St George's Day Celebrations and Blanket Progress


It was very busy in our town of Tamworth last weekend.  There were St George celebrations in our Castle Grounds which really drew in the crowds as you can see.

They were re-enacting knights jousting which was great fun to watch.

Over the last few years these celebrations have developed from a group of stalls and activities relating to the times of knights and dragons to the big event it was last weekend.  We were very lucky with the weather and managed to avoid the rain.

I have been continuing my current blanket and have been working on the next round of Granny Squares.  I opted for a Puffy Flower square from my favourite crochet book "100 Bright & Colourful Granny Squares".  I have made these in two colours to add to the Ferris Wheels in the centre.

Next step is to get these sewn on to the centre squares.  I will post a picture when I am done.

Bye for  now
