Just to continue a little bit from my previous blog about collecting postcards or deltiology – a hard word to remember.
I have seen photographs but no postcards of the big wheel which was used in the West of Ireland. I’ll be on the look-out for that postcard (if it exists) to add to my collection.
is nearly finished. I also have a good start on Hodge Podge 6. I have separated out the weaving yarn that had found a temporary home in my knitting stash – usually because it was a colour I liked. And I have set up a separate stash for sock knitting. All in the interest of re-organizing, and a very satisfying exercise it has proved to be.
And as to reading – a rediscovered treasure from the 1970’s. One Woman’s Arctic by Sheila Burnford. A fascinating account of 2 summers spent in the far far North, very near the North Pole. One Woman’s Arctic by Sheila Burnford.
