  6. I say, what posh chocolate! I was watching last night too, along with millions of others - Downtonians? :o) Love your autumn crochet Kate and the blanket - now the evenings are a bit chilly a big blanket WIP is just the job to keep the feet and legs warm. Have a great week.

  12. Ooh Kate I love your new autumn garland. I wouldn't have the patience to do something so intricate that's if I could even make something so intricate. And is that a new blanket I can see on the go. Ooh and yes Downton is back yeah. I that sad I sat and watched the last two episodes of series four so that I was all ready come nine o'clock and yes I did have a nice bar of chocolate and a glass of vino to go with.
