Now a little something for me ....

Last Christmas a special friend from England sent me this gorgeous yarn along with other knitterly goodies. Since then I've taken it out and stroked it lovingly occasionally, but mainly I've had it tucked away safely in tissue paper until the day when I could relax and enjoy using it. I have a few days now before leaving for a very chilly London and our family Christmas .... so the time has arrived to make something snug for myself :))

Hi Bee
Such a talented woman. I suppose the garments are not really a man thing, but I have to confess, I have made a few garments myself (outdoor fleeces)in the past. I can appreciate your skills and creative design in these pieces.
I also love your artwork. Very contempory and vibrant. I`m afraid my work seems dull now after seeing your work. Best Regards
Trevor

Hi Trevor
Thanks for popping in and for your comments. I've enjoyed my crafty break from the studio. But will be back to painting in January. Your style of watercolour painting is wonderful, and something I much admire. The video demo on your blog is fascinating! :))
Cheers Bee
