My First Post!

Reasons to be Cheerful ~ It's sunny today! (but cold)

Things that make me go GRRR! ~ Housework!

Well, at last a blog from me, and what pressure, my first blog entry!

The above shows one of my paintings of the Southern alps here in the South Island of New Zealand. They are visible from all over Christchurch and beyond and are a magnificent sight in winter when they are covered in snow like this.They are about 80 miles away but the snow and the clear air make them look much closer.

Today is a tidy up day. My son is at pre-school and I have the housework and posting out to keep me busy.I hope to get creative later but wanted to do some dyeing and my fiber has been held up at customs (another Grrr!).Maybe I'll finally get to spin up my batts from Terrabellaspuns fiber club. They are sitting there looking tempting and sparkly!

I spun up the first one into a slightly thick and thin single and plied it with a fine boucle with some beehives.I'm not sure yet what I'm going to make, maybe some little purses.I have some fab bag handles at the moment.

I may make a little bowl tonight I love these! I am thinking of making them to match some little soaps like the ones I have up in my store at the moment.The soaps just snuggle nicely into the bowl and would make a great gift.

Well thats about it for now,short and sweet I know but I hope you enjoyed it and will follow me.This is still very much a work in progress!
