WHAT date is it?!

I’ve no idea when I last posted – I’m sure I posted a few things…”in my imagination”… Never mind. I’ve not stopped running, worrying and weaving since I last posted. I’d wish there was less of the worrying, but then I’d probably be dead, so maybe not – so I’ll not complain too much aboutContinue reading “WHAT date is it?!”

It is such a gorgeous blend of warmContinue reading “Rebirth – in gentle golds and soft wools”

Let’s talk happy happy

God, talk about doom and gloom…it seems never ending (and then there is lovely Swine flu which crept in the back door when everyone was worried about everything and anything else you could mention). Not that it will necessarily improve the situation, but I want to talk about something nice, uplifting and positive – BeautifulContinue reading “Let’s talk happy happy”
