Now we know what Julia has been doing of an evening in Derbyshire when she logs off :-D

Seriously, this is an amazing feat. Sound on.


Julia Report 3 May 2012 16:44

Yes, that's right. Took some bloomin' doing but I percyveeeeered.
My secret is out.

Miles and miles of thread, but Her Ladyship the Dowager Duchess thinks the're absolutely adorable. Did I ever mention she was a Mitford sister. She is so adorable, pity the others in the bunch wern't abit like her.
Her son, the present Duke of Devonshire, Peregrine, as we address him, is thinking of comissioning a couple of Giraffes next. That will be interesting as I am only 5 foot tall. LOLOL

Suggest you crochet some chickens Julia they are the Duchess's favourite, well they were the last time I meet her ;-)



Julia Report 3 May 2012 17:30

Yes Carol, they certainly are. She has her own, with many eggs for sale in the Farm Shop, and others going into produce that is also sold there.
The last time I saw our Deborah, she was the site manager for the renovation of a building up at Wetton. The other cottages were marvelous, and had everything we needed for our stay.

Wow, that's some doing, well done Julia, how long did that take to do?



Julia Report 3 May 2012 18:22

Hello Y.Caz, it took about 18 moths in between other commissions, and hospital stays.

I hope you are keeping better these days.

YorkshireCaz Report 3 May 2012 18:44

Hi Julia, I thought it would have taken you much longer when you look at the work in it.
I'm plodding on as usual, the last scan I had was good so it's looking up.
