i am torn between the two. i have a dragon fodder page on my fb, i keep this up to date with the jewellery i make and don't seem to be able to make time for the blog as well. liam is now almost four and is in grade 000 at woodhill college, so actually i should have more time. but i've been crocheting, knitting, doing embroidery and drawing/paintiing.
time just goes by. i don't seem to have been doing so much but i'm always busy, never bored. it's been a tough winter, i've had bronchitis about every six weeks. hopefully with spring almost here, things will get better.
we had to move mom from her cotttage to frail care at the beginning of this year. mom has dementia and is no longer able to care for herself. she has become very frail. while clearing out the cottage, i found a box of buttons that mom had been collecting for who knows how long. i made a wrap bracelet for myself and Lindy using some of the buttons. i'm sure i posted a pic of mine earlier.
bevan did a swap, one of my blankets for a display for my jewellery. i don't have a pic of the blanket but claire took it over and bevan needed another one. it had to be big enough to cover all 2 meters of him. i went for chunky yarn to get it done quicker. beautiful large granny square blanket spread out on one of the old beds we inherited from richard's aunt.
large pottery and acrylic carved beads strung on leather cord.
i'm finding it increasingly difficult to find beads etc in pretoria. even jo'burg no longer has much of a variety. i've been importing from the usa recently, but with the exchange rate its a killer.
