November Plans

I have been feeling quite a bit in a slump at the moment and have been wondering what to do to give myself some energy and focus again and to start enjoying crafting again. I have come across two projects starting in November (both free - an added bonus) and I thought that I could try and combine the two together and kick start some crafting again.

The first one I found out about at Bernice's blog. It is Art Every Day Month and the idea is to create something every day during November, it doesn't need to be a big project as long as you feel it is creative!

The second project I found at and is Attitude of Gratitude.
I know that, for various reasons, I have been feeling that life is not that great at the moment and I thought that focussing on positive things for a month would maybe help lift me again. So for the next month I will be looking at things to be grateful for.

I thought that both these projects seemed to go well with each other - here's looking to a creative and grateful November!

Keep Calm and Get Crafting!!!

Another shawl

 Definately getting the hang of this crochet! This is a small shawl from Inside Crochet magazine No 9 that I have just finished. I used Cortina sock wool which I bought in Lidl ages ago.

I am rather pleased with the result!

This weekend I am off to the Craft Show at the SECC Glasgow with a friend and am looking forward to getting some inspiration there to kick start my scrapbooking, cardmaking again.

A finished project

I have finally finished knitting this jacket for myself - well actually it has been finished for some time except for the button - which my sister kindly sewed on for me when she was down recently. It is knitted in Rowan Cotton Jean wool and the pattern is Lynton from Rowans Coast book. I am pleased with it although perhaps should have knitted it a little longer.

Lifes Turns

Sometimes life just throws a little twist into your life. This happened for our family since my last post. My mother-in-law passed away on 21 September, aged 87. She had had health problems for the last two years and got gradually worse over the summer, finally being admitted to hospital a week before her passing. Her life ended peacefully with her family beside her.

'One thing  I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.' Psalm 27:4
