Oh my.......GOURD

The Gourds!!


Hello to all fellow bloggers.

Apologies for not being around much lately, I will not bore you with the details but just say a few words like..... teaching...family.....Icelandic BANKS !!! GRRRR....living/existing.....school trips.....school in general.

Life eh its hard to find time to make bits and bobs and when I do get a minute something seems to crop up. But hey ho. Thanks Viv for giving me a virtual HELLOO where are you, it shook my tail feather enough to kick start me back into action.

So I haven't really been that creative. In a textiles sense. I have been in the kitchen cooking so I guess that maybe counts. I was getting a little overwhelemed with it all and decided it was time to chill out a little...embrace the Autumn nights light a few candles and cook stews (courtesy of Mr Olivers new book/Its fab).

So here is my little bit of sanctuary.....





The dresser makes another appearance; dressed for Autumn....








Very sophisticated an evening meal by candlelight (my hollowed out Gourds). These little fellas were given to me by my fab friend Beth who had them from her dad all the way from France!....









Buttons from the USA hurrah..... to think I had a button phobia as a child the weirdness of it all.....







Retail therapy....can't see in the box though Christmas presents......

I did cheer myself up with a washed roses knitting bag for the knitting club Knit and Natter its more PC than stitch and bitch especially at school.

Thanks for catching up with me.
