“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn’t hurt the untroubled spirit either.”
— ELIZABETH ZIMMERMAN

Yet another week filled with wild things – I have a wild kid, two wild dogs, a wild cat… so of course I spend my life chasing after them!
Today we went for a walk in the woods, just before sunset…
I have left everything behind. Twice.
Most people in my previous situations wouldn’t have done it…
Time is a thief. He steals our babies and turns them into toddlers, children, teenagers, grown ups – just like that, in the blink of an eye!
So make the most of every single day you have together! Carpe Diem!
I’m currently lost in mitten world.
The weather has been exquisitely hot here and we have been enjoying the summer.
I have been quietly knitting and crocheting away, starting to prepare for my stall at the Christmas fair at the end of November.
I spent quite a while last week teaching myself to crochet as I have been making leaves and flowers to go on garlands and fairy head dresses.
Here is one of them, what do you think?
I really love knitting in 3D. Every time I feel like I’m making a wearable sculpture. . . : . . . :
