MUSIC WAS MY FIRST LOVE....
Well, dear friends, there's very little to show you this week - life and decorating have simply got in the way of crafting....
But the JanCave has had two coats of Jasmine White, rollered on by yours truly:
...and it's looking a lot fresher. The newly plastered walls were worth every penny! Ron doesn't look that impressed however :-D
So this has been the downstairs crafting - but as usual, I never seem to have one project on the go! The navy knitting at the back is going to be a snood for me to pull on when my cold ears need some TLC - no pattern, I just guessed! The Caron yarn is for a blanket, I've just started the foundation chain. I'm not that keen on the yarn, to be honest, but as I have quite a lot of it, it WILL be used up. The navy yarn is Debbie Bliss Merino, bought for me by our New York visitors and boy, that is gorgeous to work with - so soft. There might be enough left to make some wrist warmers for when I'm playing carols very soon. And the red is for a poppy I knitted for a band friend.
Talking of band, it's been all go - we're rehearsing hard for a contest:
We did a recording in Cardiff on Sunday as part of a televised competition. We're on the long list and have to wait and see if our performance is good enough to be included in the shortlist for the telly appearance next Spring.
And five of us did a community event, where a local Victorian arcade is slowly being done up. Three new shops were opened by the MP and Mayor and we were asked to play some tunes.
We were up on the balcony, hidden from view but the acoustics were stunning, we sounded really good!!
I really hope the shops make a go of it, it's too lovely an arcade to lose.
Now do you see why I've hardly crafted - it's all go!
