Thanks Valerie for generous offer. My daughter is training hard for the marathon in Paris and I'm already making plans to go to see her. And Saint Tropez next for Jennifer, that is exciting. Love that place. We have friend in Lavandu. And in the summer we go for ice cream to SaintTrop. Fingers crossed for our girls.
I missed her and the marathon this year. We were away, just got back last night. I hope she finished and had a great time in NY . My daughter is in training to run the Paris Marathon in April!! Cheers. DD
Hello Valerie thank you for your email. Yes l live in Telford Shropshire a place called Muxton. I do know Jackfield but not very well. I found the knit a square on the net so thought I would have a go. Got the pattern of the site unfortunately my squares are a fraction bigger than 8x8 must be the way I knit l have done about 10 so far. Do you think they will be acceptable? Thanks Ros
Thank you, yes we haven't been here long only about 2 years we used to live in Stafford! However I think I would much prefer France! Im not sure how to keep up with whether we can send squares or not. I haven't made enough up to send yet can you tell me where I need to go to keep an eye on this?
Will do, Valerie. Our friend Nick Is running and we'll be at the marathon at Second avenue east 96th -97th first , when they enter Manhattan and then later at 90 - 91street on Fifth where the runners enter the park to get to the finish line . I'll be there. on the left side of the street .
I will make a sign for Jennifer.
My friend's wife is French so we always support the Frenchies !!! Best of luck, Jennifer!!
Thank you for your email, Valerie. I live near Bourgueil in Indre et Loire. It is taking me a while to work out how to reply via email but details of your Facebook page in French will be very useful for my friends here. Best wishes, Gillian.
Thanks Valerie for translating the MMs achievement. If you look a bit further in the discussion, you will see that Bev has posted the next one.....Ronda's Birthday celebration.
This is very exciting and we hope we can surprise Ronda with a months rent as her gift. Linda xx
Hi Valerie, I hope you have a wonderful time with your mother-in-law, she sounds an amazing woman. My m-i-l will be 93 in July, she is still quite active but struggles a little with walking since she had a fall a fractured a hip, we visit her every second weekend as she lives about 100 miles from us.
Goodmorning to you too Valerie, thank you so much :) Your suggestion about the cuddle bug square is great. I should not have thought of that! The bug consists of 5 circles only and an adapted circle for the head. Shall I try to write down the pattern? what do you think about that? (My idea was: Anneke when you can crochet a circle you can crochet a cuddle bug). xoxo
Imagine we all should sit together (I would love to) and sit at the table with lots of balls of wool, talk talk talk a lot but also do a lot of crochet or knitting, aren't we multitasking women??? :)))
