Annus Horriblis

In honour of ringing out my Annus Horriblis I have made Papa's fish cocktails....which are too good to share with unappreciative children!

I plan to spend the evening with my handspun two ply of wendsleydale and seasilk refining the prototype of one of my jury pieces for 2009.

Im into armwarmers at the moment with sort of a feminine victorian goth feeling.

I really need to make it to Dressew for some ribbon.

Well Im off to settle in with my fish cocktails and wool so on that note I wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous Peacefilled New Year.

boxing day thoughts

Yet another year passes. The kids are grown and after the last year I am grateful for another christmas spent with them. The 28 1/2 pound turkey cooked and eaten with enough remnants to keep them satisfied for a few days. As i plod my way through washing Grandmas china and sweeping up tree needles I ponder christmases past and future. I think i like boxing day better than any other day of the year. I have so many creative ideas in my head needing out and january unfettered to let them out as I quietly try and set order to the christmas disaster zone I am planning my journey.

Happy Boxing day to all!

Im dreaming of a white christmas

The trees that lline the street are full of christmas lights making me want to knit socks....not sure what the connection is but I am going with it.....the boys are getting hats and socks as my hand made gifts this year. I hope i convince them to put christmas lites on the house this year.
Im feeling very homey and creative at the moment. The stress of pre show production is gone and now the ideas are percolating.
