Over the summer Mr L and I have been setting up a new allotment, to escape the wet and soggy scenario described in Spinning and watching the water levels fall. It was a shame to move from an otherwise nice spot, but watching your vegetables and fruit bushes disappear under a lake of water when the floods roll in can be demoralising. So when the offer came to move up the road (to a site that stands high and dry when all around is drenched) we couldn't look a gift horse in the mouth. Even if it meant juggling this new venture with ongoing work on the soon-to-emerge, expanded In Stitches Daily towers.
So, before some pictures of crafty WIPs and FOs from others (below), I give you these:

I'm looking forward to the next evening of convivial sewing, cutting and sticking, or whatever crafts we feel inclined to bring along.
