2018 in Review

As I often do at this time of year, I take some time to go back through all the photos I have taken and assess everything I’ve done and achieved. On a daily basis it can feel like I haven’t done much, or I’m just treading water. But the overview shows my just how full my life really is. Some of these pictures you may have seen before, I ask for your patience!

January – was full of making. I got back into my love affair with miniatures by putting together a tiny library that James bought me, and then played with water colours using the new paints I’d received for Christmas. There was a trip with a friend to the Rijksmuseum, and on a separate trip to the Maritime Museum. We also went to our first concert of the year; Depeche Mode!

The first rule of blogging is; never mention how long it’s been since your last post.

Playing Catch-ups!

I don’t mean to brag (warning; bragging ahead) but we have been busy! I have so many things I want to tell you which I haven’t had the time or energy to get around to! So instead of in depth posts about everything, I’m going to do one giant catch up post. And lucky you, you’re reading it right now!

First I shall finish off telling you how amazing Perth was! We went out to the desert (in the pouring, flooding, rain) and visited the Pinnacles! Would you like to know more?

Isn’t it wonderful?!? So I’ve moved on to a new circular shawl. Apparently all is not right with the world unless I’m working on a giant piece of lace. Would you like to know more?

Today’s Table – Dreambird

There were a few questions when I posted about visiting Enkhuizen, regarding the yarn I bought. The project I was in the middle of was one you’ve all seen before, my Dreambird. The inspiration came from a ball of Kauni in the “EQ” colourway.

I love the rainbow so much! And had been dreaming of this yarn since it was first brought to my attention years ago! Would you like to know more?
