Hello my friends. I was thinking this week about you all, and how saddened we all are about Shaz Silverwolf’s death – and it struck me forceably that the word “friends” is exactly how I see you all. I have been “meeting” with you all for several years – too many for this blog to still have online, as some early posts were lost when I had to change server – and so looked back. Every comment from Shaz was filled with encouragement. I met her in person for the first time on a Friday evening in November 2016. John and I had always said that we would go to the crop – but he never made it. So – in fear and trepidation – I decided to go down to Wiltshire (I had only had my car for a few days, and had never been to Wiltshire!!!) just 2 months after he died. Jan invited me to join her, G, Julia, Shaz and Doug for dinner on the Friday evening. Shaz obviously had been pre-warned I would be there, because Doug fell through the front door laden with goodies – two huge bags full of the most wonderful stash. She simply said she knew at lot of my work was for charity, so wondered if I could use any of it!! I have done, Shaz – thank you. So, just a couple of photos to show how I saw Shaz and Doug – she the hard worker and enabler, Doug an encourager.
I confess to having no desk shot this week as it looks exactly the same as last week – almost! Another layer has been added. The doorbell rang the other day for the delivery of a parcel… A complete surprise when I opened it. A prize give-away from a magazine. I have absolutely no memory of entering the competition – or when it was – but it’s a great prize. Nothing has yet been opened properly, though! Four 8×8 paper pads and five dies. They will be used when my mojo returns from an extended vacation – about the only one who CAN take a vacation at the moment!
But I have continued a little with the cross stitch – not done a huge amount, as the light hasn’t been good – but some progress. Two children now done apart from their heads! It’s beginning to look like something now – or perhaps I just think that because I know what it will eventually be….
I have, however, finished a jigsaw – another Thomas Kinkade.
I’m merrily knitting another sweater – have to do something in the evenings! Nearly finished the front – just another white section, then a pale pink half triangle at the top.
So that’s about it, folks, from the North Wales coast. It did strike me that I hadn’t added a Welsh photo recently – that’s probably because I haven’t been anywhere or done anything… but in case folk are suffering withdrawal symptoms – here’s my favourite view ever – Snowdon is the pointy one third from the right, and, in the foreground, the Twin Lakes – Llynnau Mymbyr
Take care, all. God bless you.
