Knitting news, no camera and falling trees!

I now definately have no blogging camera! Despite many attempts to get it working again it won't even switch on. (I have changed the batteries!) I will have use of a camera at the weekend and have some interesting stuff to take photos of. I have been asked to be involved in a very big project connected with but can't say any more about it at this point. Will hopefully be able to show you more at the weekend.

Can anyone recommend a good cheap digital camera that takes good clear close up photos. There are so many to choose from I don't really know where to start.

At the weekend we went to our friends' home set in the middle of a wood. One day things were wonderfully calm with the sun shining into the beautiful conservatory (can you imagine a more idyllic place to sit and knit?)

Then that same evening the wind and rain arrived. As we were eating our evening meal a huge branch from the nearest sycamore tree came crashing down on the dining room roof...

We were very lucky. It just seemed to bounce off the house. It completely covered the back door. Strangely enough, we all slept very well that night. I guess we thought once it had happened once it wasn't going to happen again.
