Hello............ These January days do seem short, in fact I seem to be sleeping them away. I'm still trying to recover from the exhaustion's of Christmas which is not to kind to us ME/Lyme suffers.
We have had lots of January days that look like this, Grey but they still hold beauty in there own way. While a lot of the UK has been enjoying snow here at the Summerhouse we have been under a freezing cold blanket of grey.
I've been trying to make the most of it though, amidst all of the resting there have been snippets of magazines
and new art supplies.
I've been taking part in a online Creative Mindfulness art course,
although I'm am running somewhat behind, just need to find some energy.
Of course there has been crochet too, I've been making lots of little things easy to pick up and put down in my ten minute activity slots.
I've made another of Jacquie's cute little owls, to fit the Craft Club theme of 'The Owl and the Pussycat'
With the help of my ever present crafting assistant Merlin, hard to believe he's fifteen, he's always into mischief and the craft supplies, which is not so fun when he's trying to get into the paints !!!
As for my Cosy 'Seaside Pebble' blanket it's not been forgotten, it's just on hold for a while. What with a secret project and trying to get ready for the local craft exhibition, I just don't have any spare crafting time at the moment, not to mention the no energy thing.
I know some of you were following along with the colours scheme so rest assured it will be back.
Just before I go I thought I'd share with you the signs from the Summerhouse garden that Spring is on it's way, it maybe cold and grey out there but look, Spring is trying it's best.
even more so in the house just look at the Paper whites I planted a couple of weeks back, I can't wait for them to flower.
