I have recieved two lovely awards from Moogsmum - Lesley

Thank you Lesley you are a "One In a Million Friend" and I would like to give the award to you and to the following lovely bloggy friends Kaz, Julie, Leigh, Lucy, Kerry, Gina and Laura Thank you ladies for your very special friendships.
The Cool Cat award I would like to give to every one who has left me comments before and to anyone who would like to leave a comment for the first time. You are all Cool Cats.

Leigh also gave me an award, I would like to give this to every one who is on my side bar

WIPs - I have now finished bunny and I am just finishing the sheep for my friend so I should be able to post pictures shortly.

Tomorrow some of us are meeting up at the Country Living Spring Fair at the Business Centre, Islington, London. I love railway journeys as they always remind me of the poem by Robert Louis Stevenson - From a Railway Carriage, which we had to learn at school.
From a Railway Carriage
Faster than fairies, faster than witches,
Bridges and houses, hedges and ditches;
And charging along like troops in a battle,
All through the meadows, the horses and cattle:
All of the sights of the hill and the plain
Fly as thick as driving rain;
And ever again, in the wink of an eye,
Painted stations whistle by.

Here is a child who clambers and scrambles,
All by himself and gathering brambles;
Here is a tramp who stands and gazes;
And there is the green for stringing the daisies!
Here is a cart run away on the road
Lumping along with man and load;
And here is a mill and there is a river:
Each a glimpse and gone for ever!
