HH took this yesterday, how can you not love rainbows?

HH took this yesterday, how can you not love rainbows?

I have a couple of crafty tasks set for the weekend and I have also been busy with that camera I bought for HH at Christmas….. by gum that was a good buy, I’m really enjoying learning to use a grown up camera.

A hotch potch of photos attached today, follow me if you can! Any other creatives will totally get how so many things can go through your head and in a strange sort of way join up and make sense 🙂

Having really tested myself this week with some exposure therapy …. going out on short planned jaunts has proven quite successful. If you had asked me earlier in the week I would have said it was heinous as the side effect of agoraphobia is waaay too much adrenalin so when I got home after my first controlled jaunt (which didn’t turn out quite so controlled) I felt wretched. I did however stick with it and each day the effects have been slightly less, so all going in the right direction.

Anyway, I digress AGAIN!

The camera. We had a lovely moon rise 2 evenings ago and I wondered if I could get a good shot. What do you think? I was pretty chuffed.

Then today I was chatting away to our lovely old dog Beaudi, she is a 12 year old lurcher who has an identity problem…. she thinks she is part feline and part human. Either way, I think she is the most wonderful hound ever. These darling pets that we take into our lives, they comfort us through tough times, just sit and let you stroke them, hug them, kiss them and cry on them. In good times they are happy for you. On boring days they make you laugh and all in all are just absolute treasures.

Beaudi is rather camera shy, so the fan dangled, super duper fast shooting camera got whipped out. I felt like a bit of a quick drawing gun slinger only with my HH camera. Sum result a couple of lush pictures of my baby.

buoyed up with my growing camera confidence I have taken shed loads of pictures of some of my fabric stash that simply MUST be sold as I am unlikely to use some of these bits and the room is needed for another Walthamstow run 😉 While rummaging, yet again attractively with my rear in the air I came across some lovely fabric that my dear friend sent over from USA a while ago now. They are smallish remnants that are just lovely designs SO I am thinking I will make something this weekend. Have something in mind but won’t commit myself here, gives me room to change my mind. Woman’s prerogative!!

Additionally, the crochet-a-thon I have found myself on in recent weeks has grown to obsessive levels and I expect to take delivery of some yarn tomorrow. Hoping to make a start on a baby blanket with that.

As you can see, rather a lot going on in this noddle of mine 🙂

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, so let’s see if I get either of my craft projects off the ground as planned or will I digress just by way of a change?

Have a poptastic weekend lovely blogland readers x

Rachel can do the knitting! A non knitter she as you may know from my previous blog had the right size needles BUT as they say a bad workman (that would be me moaning) blames his tools…. Rachel used standard sewing thread for the face and it is soooooo much better then my winking wabbit!  Way to go Rachel, see there is a craft for everyone. 🙂

I make an apron for R yesterday. She admired the fabric a while ago. I had bought it as genuine vintage but on its arrival it so WASN’T….. Initially a bit cross but when R admired it I made a mental note. mojo on the rise I got stuck in yesterday. Hope to have a picture of said item on it ‘s new owner soon but for now here’s the unmodelled apron.

With the rising mojo I have been meaning to make a simple winter maxi skirt for ages now, finally did it today. A jaw dropping 45 minutes beginning to end I immediately put it on with a super warm woolie as it’s turned pretty darned nips here in Blighty. Although a very basic design this will get worn loads. Just love a comfy, stretchy maxi for lolling around the house in.

Tomorrow, cutting out a pattern for a tunic top, a more challenging pattern. By that I mean more time consuming. Will share here with you first of course my dear reader ! X
