What’s on Your Needles?

Standard

I arrived at my Happy place today, driving through heavy rain and mist into the sunshine. My happy place is also known as my Craft Caravan!

Today I hit the knitting! This is another UFO ( unfinished object) from my Supersized stash! It started out as a sweater project but was too big so is being reincarnated as a throw or Afghan. Well it was BIG!

I love this yarn and it is so soft. Hopefully it will be good to snuggle under when eventually finished. I will keep you posted!

Also I was not in a happy place when I first arrived as my Peace Lily was very sad. I’m guilty of neglect as I have not been here for a few weeks due to global travelling. The Peace Lily is now in intensive care and hopefully recovering. I must admit to running more of a Hospice for plants than a nursery as my fingers are definitely not green.

IMG_2657When in Agra I visited a marble workshop where men worked day upon day creating marble masterpieces. They inlaid semi precious stones into the marble to make gorgeous tables coasters and hand carved elephants I couldn’t carry one in my hand luggage ( and neither could I afford it) but they were absolutely beautiful.

Agra is also the home of the beautiful Wonder of the World known as The Taj Mahal I visited just after the dawn on a magical misty day. I am so very grateful to have had the opportunity.

 

 

 

Welcome to my Craft Room

Standard

Hello and welcome. I can show you around my craft room because it’s tidy! Whoo Hoo! Well, sort of. Its not the Worlds biggest craft room but it’s all mine. Small but beautifully formed.

I have sorted, dusted, sneezed and organised. I’ve even labelled projects and threw out rubbish. Now Hubs would say that I don’t have a craft room but a craft house. He’s not far wrong as all my WIP S( works in progress) seem to travel around the house and are very fond of the dining room table.

Anyhow come and take a look at my happy place……….

Just a small selection of my craft books.

Christmas PrepOrganised?Room with a viewWell dear friends I hope you enjoyed your sneak peak! Come back soon for another visit.

Gratitude

Standard

Gratitude is a bit of a buzz word at the moment but don’t knock it! This dawn I am grateful to be away with good friends.I am grateful that we have been friends for more than twenty years. I am more than happy that the group contains natural organisers so I let them! There are natural wash uppers, so I let them!

I am grateful to share gifts, laughs and maybe tears with these “girls” I am grateful to grow old together.

I am grateful to wake in this lovely place and enjoy the quiet.

So grateful is perhaps an overused word but don’t knock it! Just be grateful and enjoy it!IMG_1429

Dawn in the woods.

IMG_1426Ok don’t type “yes” I know that you agree.

A Busy Life.

Standard

Ive just started reading a book called Enchanted Britain with the sub title Mystical Sites in Rural England Scotland and Wales by Marc Alexander. The reason being that there is a facination with standing stones and long forgotten history. I’m searching for a definitive list of Neolithic structures, burial chambers and stone circles in Britain. I think that this would/will make an interesting project and maybe I can visit any of these structures, oh and castles! Any top tips will be gratefully received.

imageI’m pressing on with my current knitting project as I am going to visit Woolfest in Cockermouth Cumbria in a couple of weeks. I want to be organised so that I can max out my yarn purchases, new craft projects and knitting know how. Whilst I am there I hope to visit Castlerigg stone circle once again.
