Three Things Thursday: 19 October 2017

My weekly exercise in gratitude – three things that are making me smile – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog [or Twitter account or Facebook page or diary or life in general] with happiness.

First,  a bit of yarn storming. Welsh cob and adjacent bench in Aberaeron. Complete with strategically placed pompoms!

Second, sending a gift (I didn’t have to sit on this one!)

17 RCKs 10

I hope this will make the recipient smile too

Third, cheese… lots of cheese… that we made!

So, that’s what’s making me happy this week. How about you?

  2. What an amazing 3 things – all impressive – but the cheese! Wow! I’m especially impressed with that. When i was 14 and thinking of what career to go into I asked my Dad (a dairy farmer) if I could make cheese from his milk, thinking of becoming a cheese maker – just one more thing that made my parents think me weird! Not such a weird idea now Dad! 😉

  3. That is a lot of cheese, I can see a production line and a new career is in the offing. I love the yarn bombing and I am sure the parcel will be warmly received. I am grateful for new friends and old ones this week , and the fellow who invented selotape. Where would we be without it.

  4. Gosh that’s a lot of cheese! What’s it like?
    Yarn storming is a much better phrase, I never liked yarn ‘bombing’, but I couldn’t think of another way to say it. I shall adopt that if it’s okay 🙂
    This week I’m smiling because I rediscovered how much fun papier mache is, I made a new friend at work, and I found a crochet pattern I really like for little bunny ears

    • We won’t know what the cheese is like for a few months – I will report back!
      I try never to use ‘yarn bombing’, but sadly it does seem to have become the standard phrase. I think ‘yarn storming’ is the term used by Deadly Knitshade and the Knit London group, but I’m not certain.

  6. That yarn-stormed cob is a lovely bit of silliness, but I’m so happy for you about the cheese – you’ve found a new supplier or worked around the problem with the previous one?

    • This was a different supplier, but much further away so far from ideal. I’m trying to sort out the issues with my original supplier, but he’s very nervous about potential problems. I think we can resolve this by pasteurising the milk (the Food Centre have the facilities) before we make any big batches, but I need to reassure him, so I’m taking things slowly!

  7. Somebody told me about the yarn bombing in Aberaeron, and I didn’t think for a minute it was you! Lol
    Well done, the Welsh Cob is definitely looking more cheerful 🙂
    So many cheeses! Well done you 🙂

    We call it yarn bombing here too – guess that’s regional. I’d love to get involved, but am realistic enough to know it’s a post-retirement bucket list wish! Love what you do. X
