable, so felt glad that we had been and he'd been found.
So that led to a rather moody grey and blustery walk round Portland Bill, you could hardly stand up, the sea was swaying with the swell, lots of white horses and foam, the mad mad dog hated it, so much he wouldnt even have his piccy taken! he'd already got wet in the cemetery earlier, so wasn't in the best of moods (he hates the wind and rain).

standing proud lighthouse
All the moody greys and whites inspired me to start yet another crochet blanket, with grey and white and grey sparkle, which dosn't really show up on the photo
So this one will be called Portland Bill, might put a mad flash of colour near the end
three blankets on the go, I love the start of a crochet blanket, when you can go whizzing round and round, then gets slower and slower.
This one inspired by the garden in the late summer
the green edged one is finished and sits proudly on daughters bed!
No more ramblings for now or else the samosas won't be made to go with the curry!
