Long time no blog, I know.
My job keeps on getting in the way.
I have some catching up to do!
Thank you to everyone who left lovely comments, in my last post, about my mum's drawings. She was tickled pink to receive them.
Thanks, too, to Rachel, from corn flower blue studio, and Cindy, from Chronicles of Yarnia, who tagged me for a meme. I'll respond as soon as I can.
I'd also like to blow virtual kisses to the lovely Andrea, of indigo blue designs, who presented me with an award. I'll acknowledge it properly next time I write here, I promise!
Even though work has been really time consuming, I've managed to get out and enjoy a little of the gorgeous Spring weather we've been experiencing here in Perth
...and I've been crafting, of course.
I've finished the chunky neck warmer I was working on:
...and I've completed the fan scarf I was crocheting:
I'm not totally happy with the second scarf because the weight of the wool pulls the fans out of shape but I've received enthusiastic compliments when I've worn it to work, and that's nice.
I've been gardening too,
and I thought I'd share some of the wire work that I've hung outside.
I have a mermaid reclining on the back fence:
I also have a sun catcher hanging in the garden
which, I've discovered, is hard to photograph because it's so long ~
so here's just a part of it:
I made both the sun catcher and the wire mermaid a few years ago with an artist called Regina at Fremantle Arts Centre. Sadly, Regina no longer lives in Western Australia. I wish she did, she was an excellent teacher and was lots of fun to work with.
I made this beaded ring in one of her workshops too:
