Woolly Spires

I mentioned on my blog about St Denys Church having solar panels fitted,
to reduce its Carbon Footprint.

Well in Sleaford a small group of volunteers are part of an Arts project,
I am one of them, and we are knitting a model of the church.
Its three feet high.

If you look on facebook under Woolly Spires,
you will see what is being made.

Here picture one is the knitted solar panel awaiting placement.
Click on the picture to enlarge it.
Underneath are two of the roof towers, also the gate way to the side porch of the church.
I understand that the homeless used to sleep out in this porch.
They have had accommodation found.
The space has since been closed in and taken into the church.

Next are two of the three belfry window panels.
The third is already made and fitted.

There are six doors to the church. The main one is again already fitted.
These are the remaining five.
There are wonderful stonework panels about the roof and crenelations.
I have started these and am waiting for group agreement as
to which should be used.

When the church is completed it will travel the county.
Another four churches are planned to be knitted from various points of Lincolnshire.

Eventually the five churches will be displayed in The Usher Gallery In Lincoln.

Mini Cooper Sport Driving Experience

In March I received a mum's day gift of a Driving Experience in a Mini Cooper Sport,
from Dancin' over at In the Pink.

On Saturday 21 August a warm and overcast day,
Dancin' took me and my family, to Rockingham in Corby, Northampton, where I took the experience.
What a thrilling day it was.

I was amongst a huge group of people taking part in various driving experiences.
In the above pictures, three of which contain the Mini Cooper Sport that I was driving,
you will see some of the other vehicles.

The time passed quickly but is still clear in my mind. I did not mind moving aside for a Lamborghini and a Ferrari.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience, and am still walking about with a huge smile on my face.
Thank You Dancin'.
I can not think of anything which will beat that experience.

Blog Layout

What a lovely weekend.
We shared it with Dancin' at "In the Pink", Mr Dancin' and the pups.
More about the weekend tomorrow, when I will post some pictures.
I was so pleased that Dancin' could show me how to change the layout design on my blog.
I like Acer's and have several in the garden, so this design seemed appropriate.
Let me know what you think of it.
Thank you Dancin'
