About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

Pilgrim Harps

What else do you do on your 16th wedding anniversary but go to visit Pilgrim Harps! I guess I was slightly biased as I got a small folk harp a fortnight ago for my 50th and well, I have been bitten by the bug...

I think the 47 string orchestral ones are a bit too big for me, but the smaller 34 string lever ones feel just right. Although the one I have has only 19 strings which I am pointing out in the photo below!

My husband has hold of a soundboard here. He is well into sound so quite appropriate.

Seeing the workshop and the guys making the harps was just delightful. All deep in the Surrey countryside on a sunny day, coming home via the scenic route and we even went up Harps Oak Lane! 

Certainly a trip to remember.
