Craft trials

Standard

Time for something new:

I tried the other day to paint a stone.

It was a very porous stone.

This is my result.

It was rather hard, I’m not so good in drawing so this will be my only one.

It looks nice in the garden, I varnished it to weatherproof it.

I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought,

so I’ll stick to the crafts I do better and enjoy more.

Like knitting  a little fragrance pouch for example.

It is good to try different crafts out.

One way to find out what you truly enjoy.

Don’t be so set on your ways that you can’t grow.”

Hello January – updates

Standard

My Computer was infected with a nasty virus, I had a cold too….

I couldn’t see and read all blogs I wanted,

so please accept my apologies for my rare appearance lately.

My cold is gone and the computer virus got the boot too,

thanks to my wonderful son who knows IT in and out.

You might remember that I had started to knit an Icelandic style jumper.

Well it is ready now… and due to being a warm Winter,

I had not needed it anyway.

So now I am waiting for the cold….

It aids to my meditation and brings calmness and beauty into my home.

Miracles

Standard

Now before Christmas I always get busy trying to perform miracles so I can give them away!

Here is one:

I have this:

and this scarf came out of it:

Then I had stones and bits of metal

and this came out of it.

I love doing craft and knitting, and I think they are the best Christmas presents.

Nothing more beautiful than a self made present which was made taking one’s time and putting lots of love in it.

I do love giving and I like to give with warmth and love!

Wishing you a peaceful and relaxing time towards Christmas!
