Knitted Book Cover

Hello Friends

I wrote this yesterday  and pressed save as I was having trouble uploading a photo, I think it was because H was downloading a couple of films. When I came back to it it wasn't there so I've had to start all over again.

So here we are. Welcome to Froogs my first follow (congratulation on your blog award) and the two lovely comments from Jane and Ilona. I have to say that this is all very new to me but I will get my fingers and head around it all eventually.

Last year my daughter started high school and had to take in a reading book every day so that when they'd finished their class work and were waiting for others to finish they got out their books. Consequently there was no disruption in class and the childs reading improved. L's book got quite tatty, so during the summer holidays I Knitted a book cover for this school year. This week one of L's friend noticed and asked if I would make her one the same so thats what I've been doing.
I'm still having trouble uploading the picture I want to show you. I suppose it's because H is still downloading a film.  will have another go go tomorrow when he's back at work.

Yesterday I was tidying out my chest freezer looking at what was in there and just generally tidying it because our local supermarket is closing for one day on Monday for refurbishment so we are hoping to get plenty of bargins today in the fresh produce line. I will have to let you know how  get on. Whilst  was in the freezer I found lots of little bags of rhubarb so this week I'm hoping to have a go at making some rhubarb and ginger jam. I've not made this before but a friend has and it was delicious. I will also let you know how that turns out and maybe some pictures too.

Well that's it for today. Thank you for dropping by and have a nice Sunday dispite the weather.



  1. My Dad used to cover all of our schoolbooks with wallpaper...they took such a bashing...but your own books in the classroom? How times have changed!

    1. We used to cover our work books with old wallpaper, they're not allowed now for some reason. L could get a book out of the school library but prefers to take her own


Busy May

The weather has been glourious this month, almost wall to wall sunshine. Some say it will last all summer. We'll have to wait and see. ...
