I SEE YOUR TRUE COLOURS SHINING THROUGH...
I didn't join in last week because there was nothing to share with you craftwise and I couldn't get away with random pics....
...so what's changed? Well nothing much!
I'm still doing much of my reading, crafting and general day to day stuff at my kitchen table!
I'm using up a spare ball of variegated yarn to make a preemie blanket for the local hospital (as organised by the Knit & Natter group) I quite like the yarn but it seems to have taken AGES! Think I'll crochet the next one using the lavender yarn that Wipso gave me when she was down..it'll have to be a close stitch as they don't like lacy blankets - the kiddlywinks get their fingers trapped in the holes. That funky card is from Neet...here's a close up:
It's funky huh?! I love the bright colours which are even more day-glo in reality...thanks Neet, we love it!
The other things to share are these gorgeous table mats and coasters which were a house warming present from my brother and SiL. It's a print of a hare from an old book which has been transferred to tiles made of Travertine marble - they're really heavy and I LOVE them! I like the way the coasters come in pairs of a front and back...if ever you're at my house, don't take offence if you get a back end to put your brew on!!
The other work table is this:
We've done so much painting, we should have taken out shares in Dulux! Between decorating, being in Band contests and other stuff, the weeks are just zipping past.
A couple of pics to finish with which were taken on 'my' beach. The tide was far out and exposed the wreck which has been there for over a hundred years. It was one of those atmospheric silvery grey days....there's any amount of interesting things growing on the timbers..barnacles, seaweed that looks like hair etc
It lends itself to some weird pics!
You can either see 3 Nessy monsters or standing stones or whatever takes your fancy. Great pic Mr LLJ!
Thanks for dropping by and putting up with my craftless state...I'm not promising any different for next week!!
