Decorative panel

I have had a piece of wood for 2 years now and decided, at last, to do something with it. Created this panel for my therapy room. 600mm x 600mm.

Just do it yourself

I wanted this done yesterday and my contractor was ill, so I just did it myself. Have to still finish it, fill it and furnish it ;-)

Here today, gone tomorrow

I had to have my palm tree removed. It was struck by lightning last year and I was hoping it would make it, but it has slowly been dying. I'm sad. It was one of two trees on my property when I moved in.

PrettyUgly presentation

Well, I presented the PrettyUglys to the Kamers team yesterday morning. Waiting for a yes or no ;-)
Geoff and Nikki gave me the flowers to wish me luck. I displayed the PrettyUglys in my gran's old suitcase. Wanda called Wespar a wolf, he was a little upset but managed to keep his mouth shut. The Kamers team kept 4 PrettyUglys for photography, for the magazine. And then I spent the rest of the day in bed reading. It was wonderful.

Turbine Hall Art Fair

Enjoyed the morning. Even bought a piece of art ;-)
Sorry about the flares and glares on the images.

67 blankets

Great idea. Such wonderful designs and made with love.
These were on display at the entrance to the Turbine Hall Art Fair.

Her Majesteas Salon - revisited

Went through to Heidelberg on Saturday for lunch. Her Majesteas Salon - high tea parlour. Delicious oxtail pot pie and the best-in-the-world-ever lemon meringue. Yum. What a lovely afternoon.

Yellow is my favourite colour!

These flowers are still from my birthday, three weeks ago. And they were not from WW ;-)

Christmas decorations

I am drying these as part of my Christmas decorations. Once they're dry I am going to spray them this very same colour. I can picture it all already. Awesome. Ha ha.

Everyday DIY

No harm in doing a little DIY before work in the mornings. Benches and garden furniture before the rains start.

This and that continued

Metalwork - love the colours. Fairylights - magical evenings in the garden. Breakfast - Bacon, leek, cheese quiche. Rain and shine - it rained with the sun out, followed by thunder and clouds. Yarn bomb - my dogs yarn bombing my garden. Prank - they filled Chris' office with balloons for his birthday. Happy birthday Chris ;-) Winter warmers - made 3 pairs of fingerless gloves. It's been cold!

More great work from Lionel!

Wall hanging or scarf?

I start crocheting the little section marked in yellow. THEN, I added just a little bit to it, then another little bit and before you know it....
So, wallhanging or scarf, you decide, or trash haha!
