The Production Line Has Ended!

 And Eight Reading Cushions have been delivered to Save the Children for the Woodstock shop

 A toys and a book will be tucked into the pockets for some quiet snuggle time
 Yesterday I had a mammoth cut back on lots of perennials in the garden and uncovered a gang of these revolting creatures.
they were HUGE!!!
 As you can imagine - they are now no longer there - UGH!!!

 Saturday saw another family gathering for BIL's and Niece's Birthday celebrations so baking was done in the morning

Favorite Chocolate recipe - before the Ganache was added
 and a Magic Custard cake
  and I have been relaxing in the evening with my Hill Top Shawl.  I was ready to bind off, but had quite a bit of yarn left,  so have added an extra lace repeat,  and am weighing the ball after every two rows so that I have enough left for the Picot edge.  I'm loving this yarn and the pattern is a happy easy knit

and I may have cast on another pattern - just to see if this yarn would work - and may have got a bit carried away!
