Now, I have to confess, this post has been written at least 5 times already and then changed and/or deleted. Here I am changing it again. I struggled with what to write, I was not at all inspired for some reason. However, I woke up this morning and just knew straight away what this post should be about. So I ran downstairs - still in the half gloom light - put all the lights on and took some pictures and voila, here is my post - at last!!
Christmas lived up to expectations - exceeded them actually. Not necessarily in a good way if you know what I mean. However, there were good things, and here are some previews to show you some of things that will be coming up in the following days, weeks and months of 2015. I am determined to move onwards and upwards and stronger this year and these things will be a part of that.
Here we go, finally and most importantly of all, positively, Five on Friday...
Any ideas what the thing in the picture above is? It was a gift for Christmas and will be much in use this year!
You might be able to guess what the above items are - from the woolly things! - and again they will be much used. There are actually four of them. I treated myself!
It turns out that "he of the no wool winder" was trying to throw me off the scent of things this Christmas. For our wedding anniversary, he bought me the above. For Christmas he bought the below. They will both go with the item in the first picture and be much in evidence this year I expect!
There was also, of course, some crafting and I will show you this in full as soon as I can get a better photo.
So, instead of gloom, promise of five good things to come this year. All part of onwards and upwards and stronger!
There was no wool winder for Christmas. So yesterday I ordered myself one. It should be here next week. Yay!! I am very excited. I ordered some yarn to go with it. Then I realised the yarn unravels from the middle, so I won't need the winder. That means I will need to order some more yarn doesn't it!!
