Instead of giving each other presents at Christmas myself and D decided we would have a few days away. We had a lovely relaxed time here:
and we really can't recommend it enough if you want complete relaxation. We spent a couple of days just in the cottage and went for the occasional walk to either look at the extremely unsociable sheep-who just seemed to want to wee in our general direction as we passed, or further down the lane to see these beauties:
While were away relaxing I obviously had taken some wool and my hooks with me and in those few minutes between making stuff i was also looking online for ideas of new projects and some nice reading-I love reading peoples blogs and being nosey! During this time I found this blog:
I had a really good look around and found a page with something that looked so beautiful and simple and very different to anything Ive made before:
I finally got round to having a go yesterday, however, I was on my own-it says on the blog that you really need a second pair of hands (or finger) but I decided I'd give it go anyway-I didn't think a very furry Persian cat would be any help..she tries but even so..and she seemed to be in a very bad mood yesterday...
anyway, I did it, this is my tea-light (Pictures not great, the light is terrible here now...that's my excuse anyway!!)
Off to shut the chickens away and check for eggs..see you soon!
