Hello.This is my first post & I am learning as I go along. I have been wanting to start for a long time & have finally got some time to do it.
I live in Lincolnshire in a thatched cottage built in 1741, I love baking, growing flowers & vegetables, knitting especially vintage 30's & 40's patterns, canning & preserving, sewing, rug hooking, history & much much more. This is what I will be blogging about & of course my wonderful family & our days out & goings on.
Here are some photos of what we have been up to this year, hope you enjoy them.

I love the 1940's, we could have stayed here all day.
The twins Christening with their godparents.
They were christening in the church right next door in West Ashby.
We had a garden party & the sun shone wonderfully.
I made the girls dresses.
Our eldest son got engaged to a very special girl.
This is them on the day of the Christening.
Such a special day.
