Dedicated to Peggy

I was going to post pictures of Edens party today but just as we were going out the door to go to one our our family breakfasts we heard that a very dear friend died in the early hours of this morning.
Regular readers will have read about a man called Jo, who I have known since childhood and my Mum has known for over 48 yes, I usually mention him in connection with our charity knitting as he's a prolific knitter.
I don't know all the details but his wife was taken into hospital yesterday afternoon and died very unexpectedly.
Although we did go to breakfast the rest of the day has been spent quietly, the boys have been talking about their memories of Peggy as we use to meet up with them at various knitting clubs over the past years.
I will always remember her as a quiet lady with a twinkle in her eye and knitting needles in her hands.
She will be missed greatly by her husband and children but also by a huge amount of friends, we will hopefully all have the chance to comfort each other at her funeral and through the next months and knit for her charities in her honour.


  1. So sorry to hear about your friend. My thoughts are with her family and friends. Love Helen xx

  2. Oh dear how sad for you all. Thinking about you xxx
