I found this lovely blue yarn in Victoria on our trip and just finished a little scarf- there wasn't enough to really make anything else. You can see it in progress on the porch picture below. My newest friend is this rock I found this past weekend at sandbanks. He already had two eyes and all I needed to do was give him a smile. It wasn't easy, he didn't laugh at all my usual jokes so I had to get creative.
Another tea time, another day. It was a bit grey when I made my cup of tea this morning, so the picture is not great. It was a very good cuppa though, my old standby regular tea with milk and sugar. Tea always tastes better when you have really earned it. I have been working away here trying to organise details, colours, sizes. I won't elaborate incase it is top secret but I have been hired to illustrate a children's book and it is a big honour to have been chosen. I am feeling quite tense with the desire to do a good job and somewhere buried deep is a joy at having a lovely project to do. My horoscope today says "Enjoy your challenges. They are making you clever and creative." So at times when my free time seems to shrink down to zero, I tend to go small. These are some things making me happy right now.
