I decided, the other day, after being outside, yet again, in the blithering snow, freezing my b---t off, to treat myself to something i have not done for ages! It's nothing exciting but it made me feel good - and this is it -
well part of it - i have not had a walnut whip for years and saw them in M&S the other day! So my treat was a lovely hot, bubbly bath, a cup of tea, chocolate and a book! It was heaven and i stayed in the bath for an hour - came out looking like a lobster, but we won't dwell on that!
Another lovely few hours was spent the other afternoon - when the roads were finally cleared - in Waterstones - there is something about being in a bookshop that makes me very happy - the end result was rather more than the one book i had gone in for!
I also saw the lastest gadget which is called, i think, an E reader/book - i'm sorry but that leaves me cold - the joy for me is in holding a new book, smelling that new book smell and looking forward to diving in! But maybe that's just me!
On a different subject! I have found that with all the frantic preparations for christmas, the last minute sewing, knitting, etc, the old crafting mojo was a bit lost! But i have been inspired to get going by looking at some lovely blogs - one of them being Marmalade Rose. So i have been doing at least 20 minutes for the last 5/6 days - mainly crochet
sorry the pic is soo c--p but you get the idea!
I've also finished a wrap that i began last winter - its a variation of a Rowan one, and its made with my favourite yarn - Kidsilk Haze
One project i mean to get started is a baktus scarf - i've seen soo many lovely ones that i feel the need to have a go!
Well thats enough waffling for the minute - back to the grindstone!!!
