Funny what light will do to colours. Above and below are the same potential scarf, using some stash yarn with the new thick Riva yarn from Debbie Bliss. Just playing really. JJ is not yet sure if he likes it or not and thus whether he'll ever wear it.

Happily this no longer applies so much as I did so much re-shaping in 2012. I gained 10 lbs in 2011 during the stressful OU course and then in 2012 I took 31 lbs off so am wonderfully healthy at 8st 10- 8st 12.
Love this picture and am thinking I haven't done any machine embroidery for years now?
None in 2011 or 2012? Did I do any in 2010 or 2009? When did I stop? Crochet was started in 2005 and gradually has been taking over.
Books to read from Library, Hobbit will have to wait?

Yummy stir fry on Friday. Dancing on Saturday so I cooked for family: Tikka massala turkey with rice and green beans, but had freezer fast meal myself.( lighter to digest)

This is to be my diary of events for a creative crafting sort of person with all the happenings that occur in this day and age in English family life.I am very much learning as I go along, my eldest is my first at all the things that occur in a young person's life as it's all very different from when I was a little girl and I did not grow up in England.
Totally obsessed with textiles and the making of things- anything!
My passion is to make things with yarn or fabric or thread : any textile crafts or beads too.
