............ than stitching that is
Flower arranging these beautiful spring tulips brought by one of our New Years Eve Guests - okay flower arranging is pushing it a bit - bunging them into water in a tall glass is nearer the mark but they are so colourful on these dark dismal wintry post-Christmas days
I've also been playing with yarn over the Christmas break
Crocheting and a bit of knitting
I used to knit a lot but nowadays I find my arthritic fingers prevent me from creating with the two needles to any great extent
Oddly enough I can cope with crochet with no ill effects though
A friend had knitted herself a scarf in a matter of a couple of days
I thought 'I could do that'
On the way back from our shopping trip yesterday we popped into a local garden centre which has a small craft department
One ball of yarn, two very thick needles and around three hours later.........
A lacy scarf! - excuse the colour combination with the cardigan I only slipped the scarf on for the photo opportunity - I have another one already on the needles in various shades of peacock blue - and guess what, that one won't go with the cardigan either :o)
Not the easiest yarn to manoeuvre but boy does it grow quickly - such fun!
Tanya is having fun with another medium at the moment - stamping on fabric
I was lucky enough in the summer to win Joe Tulip's giveaway
Lovely to take your crafting in new directions
And speaking of giveaways I promised one for this, my 500th post
So if you'd like a chance to receive either of these two little embroidered wall hangings
leave a comment stating your favourite of the two and make sure that I can email you for details if you're one of the two people picked - I'm happy to post globally so comment away
