Story of the 3 Bears

1 ufo sorted , I was playing with some printing but Life gets in the way again... more on the printing later, for Now I'm raking hay
Yesterday the wind blew the Hay against the fence..... before Christmas it was too wet... today it is too dry..... Ed has hay in all stages, cut, raked and rolled . Not knowing what the El Nino brothers will throw at us next, It will be great to have plenty of hay, even ordinary Hay.

Blue beads

I've had some blue beads In my stash driving me silly. Some were reclaimed from my Girls old broken earrings and bangles... I really want a long necklace
I tried treading them....Nah looked like Nana
I tried to crochet them on blue wire....Nice but too stiff, sat funny
I found some beautiful Blue Silk thread slipped them on and crocheted, now they drape, look cute and remind me of a day at the beach.... Not sure how durable the silk thread is...but they feel fantastic.
Now I'm off to rake hay life getting in the way of art again

A New Year

Wow 2011...a new year, a new decade Never really tried a new years resolution, maybe a to do list would be better.... Nat listed 15 things last year, which she has just reviewed...OK so she didn't get them all completed but I like Her Theory. Her Other interesting post was about 'The Stash' I seem to have a huge range of craft 'stuff' which is great living out of town, I can rummage about and come up with things. But I think I do need to commit to finishing some things in this new decade, Or maybe I need to move on ... my craft/sewing has always been for gifts, for us, to wear, reasonably practical. Perhaps I need to make things to sell.... who would buy it ??? I Have an idea selling would be more difficult. perhaps I get a job packing shelves at Coles and just keep making what I like...... Each month ( baby steps) I will commit to finishing something OR/ using something from my stash, When I'm finished it, then and only then can I start a new project.... Commitment 1.. January I will Finish Last years 'stitch and giggle' pass it on piece. happy new year everyone


such a lovelly winters evening
