Boy oh boy am I pleased this week is over. It started off rather nastily I must say. I spilled water all over my beloved computer! And thus began the hunt for repairs... where each "expert" who was meant to be helping me with my plight treated me as a criminal! As though I'd besmirched the name of all Apple consumers by knocking a glass of water onto my baby. HELLO PEOPLE! I am the victim here!!!
I apologize for that rant, but if I have been less available in the emailing or blogging universes, that's the reason. I have a little netbook for now... not a very powerful machine but she will have to do for now.
I have indeed begun to create! Surprisingly though, paint hasn't hit any canvases around here. I've been doing more of the gluing, knitting, moulding sort of creating. I have a knitted creation to share. When I knit... well I only know how to do it in a straight line really. And I would love to be able to create things like socks and mittens, but I haven't got the patience to learn. I also crochet, but that is even worse as far as propriety goes. I am all over the place with that. I even use crochet hooks to sort of... sew yarn. Haha! So without further ado, I am introducing you to my raglan quilt.
Isn't it utterly bonkers?? I am in bliss. Yarn and colours and softness. Ahhhh, wonderful.
It looks little I know, but at just 5'3" it covers MY toes! Perfection when the snow keeps on stacking up. We were snowed in two days this week! It just wouldn't stop! I kind of enjoy an excuse to stay inside and create though :)
Can you see the smoke rising up from the Goblin mines in the distance? Perhaps not but I assure you it is there! Everytime the sky is a pale violet and you can see the snow falling and it's one of those nights where everything is bright as day but it's so obviously night? I love that... that's when I can feel the universe's magic the best. That's what I consider true spirituality. The ability to feel that greatness and expanse in nature. It makes me think of Van Gogh's Starry Night.
I have been working on something that will be shared very soon! It's for miss elfin Willa, to live in and call home. So hopefully she'll love it. I already have other plans in case she decides to move into the doll house instead. Completely up to her. Here's a sneak peak just for all of you...
Hope you have a lovely weekend!
P.S. You may have noted the layout changes around here. Let me know what you think. Though I must be honest... I don't know if I'd be able to figure out how to get it back the way it was anyway! HAHA!
