A marvellous 91 year old lady called Margaret Seaman who lives in Norfolk has created a knitted replica of a Nightingale hospital to raise money for charity.

She had already knitted a replica of Sandringham and of Great Yarmouth seafront, both absolutely beautiful.

I just saw this on the ITV News if you want to check it out.

I saw it, it was magnificent. What a clever woman.

Fabulous, wasn't it?

I loved it.

Her knitting was perfect and all so intricate, down to the last detail.

What an incredible lady and she hasn't been knitting for long!

Thanks for the link, Lisagran, I couldn't do the link on my other device.

I've been knitting for years but could never produce anything like that!

Thank you Callistemon and Lisagran for the thread and the link.
Wow - three cheers for Margaret Seaman - flying the flag for older women ... What a lovely project.
Her model of Sandringham was really lovely ...
