just slobbing....


Here, have a little bit of Spring to brighten your day. Warned you I had been playing with my camera....


My teenytiny living room is full of plants, daffs, tulips (& of course oodles of clutter). I warn you, I took some really nice close up birdy pics yesterday so they will appear soon. Do try to contain your excitement.



Have almost finished a set of 3 fabric ATCs to post as part of a (somewhat late) swap on Crafster, (Ok I lied about only turning pages, I did a bit of sewing & painting too). They are not fabulous, but they are my first go, & I certainly don't hate them. This is the one I have pics of so far.... as you can see, they have little doors that open to reveal a different scene, there's the sea, a garden & a forest. Fun to make but they could be much better.

I had a cunning (yet stupid) plan to finish knitting this: (up there, just there) before I go to stay with my mum & my aunty later this week, but my poor hand has objected, so it's been a knitting-free day for me (couldn't believe how painful it was so have had a total break, nothing more strenuous than page turning today) - it has gone together brilliantly so far, by far the most complex thing i have knit (and amazingly I have stuck with it - am doing it as part of a kal on Ravelry so that's helped). The wool is Sirday's Eco wool, in a deep slate grey, & I love it. Not my usual black, but sometimes I live life in the fast lane ....
I am finding it really hard to put text & pictures where I want them to go with this blog. Might have to play about with a typepad one & see what the difference is.
Anyway, am going to go and turn pages again.
