Thanks Griffin! I have received this award which is lovely as a) it's from the Griffin who spins a delicate yarn, b) it's very attractive, don't you think and c) I have tonsillitis and am feeling a bit sorry for myself.
I think I'm meant to talk about six things I like. (Griffin did!) So for anyone who is interested here goes;I'm rather pleased with my purchase of this inflatable rubber zebra. I love kitsch, unusual, tasteless. I like walking into a house and seeing piles of stuff, books, junk, treasure. I like a cluttered home, which is lucky!
I like baking. Yesterdays pudding, (well tea actually as it was just Simon and I eating and we were both a bit shattered) was chocolate orange bread and butter pudding. This is just like good ole bread and butter pudding but with the bread spread with marmalade, no vine fruit, and a sprinkling of dark chocolate chips between layers. When I cook like this it makes me feel like a 'real woman'!
I like my bed and often force myself to stay up till 10p.m when really I have been yearning for my pj's since 9.
I like lots of other things too, and usually there would be three more well thought out likes but I'll finish up with my top three for today; Penicillin, warm squash and ITV3.
I've been feeling the bloggy love from three lovely ladies in particular this week so if you fancy taking the tag Karen, Dogdaisychains, and Iris and Lilly please go right ahead, otherwise just take my thanks for cheering me when I feel so bloody miserable. (that was a whinge so I must be on the up!)
I'm sad to hear about Julia Caprara and will have another look at the work I started on a weekend with her. I was struggling with getting a technique until the last day with half an hour to go when I took the bull by the horns and just frantically started rotary cutting and bonding. I remember her giving me a big squeeze and saying 'good girl', I remember how that felt, someone else sharing in the happiness of creation. Usually textiles for me is so solitary and the blog is about trying to get that feeling of shared excitement. I'm wondering if anyone would fancy a round robin type thing in the new year. Maybe something based on a particular colour palate or stitch? Let me know what you think!
