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 Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, 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. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

I love Colour

As you can probably tell if you follow my blog I love colour and am impelled to sort them into rainbow order. Check out my Colour Fest and Colour Junkie posts on loom bands!

Having just visited my Mother in Wales, where she has loads of yarns left from when she had a wool shop, I was lucky enough to get lots of balls of Rowan DK Cotton for making lots of colourful things.

Why lots of yarn you may ask? Well recently I met a few ladies who wanted to learn to crochet so I started a Crochet Club.

Then I came across the most wonderfully colourful crochet blog, Attic24 where I suspect Lucy has the same fascination with colours as me.

Anyway I have made a couple of Attic24's Birdie Decorations, aren't they fun.

I'll be able to make a few more for Christmas now that I have all the colours of the rainbow.
