Opening my Attic window, waving a gentle hello to you all :: Hellooooooooo! Thank you so, so much for all your wonderful messages on my last post, it's been heart warming and extremely uplifting to read them all. Thank you, thank you. I thought it would be a nice idea to create a Photographic Blog Retrospective, I was/am very excited to do this, but the reality is that it is a Very Big Job. Six years, nine hundred posts (900!!). Seventy-two monthly files of photographs, which on average contain 300 images each, yeah, a big job to condense that lot into a blog post. I have made a good start, I am half way through in fact, so will definitely persevere and share that with you when I'm there with it.
I'm having a busy week, lots going on here. I've been working on some crochet that's not quite ready to share just yet, but I am jittery with excitement over it. I've also spent a lot of time working on Yarndale this week, plans, meetings and a journey to The City (image above, isn't that Victorian arcade amazingly beautiful?). We are just about to start work on a FaBuLouS yarn bomb project which I will share with you very soon. I am also sampling/designing a pattern for this year's Global Community project for Yarndale which should be ready to share at the beginning of April. I absolutely LOVE planning all of this, pulling together a multitude of creative ideas and visions and involving myself in my local community. But it is pretty time consuming.
Mixed-bag weather this past week, some stunning spring sunshine, some wet and stormy days and some eery foggy days which draped the landscape in a veil of water droplets. My "red" hyacinths are in full bloom on the mantel, they are utterly glorious. More of a deep, vibrant pink than a true red, but most definitely the best colour hyacinths I've ever had.
Right now I am positively drooping, and am fantasising about my rosy pillowcases and my freshly plumped up feather duvet. So I will love you and leave you for now, thanks a million for calling by to catch up. Back soon!
