Singing for Peace, Steam Train and Raindrops

Tomorrow my choirs are to be part of a world event – One Day One Choir, A Global Project for Peace. I am telling you about it today so that you can find out if you, too, can join some singing somewhere in the world and be a part of this amazing day. http://www.onedayonechoir.org/    Our day is being organised by Paul Haines about whom I have written before while he was on his Pilgrimage for Peace – click here to read more about that adventure and to find other links.

We heard that a steam train was coming by this morning so joined several neighbours to hang out over the bridge to watch the Cathedrals Express race through – and it did, smothering us all in smoke and steam and evoking memories of our childhoods. For those who would like to know such detail, it was LMS Princess Class 4-6-2 no 46201 Princess Elizabeth.

We pulled our first leeks today and I loved how the raindrops were still hanging on to virtually vertical leaves.

Knitting for Peace, Poppy and Cloud

1    I finished my sixth piece for Wool Against Weapons yesterday so went to buy some more wool today.  Barbara, the owner of my favourite wool shop, Knitcraft Wool Shop, in Pool, near Redruth, had been busy knitting and gave me her contribution in a beautifully soft yarn that will make a lovely comforting blanket after the protest. Thank you so much! I’ve chosen the same soft yarn in a multi-colour pink for my next piece.
