I'm in a total funk...... can't get paper out of the drawer..... been off work today and had so many good intentions but nothing happened again! It's literally been months since I stuck paper and glue!

I'm behing on cards, no photos even printed since springtime..... just can't seem to find the energy.

On the other hand I've been really busy with my crochet....a shrug, a baby's shawl and dress, scarf and hat set, lacey ladies shawl, 3 baby blankets......

Just to make me smily and possibly give me the shove I so desperately need here is my fav photo of Ross from ths summer.

Not quite Scrapping yet.....but getting closer!

Today I cleaned the desk to the point where i could see it and my cutting board again..... a BIG job!

Then I made these:

In real life the red bands and the sentiments are mounted on Pop dots... but somehow look totally flat in the photo!

I was desporately running low on cards, so have decided to make a stock of fun and easy ones. On one hand they fill up my box again and on the other gently get me back into the "paper cutting" fun!

We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Busy...Not Scrapping!

Well I've not scrapped for ages... but I have been keeping busy. Since january I have taken up knitting and Crochet.

I could always Knit, just not fast, and not fancy!.... for that matter I still can't! I've started a knitted/crochet blanket patchwork using wools supplied in a kit form, and supposed to progressively teach skills.... so far 8 squares done.

When I realised some of the squares would be crocheted I was terrified as I've never been able to do it! Mum tried to teach me years ago, but I was bring on Youtube. Brilliant!

So since then, Granny Squares, Baby Blanket and today my very first hat.

Basically I've decided I much prefer crochet to knitting, possibly because it's so much quicker.
