"Thanks everyone for your kind comments.  I'm not sure either of us feel particularly amazing; we just do what we can as often as time allows.  What is truly amazing is how much fun we have along the way!"

Hi Elaine! Thank you so much! Oooh you are a master in pattern writing! I am Dutch, when I can read and follow it easily.........and it was so much fun to do! xoxo

Hi Elaine. Lovely to hear from you. We went to live in Tunbridge Wells. I know that it's a lovely town, but it just wasn't Jackfield. I actually tried to run away from home with 2 other girls who had been transplanted like myself. I left with a suitcase containing.....my school uniform, of all things! I didn't get very far as the first girl, that I had to collect on the way, was fast asleep and my efforts to wake her were heard....so I was nabbed and taken home.

I did all my university in Aberystwyth, not too far from my beloved Shropshire.

My great aunt was from Surrey. She lived in Tadworth for a while and then in Epsom.

You're right. Saint Vaury is rural. I live in the heart of the Limousin cattle country about 3 miles from Saint Vaury itself, in a little "lieu-dit" called La Chérade. We've been here for 11 years now and love every minute. The Creuse departement is a big joke in France as everyone imagines that we're all ignorant peasants. This is very far from the truth. The main occupation is agriculture, but these days all the farmers are hooked up to the Net and very modern in their outlook. I'm quite happy that people treat us as a joke. It keeps the undesirables away and property prices low. This means that our young people can still afford to buy a house and stay in the area if they wish. Also, we have a lot of English people who have bought property here.

My daughter lives in the South of France in Port Fréjus.

I vote every week for Knit for Life association, and I sincerely hope that you will win soon.

Hi Elaine. I am pleased to have you as a friend. I lived in Shropshire as a child and loved it. I was heartbroken when we moved to Kent, although that's a really nice place too. However I missed the fredom I had in the small village of Jackfield. All of us children ran wild in the surrounding countryside. Going into Wellington was an experience, and going to Shrewsbury was like going to London or New York...so big! Have you lived there all your life?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Oh, Elaine, thanks for the chuckle ... "it doesn't always rain here"  just makes me laugh.   We watch a lot of English programming on TV here, especially Time Team, and it seems they are always dealing with rain and wind, but there is the occasional episode where they are complaining of the heat and sporting sunburns. 

Yes, there are some changes in the works for us right now, which mostly bothers me because it takes time away from crochet or knitting squares.   I think I am well and truly addicted to making squares, and when I don't get to do it, I feel nervous and anxious, just like an addict on withdrawal. 

Thanks for your kind words, and your understanding.  Seems to lessen the troubles when someone else has experience and understands what is happening.  Warm hugs.

Hello, Elaine, and thank you so much for your warm welcome to the UK group.   My husband and I are actually Americans who have been in Australia for his job.   Glenelg is a lovely place to be if you can't be in your own home, so we have enjoyed it here.   Changes coming soon, though, so I'm not sure where I will be next year.

I hope you get back to Australia again, and enjoy your time here.  I have never made it to England, I'm afraid, but would surely like to visit there and see the many places we have learned about, both through TV and KAS.

Take care, and keep up the good work.

Thanks for reply Elaine. I have noted your email and tel number in case I need more help. Meanwhile the consensus of opinion seems to be re bagging the squares and sending in 2 parcels. I will have to re-think for the future as it is a lot to fork out every time. However we are at present starting on 'cat blankets' and that will be for a local animal home. I had no idea when we started that the post to S Africa was so much. What sort of things are your group making? I am always open to new ideas although most of the older ladies want to keep it simple like for blankets. One or two could manage a more difficult pattern. I will enquire about the home having a fund.  Thanks Terry
