Oh my dears, I'm still such an infrequent visitor to my blog but I may start again on a regular basis now as...
... I have retired!
Well, it's a retiredundancy, really as I'm not (quite) old enough to retire officially but have had my voluntary redundancy approved and I left the building on Wednesday. Now I just have to get myself into a new mindset, and being a Bear of Very Little Brain this might take a while.
I love looking at other people's blogs but don't always comment. Do know that I enjoy reading about your exploits, makes and inspirations, however. Here are a couple of my recent bits:
The Blankie of Endlessness has finally come to a halt!
Now for the sewing up, and by lucky happenstance I have just been on a wonderful day's workshop with the lovely Sara Thornett from Rowan on "Finishing Techniques" How can I have been knitting for forty years and never knew how to sew up a garment properly???
Also, delving into my new-ish book, Zakka Style, I have made a cosy home for my baguettes.
Happily I will be spending more time with The Girl Genius and Miss Peach Pudding. TGG and I had fun yesterday making Chinese New Year crafts including paper dragons, a huge cardboard box dragon (which she walked down the street wearing, even though it didn't have a face or tail - in other words, just a painted cardboard box with holes in!) and lanterns. From the photo it would seem she has the wrong idea about "eating Chinese"...
Much love and, hopefully, more blogging! xxx
