So far ...


Went to the hairdressers and went shopping. The beads I bought on e-bay arrived, 50 is so few!! 


 I'm so pleased I bought a hydrangea this year.


Met the Nutty Knitters.  Maxine a textile artist/designer, who I had met at Wrest Park craft fair e mailed me to join her and some friends for a fortnightly get-together. Said it didn't matter if I didn't knit! They are a group of ladies who are interested in all sorts of textile/arts and were very encouraging. Some were mambers of the Beds art group. Sat in Maxines lovely farmhouse kitchen and drank tea, ate home made cake and chilled out. I shall be going again

This should have been my image for Wednesday. But today I have been for a theraputic massage to try and iron out some of the knots in my shoulders. Computers and sewing machines don't help.

(Had a bit of fun in Photoshop Elements)

Wonderful photo of the spider Jill. I love it. Glad you had a good time with the Nutty Knitters. With all that tea and cake did anyone spend much time making anything? If not, it looks as if you've restocked your supply cupboard and will make up for it pretty quickly. Lesley.

your day out at the farmhouse with kindred creative spirits sounds just perfect!

Looking after ourselves is often underrated, I should do more of it too.

Thanks for stopping by and your well-wishes for my MA course :)
