endless intrigue

            neck pouch

Little treasures...
its so easy
to forget 
about all the small
and seemingly insignificant
things that surround you
But sometimes
something little
catches your eye
a feather
a splodge 
a flaw 
and you think oh how magical.
the small things can make me so happy
and remind me
of the joy to be found
in everyday things

There they are all standing in a row

At long last...
     I has a special made yarn shelf

   now my new collection of yarns isn't stuffed
into a box...

   but instead on display in a long pretty row


how happy it makes me!

and how pretty pretty they appear in this new arrangement...

colour changes a space and I continually 
    find myself just gazing at all these colours together

and how they interact... mmmmmmmmm

Hooded somesing somesing


there you are...

   what did she say...
                        I'm looking for something.


             whatever it is that I come across
             whatever it is that I am meant to find

          I find wondrous things wherever I be
Oh the brilliant unexpected!

As ze chilliness creeps up

Gradually it be happening...
         Layers are coming out.  
  Socks, beanies and gloves 
are rearing their pretty knitted faces.

     They keep those bits of your person warm that 
              seem to get cold first.

     And thus begins the making of new gloves/ arm-warmers 
          that keep wrists, hands and a little of your arms 
                toastie .

  I made em to keep your whole hand area warm
       but also allow your fingers to function.

 Cos you can't stop doing fun things
       just cos its a bit cold.

   this be a newly made pair
                                    Over and out x

Start stop start

 I shall begin with...
      some things I treasure and embrace

         colour in all its bizarre magnificence
& obscurest combination's

things made with ones own two hands
with time, effort 
                 & (of course) love 

the unexpected beauty of
