I'm not saying these are related, but they are bloody well related... Countess Ablaze

I'm not saying these are related, but they are bloody well related...

July 25, 2019 2 min read

In a week where a seagull snatched a chihuahua dog from a garden, Network Rail introduced speed limits on the railways, Countess Ablaze closed early today, Boris Johnson became Prime Minister of the United (hah!) Kingdom and the UK is burning in a fiery pit of hell reminiscent of a Billy Shakes play, I'm not saying these things are related but they are bloody well related.

Guess whose back⠀
Back again⠀

It is I, Countess and I am back from my annual leave where I spent my days in my second home of Amsterdam. I know that Blazin'Squad are nervous about coming back to work because there is something about me getting past the anniversary of my late husband's death and my brain switching on to some evil plans so they are fully anticipating *something.*⠀

So about 18 months ago, I had this crackpot idea about starting a yarn subscription box. I already wear many hats as a yarn dyer, hosting events, running a retail store as well as an online shop. WHAT'S ONE MORE THING?
